Highball 2018

Modern Luxury Staff | February 22, 2018 | Parties

A crowd of 350 revelers raised their glasses for a top-shelf cause at the High Museum of Art’s Feb. 10 Highball fundraiser. At the 2nd annual event, Atlanta’s best bartenders competed in a head-to-head craft cocktail competition where guests could vote for their favorite creations while enjoying music by DJ Teknology and light bites by Sterling Spoon catering. Randy Hayden from Nine Mile Station took home first place for his delicious gin libation, the Garden Gimlet, a fusion of the culinary and cocktail arts. Second place honors went to Jessica Smith of Urban Tree Cidery for her cocktail inspired by Marvel’s Black Panther, and guests selected Seven Lamps bartender Vincent Dugan’s sweet, spicy and refreshing cocktail for third place.
