What is the Sip Series, you may ask? It is a creative cocktail series where Yelp Phoenix and Genuine Concepts partnered to host one event per month featuring leading spirits including EFFEN Vodka, Toki, Hibiki, and Maker’s Mark. This series celebrated talented local mixologists from some of the best boutique bars in the Valley. The lineup included Cobra Arcade Bar, The Womack, The Little Woody, and Linger Longer Lounge. At each event, Yelpers got to mingle with 3 resident Mixologists while sampling their one-of-a-kind craft cocktails using a different spirit at each venue. The 3 cocktails were created specifically for each event. Elites were then tasked with the difficult challenge of choosing their favorite cocktail of the 3 by using their sacred voting token! Every vote counts! The talented mastermind behind the winning cocktail at each venue won great prizes and not to mention, epic bragging rights. The best part? All events happened to fall on Thirsty Thursday! Yelpers were encouraged to invite their friends after each event for cocktail samples and specials all night long!

Our Sip Series would not have been possible without our valuable partnership with Genuine Concepts and the leading spirits within the Beam Suntory portfolio. Thank you to each and every venue and most importantly, to all participating Mixologists for their mad cocktail making skills. Every single cocktail was a winner in our book! Everyone involved went above and beyond for Valley Yelpers and for that, we’re truly grateful. Relive this 5-star series by reading the reviews from each event (Cobra Arcade Bar, The Womack, The Little Woody, Linger Longer Lounge) and viewing the photos (Cobra Arcade Bar, The Womack, The Little Woody). Our Yelptern, Connor G. also created these fun videos (Cobra Arcade Bar, The Womack, The Little Woody). A BIG thank you to Eric Castanos for capturing the good vibes throughout the series, and to Yelptern Connor G. for the amazing video footage. Stay tuned for more to come from the Yelp Phoenix Sip Series in 2018!
