Bartenders Costume Up for Liquor Brand Promotion

On August 22, Appleton Estate Reserve hosted the Remixology Bartenders Challenge at Drink. Three local bartenders—Sean Frederick, William Codman, and Stephanie Clarkson—were tasked with creating cocktails inspired by Boston-based movies.

Dressed in Celtics-inspired gear as the film Celtic Pride played in the background, Frederick shook up a cocktail called "The Flip from French Lick." Combining the host brand's rum with Celtic Stout syrup, Riga Black Balsam liqueur, and an egg, the cocktail helped Frederick claim the competition's first prize. In September, he'll head to New York to compete in the Bartenders Challenge Finals round against winners from Miami, San Francisco, and New York. The ultimate winner will get an all-expenses-paid trip to Jamaica.
