Stamford’s Best Bartender Contest

Stamford Best Bartender Contest

Congratulations to the 2023 Stamford Best Bartender Contest Winners!

It was a perfect summer evening on the waterfront patio of Harbor Point in Stamford. The 11th annual Best Bartender Contest event, hosted by Stamford Magazine, was sold out once again. Hundreds of guests enjoyed lite summer bites and drinks designed by talented local mixologists, chefs and establishments.

The competition was tough this year with bespoke signature cocktails from the bartenders vying for first place. Summer flavors, from fresh peaches, ripe pineapple and even fresh shaved coconuts made the cocktails unique and refreshing. This year, Sign of the Whale wowed the crowd with an incredible strawberry lemonade sorbet cocktail and won Voter’s Choice for Best Bartender & Cocktail. Next, our guest judges, The Granola Bar founders, Julie Mountain and Dana Noorily, announced their choice for Best Bartender & Cocktail – Flinders Lane’s Peach Fuzz Dove! It was an evening to remember in Stamford with friends, waterside views, summer music, and delicious libations. Cheers to next year!
