The last four weeks were filled with sips, samples and second rounds as Park City locals and visitors imbibed at two dozen participating restaurants and cast their votes for the community’s best summer cocktail.
“We saw so many inventive summer themes in this year’s cocktails, and we couldn’t be more grateful to all the mixologists and drink enthusiasts who participated,” said PCARA executive director Ginger Wicks. “Huge congratulations to Trevor Brown for earning the coveted crown for the second year in a row!”  
tupelo’s Brown took top honors for his La Vaquera cocktail. This year’s seasonal favorite mixes High West’s Double Rye whiskey, sherry, hibiscus grenadine, lemon juice and habanero lime bitters.
