Tucson, Ariz—Eric Farmilant, Bar Manager at Tavolino Ristorante Italiano, has won the “Local Champion” award in the 2013 Campari “Best Aperitivo” Cocktail competition. Sponsored by the USBG (United States Bartenders Guild), the competition was held at the Surly Wench Pub on Sunday, August 18th .
Members of the Tucson USBG group participated in a lively competition where all entrants were required to use Campari and other base spirits from the Campari America portfolio in a drink representing the category of Aperitivo (a before-dinner drink designed to stimulate the appetite).
Eric’s “Red Level Sage” cocktail was a perfect blend of Campari, Bianco Vermouth, pomegranate and grapefruit juices, sage and salt. He now advances to the national competition with an all-expense paid trip to the Portland Cocktail Week event in Portland, Oregon, in October. Winner of the national competition will receive a champion’s trophy and $1,000 cash prize.
