Tahini Surprise - Gran Sierpe Pisco CocktailOn June 28th, 12 Miami bartenders competed in Gran Sierpe Pisco’s “Iron Chef” mixology competition.  Contestants were tasked with creating signature Gran Sierpe cocktails using secret ingredients, which ranged from ponzu sauce to chocolate bacon to garlic.  The end result was some weirdly creative cocktails, with DJ Love of Mercadito’s coming out on top.

    FYI – The Canton drink was spectacular. Huge fan, obviously – more drinks with Canton should be made. Thanks for the great recipe!
