Denver's Premier Cocktail Garnish Competition
DiningOut Magazine & Diageo began to notice an increase in excitement around cocktail garnishing throughout Denver. On social media, bartenders were (and still are) posting photos & videos of themselves using scissors, fire, flowers, smoke and more behind the bar. In an effort to build off this enthusiasm and creativity, Garnish Games was born.
Our hope is that Garnish Games creates and builds a sense of community. We want bartenders to suggest the other participating bars to their guests, and on top of that, we want the front-of-house working with the back-of-house to efficiently craft their garnishes.
