And the winner is...

Congratulations to Leah Houghtaling, owner of Felicia’s Atomic Lounge, for placing 3rd in Imbibe’s Metaxa Cocktail Competition. Check out the recipe for her drink, the Greek Awake, at Imbibe’s website.

What is Metaxa anyway?

The Greek spirit Metaxa, invented in 1888, is a combination of brandy and wine derived from three different grape varieties (Savatiano, Sultana, Black Corinth). It’s blended with Muscat wine and then aged in oak casks, before it’s infused with a secret mixture of herbs.

You should also check out this month’s issue of Imbibe, which features a great guide to setting up the ultimate home bar.
