2022 September – October

We asked 15 of the best craft-cocktail experts in the city to fix us a drink, and they came to the table with cocktails crafted from bright, summery ingredients. For the month of September (and into mid-October), we invite the public to visit their bars, try these cocktails and help us choose the best cocktail of the season by voting at saltlakemagazine.com.
