Manhattan Experience at the Kentucky Derby Museum

| December 15, 2011

Louisville’s best bartenders contended for the title of “Best Manhattan” on Dec. 6 at the Kentucky Derby Museum.

Sponsored by Woodford Reserve and Esquire Magazine – and emceed by The Voice-Tribune’s Angie Fenton – the Manhattan Experience brought out the best mixologists around.

The winner, Karla Ramsey, won over the judges with her Ramsey’s Manhattan, a cocktail she made with bourbon, apple brandy, sweet vermouth, bitters and garnished with an apple slice and cinnamon stick. Karla will take her talents to the Big Apple in early January to represent the Bluegrass State and compete against bartenders from around the country.
