Stamford’s maestro mixologists packed their cocktail shakers and headed over to Parallel 41 for the first annual “Stamford’s Best Bartender event.” Michael Laccetti of the Hudson Grille, Sasha Korsupsin of Quattro Pazzi, Greg Pastor of Bar Taco and Josh Lira of Lola’s Mexican Kitchen served up signature drinks for an appreciative (and thirsty) crowd. Michael Laccetti’s Lemon Basil Martini—with just the right amount of sweet and sour—took home the trophy. Try your hand at the recipe for the winning cocktail, plus the other delicious contenders, and you’ll want your next happy hour to never end.
