Signature Cocktail Contest 1.7: We decided to indulge in the offerings at Victor Social Club during the tasting. We sampled the wagyu beef burger, cheese plate, parmesean fries, house chips and chocolate cake. My favorite, the delicious fruit spreads that accompanied the cheese. The apricot and fig jam was tart with a subtle sweetness that paired well with the hard cheeses. Next visit to Victor Social Club, I’m ordering the oysters.

Signature Cocktail Contest 1.7: The newly renovated Victor Social Club played host to 7th cocktail tasting social of the Signature Cocktail Contest for the Red Party. Mixologist Jeremy Martin created a truly inspiring cocktail he named “Farewell to Arms” All of the cocktails available at Victor Social have Ernest Hemingway themed names. Their cocktail menu mirrors their décor with features several paintings of beautiful Marlins, one of Hemingway’s muses. Jeremy’s cocktail used Lunazul Tequila Blanco and PAMA Liqueur along with fresh juices and topped with Victor Social Club’s house made sorbet. The drink was delightfully sweet with a bright finish compliments to the fresh mint garnish. Bravo Jeremy! The two competition finalist will be announce Monday and compete in a head to head match-up at Victor Social Club on October 14th from 6-9pm. A $10 ticket grants you entry, heavy hors d’oeuvres, two drink tickets and access to the mask auction for the Red Party.

Whiskey Lunch with Heaven Hill Distilleries: The family owned and operated Heaven Hill Distillery showcased their expansive bourbon line during a lunch time lecture last week. The Whiskey Professor, Bernie Lubbers, gave us a funny and informative lesson on the history of bourbon pre-prohibition to present day. Did you know that our nation’s first president, George Washington, sold whiskey; his best client, the United States Calvary. Bourbon has a unique place in American culture and the current mixology movement. Several members of the Charleston Chapter of the United States Bartenders Guild were in attendance to brush up on their whiskey knowledge. The good folks at Poogan’s Porch treated us to lunch in the upstairs dining room serving an assortment of southern fair including fried pimento cheese balls and field peas. The piece de resistance, a 23 year old whiskey. That’s the oldest spirit we have ever tasted! Thanks Heaven Hill!
