Tree Line Cocktail (Colorado)

Renée G.


A few years ago, the Colorado Distillers Guild and the Colorado Bartenders Guild (along with co-sponsors Westword and MCA Denver) hosted the Colorado Cocktail Contest. The aim? To get the state's best mixologists to create a signature Centennial State cocktail. The competition was fierce, but Marnie Ward of Denver's Avenue Grill (630 E. 17th Ave.) emerged victorious with the Tree Line, a cocktail that makes use of Leopold Brothers' small batch whiskey and herbal liqueur.
