Our own cocktail columnist, friend, and bartendress extraordinaire Lindsay Nader is up for the wild card slot in this year’s Speed Rack competition, but she needs your votes to get there. Speed Rack puts the country’s top female bartenders head-to-head in round robin style timed and judged cocktail challenges, making it the first competition to highlight up and coming women in the spirits industry. Girl power! (Wait, is that still a thing?)
Nader, who writes Los Angeles magazine’s "Hey Barkeep" column and can be found mixing drinks at the Houston brothers’ new Pour Vous bar starting this weekend, is competing for a wild card slot in the finals, which take place this May in New York City. The grand prize winner will be crowned Miss Speed Rack USA and receive a pretty sash—oh, no, even better—they receive an all inclusive trip for two to France (score!). Aside from her new fancy Hollywood gig, Nader hlped design the beverage program at Son of A Gun and mixed drinks at Harvard & Stone.
