Ladies and gentlemen, let the sipping begin! For weeks now, 10 bartenders have tested and tweaked their respective cocktails and now urge you to stop by their establishment starting Monday, Feb. 1 to sample their entry in The “Best American” Cocktail Contest. The contest is being held to toast The Ellsworth American’s 165th birthday this year. The contest ends at midnight Monday, Feb. 29.
To cast your vote, go to The “Best American” Contest’s online poll at www.ellsworthamerican.com starting Feb. 1. To vote, click the little bubble beside your favorite cocktail. The poll will be available through the month of February.
