Liquor Snob is Going to Vegas!
That's right, kiddies, our fearless Editor in Chief will be getting on a plane tomorrow to head to Sin City. He'll be there a couple days, and in between bouts of blackjack and bedspins (kidding) he'll be attending a "shot drink showcase" being held by Harlem Liqueur. If you haven't heard of Harlem, it's a Dutch kruiden liqueur named after Haarlem, a town outside of Amsterdam.
We haven't tasted Harlem yet, but the reviews say it's similar to our beloved Jagermeister, but with more of an orange vibe. According to the info we got, "Over the past month, HARLEM® in connection with The Tasting Panel has challenged the finest bartenders across the country to go head to head in the quest for the best 2 oz. drink using HARLEM combined with innovative ingredients of their choosing." And we get to go to Vegas to be part of the final showcase of said 2 oz. (read: shot) drinks.
Harlem is imported by the same folks who brought you the Ketel line of vodkas; you'll notice Ketel makes its way into the drink recipes below. Check them out, and we'll make sure to keep you updated on the blog, on Twitter, and probably on Facebook too (yes, we're attention whores...errr, dedicated to keeping you informed).
