Stamford’s master mixologists packed up their cocktail shakers and headed over to Parallel 41 for the inaugural Stamford’s Best Bartender event. The luxury apartment building transformed its residents' lounge into a happening hub of nightlife. Michael Laccetti of the Hudson Grille, Sasha Korsupsin of Quattro Pazzi, Greg Pastor of Bartaco and Josh Lira of Lola’s Mexican Kitchen served up signature drinks for an appreciative (and thirsty) crowd. Each restaurant also served up tasty samplings of their menus. Randy Salvatore of RMS Companies, Karen Kelly of Moffly Media’s Stamford magazine and Cheryl Farley of TRIO Properties served as the evening’s judges. Michael Laccetti took home the trophy for his Lemon Basil Martini, a perfect summer cocktail with just the right amount of sweet and sour. —Nathan Tavares
