Cocktail Wars III Week 3 Recap (Video)

By  |  0 Comments

The tequila was flowing at Newport, RI’s Gas Lamp Grille Monday night.

Monday night was the third week of the preliminary round of the third season of Cocktail Wars.

The Contestants

Jack Hunger – The Revolving Door
Shamus Craft – Malt on Broadway
Alex McCutcheon – The Gas Lamp Grille
Mike Ciejka – The Wharf Pub

The Surprise Liquor


1800 Reposado Tequila


There was a very enthusiastic crowd at the Gas Lamp Grille for the contest, with plenty of people backing their favorite bartender. The more “mainstream” ingredient of a straight tequila gave the contestants a more traditional starting point to craft their cocktails from, as opposed to some of the more off-the-wall liquors that we saw in the first two weeks.

Overall, it was a great experience. Everyone had a great time and we’re looking forward to next week’s final preliminary round to set the roster for the semi-finals.
