Pickled! Preservation Libations fundraiser is Friday

Drinks of the roaring ’20s will be bottoms up as Preserve Arkansas hosts its second annual Preservation Libations Master Mix-Off starting at 6 p.m. Friday, July 22, in the Albert Pike Masonic Temple. Set in the auditorium of the grand 1924 structure, guests will imbibe and vote on competing bartenders’ twists on historic cocktails, all of them delightfully quirky and plenty stiff.

Mixologists Summer Blake of Boulevard Bistro, Dillon Garcia of the Pizzeria at Terry’s Finer Foods, Merrick Fagan of Trio’s, Sarah Harrington of South on Main, Rob Armstrong of the Fold and Alejandro Fierro of Cache will develop their own high-octane potables with such ingredients as rhubarb tea, various bitters and infused vodkas.

Persons who attended last year’s fundraiser will recall — maybe — Luiggi Uzcategui’s “Bristol Fashion,” made of 12-year-old rum, a Netherlandish sugar cane spirit, curacao, mescal, chocolate bitters, angostura bitters, orange blossom water, coconut sugar syrup, orange juice and lime juice. That’s the kind of alcoholic shenanigans you can expect at the event; imagine being a judge.

Tickets are $50; for $75 you get a tour of the Masonic temple thrown in. There is a $5 discount for members of Preserve Arkansas. Two votes come with each ticket, but $2 will buy you another vote. For more information, call 372-4757 or go to Preserve Arkansas on Facebook.
