Let’s give huge congratulations to the semi-finalists moving forward to the Live Shake-offs. The winner at each regional competition will be invited to compete in the Cocktail Classique Finals in New Orleans. Then each mixologist will have a chance to earn a once-in-a-lifetime educational experience - a trip to the Combier Distillery in the Loire Valley, France, where Lucid Absinthe is made according to traditional French methods.
This competition, sponsored by Lucid, challenged each of our applicants to submit a recipe that used at least ½ ounce of Lucid Absinthe. The cocktails were judged on appearance, aroma, creativity, taste, and ability to enhance, not overwhelm, the botanicals used in Lucid.
These semi-finalists are the top 10 applicants from their respective regions (Western, Southwest, Midwest, Northeast, and Southeast):
