They win, you win. Try drinks from the best bars in America on Sunday, October 10 at Tavern Law.

Here’s why we love Seattle bars: They love each other.

To toast their inclusion on GQ’s new list of top 25 cocktail bars in America, Tavern Law and Zig Zag are throwing a party together.

This party takes place at T-Law on Sunday, October 10 starting at 7pm, and the concept is cool: Bartenders (Zig Zag’s Murray Stenson and Ben Perri will mix alongside the house tenders) are making featured cocktails from the 25 bars on the magazine’s list.

I snuck a peek at the drinks menu; it’s being created even as I write this. For context: Zig Zag was the number one bar on GQ’s list and Tavern law was 25. And the seven drinks I’ve listed below correspond to those bars ranked numbers 2 through 7.

Evidence (Angel’s Share, New York) Earl Grey, vodka, ginger beer, lemon.

Whiskey Smash (The Violet Hour, Chicago)
Wild Turkey 101, lemon, mint, Peychaud’s bitters.

Astoria (Clover Club, Brooklyn)
Old tom gin, dry vermouth, orange bitters.

The Evergreen (The Alembic, San Francisco)
Pikesville Rye, Zirbenz Stone Pine liqueur, mint.

Kingston Negroni (Death + Company, NYC)
Jamaican Rum, campari, Carpano Antica.

La Louche (PDT, NYC)
Hendricks Gin, Lillet Rouge, Yellow Chartreuse, lime.
