They are Michael Parish of Miami Beach (The Broken Shaker) and Julio Cabrera of Miami (The Regent Cocktail Club). The two will compete in New York city June 3-4 at the Diageo World Class U.S. finals for the title, which would grant the winner a trip aboard the Azamara Club cruise ship to represent the United States in an international competition of 50 bartenders. These master mixers have five rounds of cocktail standoffs ahead, but here are two recipes you can try at home, from the experts' books.
