To commemorate the inaugural performance of Verdi’s Macbeth, the Met Opera hosted its third annual “Mixology Contest." In honor of the production, six renowned NYC mixologists were tasked with creating the most sui generis concoction in tribute to Macbeth. Rife full of murder, magic, and mysterious “witches’ brews," the bar was set for the creation of some liquid excellence!
Prior to the actual contest, guests were treated to the night’s potent complimentary cocktail, simply entitled “The Opera Cocktail." Belying its non-descript moniker, this concoction touted substantial muscle via the “Navy Strength” 114 proof Gin nestled within. Suffice to say, buzzes were plentiful!
