The call for the best black bartender in the country went out in late June/early July. They were looking in 16 different cities for the best of each city to submit a cocktail that represented their city as well as their mixing skills using Maker’s Mark bourbon.
Shots by Miko answered the call the represent our home base of Kansas City, Mo. Our owner submitted a cocktail named Hot Stone Massage to represent the calmness of KC along with the spiciness we embody.
