Article 14's Arianne Fielder Wins Atlanta Woodford Reserve Manhattan Contest

Arianne Fielder has that knack. Last year, Fielder placed second, and this year the Article 14 mixtress won top honors in the Manhattan Experience bartender regional exhibition sponsored by Woodford Reserve craft bourbon and Esquire magazine. Her winning cocktail, the "Kentucky Sundress" had strawberry- and rosemary-infused vermouth blanc, orange bitters, elderflower liqueur, a green chartreuse rinse and a strawberry rose garnish. This all-star libation achieved Fielder's goal of creating a variation of the Manhattan that caters to the female palate. She heads off to NYC in January 2014 to compete in the national finale! Go Arianne!
