Hot Chocolate Bartender Up for National Mixology Contest

A few weeks ago, some of Chicago's top mixologists headed to Florida to compete in a Barcardi competition and now another one of our own is heading south to compete for another prize. Hot Chocolate's Luke LeFiles will compete in the 4 Orange Premium Vodka Classic Cocktail Competition during the South Beach Food & Wine Festival on Feb. 25.

LeFiles, a North Carolina native, will mix up his 4 Effervescence cocktail, which he says is a loose interpretation of the classic French 75. In addition to the vodka, the drink incorporates gin, fresh-squeezed Meyer lemon juice, chamomile tea syrup, sparkling Beaujolais and Bitter cube Bolivar. LeFiles will compete against nine other bartenders from across the country for a $3,000 prize. Good luck!
