Another alcohol achievement that should have Nashville chuffed revolves around Patrón Tequila’s global Perfectionists Competition, wherein mixologists from around the world showcase their skills by creating cocktails using the premium tequila. One of the 16 global finalists is one of our own, Logan Demmy of The Fox Bar & Cocktail Club in East Nashville. Demmy has plenty of international experience, formerly working behind the stick as head bartender at the world-renowned 28 Hongkong St in Singapore, along with stints in New Zealand and Columbus, Ohio. Demmy is among the 16 finalists invited to visit Hacienda Patrón in Jalisco, Mexico, where they’ll undertake challenges in front of a notable panel of judges including LP O’Brien, winner of Netflix’s Drink Masters. The cocktail that Demmy will attempt to impress the judges with is a creation called the Super Malo Fabulous, a concoction featuring Patrón Silver, vermouth, Madeira, Champagne and his secret weapon, an oleo-saccharum made using Nashville hot chicken spice. The winner will be announced on March 29, so think good thoughts for our local hero!
