Spirited Awards 2017 Accepting Nominations

Nomination deadline: April 30th, 2017

BarLifeUK News - Spirited Awards 2017 Accepting NominationsThis being the eighth consecutive year of my writing this story, the ‘amusing and slightly edgy introductory paragraph’ cup has run dry. Mind you, it looks as if Tales’ own copywriter is similarly uninspired:

In 2017, we’re taking Tales of the Cocktail beyond the stratosphere at the 11th Annual Spirited Awards. The show might be here on Earth at the Sheraton New Orleans, but the celestial inspired cocktails served will be otherworldly as we hand out awards for the best bars, bartenders, distillers, ambassadors and writers from around the world (and beyond?)

Blergh. Anyway, you know the drill. Bars, books, people, websites, etc. Nominate your favourite here: The 2017 Spirited Awards.
