Speed Rack serves up charity with a twist: At their all-female speed bartending competitions, 100% of the proceeds benefit breast cancer research and education! This weekend, Speed Rack comes to Nashville. Tennessee ladies, you know what to do: Round up your gals and head to Mercy Lounge this Sunday afternoon to booze it up with some of the fastest female bartenders in the area!
We asked some of the competitors to send us recipes that they think define “Nashville in a glass.” Here’s what they came up with:
Introducing "Grandpa's Ex"
Created by Carley Gaskin, Bar Manager, Butcher and Bee Nashville
1.5 Rittenhouse Rye
.25 Pedro Ximenez Sherry
.25 salted caramel
2 dash Decanter bitters
The Tomcat Sour
Created by Camille Razo, Patterson house: “I love this drink because its approachable but still interesting. That is what Nashville is all about. Making drinks that are simple but amazing. Classic builds with interesting flavors.”
2.0 oz Old Tom Gin
.75 oz lemon
.50 oz ginger syrup
.50 oz Aperol
Shake, strain, and serve over rocks.
Phew! Drool-worthy! If you’re in the Nashville area, you’d better scoot your boots down to Speed Rack’s Nashville event this Sunday! Details below and on speed-rack.com.
