There is no doubt that the Italian Aperitif Aperol showed its mixability as four Southwest Florida Bartenders submitted winning recipes in the 2010 Aperol Mixmaster Challenge. The ‘locals only’ contest received entries from across America and showed the creativity of the bartenders and the versatility of the slightly bitter, but refreshing orange-flavored Aperol Italian Aperitif that is Italy’s #1 selling spirit brand. Winners in three categories split $1000 in total prize money and a fourth winner won a special prize for a recipe using Absolut Vodka. The contest was sponsored by Palm Bay Imports, Southern Wine and Spirits and BeverageUnderground.com

www.myitownTv.com was on-location to record the winning Bartender’s and the Contest Winning Cocktails. Check them out..here and see the videos below!
