This just in across the ole' PR flakwire: Dallas bartender Sean Conner has won the local finals of the Bombay Sapphire- and GQ-sponsored "2011 Nation's Most Inspired Bartender Search" with an inspirational pour of an inspirational drink he inspirationally calls the "Wabbit Smash." If you're looking to match him at home, and based on this list of ingredients, Eater Dallas thinks maybe leave it to the professionals, the recipe is: Bombay Sapphire gin, ginger-infused local honey, mint, fresh lemon and baby carrot juices.
Though the competition was held Monday night at the Candleroom, Conner's the barman at Whiskey Cake Kitchen and Bar, where they serve "tasty farm-to-kitchen dishes and cocktails" whipped up in their "from-scratch-only" kitchen. According to the Whiskey Cake Facebook page, Connor will next head to "Vegas, baby," where he'll get to be on the cover of GQ if he wins the final round.
