Article 14 is already known for its good food and great ambiance, and now their beverage manager and resident mixologist, Arianne Fielder is bringing the Midtown restaurant even more attention by being named the regional semi-finalist for the Woodford Reserve Manhattan experience bartender exhibition program.

According to written press release, she beat out 14 other competitors at Tongue & Groove on Monday, November 4 for this coveted position in the finals taking place in New York City on January 13, 2014.

Arianne Fielder beat out her regional competition with something she calls a “Kentucky Sundress.”  Fielder says, “I wanted to create a Manhattan variation that would cater to the female palate. My personal goal has been to covert more women into whiskey drinkers and that was my direction with the drink. During my recent visit to bourbon country, I noticed that the standard attire for women at the distilleries was a sundress and cowboy boots. I loved it. So classic, southern and feminine. For my drink, I wanted to bring out the feminine and pretty qualities of the bourbon. The cocktail has strawberry and rosemary infused vermouth blanc, orange bitters, elderflower liqueur, a green chartreuse rinse and is garnished with a rose I made with a strawberry.”

Sounds awesome and something I am sure the guys could have a taste for too!
