At Tales of the Cocktail, Diageo World Class held their highly anticipated annual Happy Hour at Gallier Hall to celebrate the second year of World Class in the United States. Ricky Gomez, the first ever World Class U.S. Ambassador and Jeff Bell, this year’s U.S. Bartender of the Year and runner-up for the Diageo World Class Global title made cocktails using the Reserve Portfolio (Bulleit Bourbon, Ciroc, Tequila Don Julio, Johnnie Walker, Ketel One, Tanqueray and Zacapa). Jeff and Ricky mixed alongside 31 of the nation's top mixologists including World Class luminaries Steve Olson and Julie Reiner. Each bartender used the Mediterranean-themed Global Final for his/her cocktail recipe inspiration.
