This post is a part of a series that will profile participants in the Hiram Walker Gingerbread Cocktail Competition and their drink entries. The winner of the contest will be announced the week of Thanksgiving.
Lance Mayhew, a founding member of the Oregon Bartender’s Guild, describes himself as a “corporate drone by day, bartender by night,” and blogs about his love of cocktail culture on My Life on the Rocks. From Portland, Lance writes about his favorite cocktail books, new craft cocktail creations, product reviews, and stories from behind the stick at 50 Plates. He’s a great mixologist who’s passionate about his work so check out his site for some great insight into the biz.
November Rain, Lance’s entry into the Hiram Walker Gingerbread Cocktail Competition was the very first submission I received. It’s simple, straightforward, and features the great pairing of rye & Gingerbread. Give it a try!
