Go here and vote for your favorite cocktails in the Farm to Glass Cocktail Contest—you only have two more days to vote.
Then go here and buy early-bird tickets to the Farm to Glass Cocktail Party where we’ll announce the winners and you’ll get to taste the contenders and vote again on Drink of the Night.
Meanwhile, if you haven’t tried the competing cocktail at Zest, you better give it a sip. We went by the other night and ordered The Last Dance—you can find the recipe and see a video of how to make it here. It’s a mix of:
- High West double rye
- Local ginger
- Mountain Town balsamic
- Local cucumbers
- Bitters Lab aromatic bitters
- Soda water
It’s delicious, refreshing and revivifying. By the way, carnivores, don’t eschew Zest because of its vegan/vegetarian focus. If you are a vegger, this is some of the best you can eat in SLC. But if you’re not (like me) you’ll still love the pizza (although I ordered mine with cheddar, not cashew, cheese) and the zuke and cheese (like mac and cheese, but with zucchini instead of pasta. I mean, yum.
And that’s from a person who, the first time she ate at an all-vegan restaurant, went immediately back to her hotel room and scoured through her luggage to find enough change for two packs of peanut M&Ms. You know, for a protein supplement.
