Five years ago, Salt Lake magazine held its first Farm to Glass Cocktail Contest. It featured five bartenders—then called mixologists. Since then, the contest has become a fixture of the city’s dining calendar—it’s now a competition between even up to 18 bartenders. For the whole month of September, bars and restaurants will offer their own special cocktail using locally farmed ingredients and liquors from local distilleries. The public is invited to taste the drinks, then vote online for their favorite.

See recipes and all of our contestants and VOTE!
