Peartini anyone?   Larry Bates of Pearland’s Grazia Italian Kitchen nabbed “best drink” for his handcraftedPeartini at the Yellow Rose Distilling juried competition earlier this spring. Yellow Rose is Houston’s first legal whiskey distillery and quickly emerging on the local scene.

Yellow Rose Distilling held a guest bartender series inviting several Houston area bartenders to produce their finest signature cocktail with a blend of Yellow Rose’s award-winning whiskey as an ingredient. Guests were able to sip and support local non-profits of their favorite mixologist’s choosing.

The eight-week series concluded on May 28 with a juried completion for best drink in the series. Pearland’s own Larry Bates, mixologist at Grazia Italian Kitchen, nabbed bragging rights while supporting his favorite charity – The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Stop by Grazia Italian Kitchen and check out the award-winning Peartini when you’re in Pearland.
