Cocktail Contest Poster

Sunday-Funday’s Cocktail Contest presented by Dancing Goat Distillery, will feature the talents of 10 of the finest mixologists Lake Geneva has to offer. Their skills will be on display as they compete against each other to mix up the best whiskey cocktail to their abilities, and make their home bars proud! Everyone will be on an even playing field as they will all be using Dancing Goat’s famous Limousine Rye as the base spirit for this contest. The spicy flavor of Limousine Rye is aged in Bourbon Barrels and finished in French Oak from the Limousine Forest in France. This aging process is one of the world’s most expensive cooperages done today. It also creates a perfect base spirit for a bold, extravagant cocktail! We are very much looking forward to seeing what they all come up with. Wee Whiskey Fest attendees will be the judges and be able to vote for their favorite libation. The winning mixologist will receive a prestigious award and mad respect from the Geneva Lakes Whiskey Club!
