Photos From The 100 Proof Project

Posted By on Thu, Jan 19, 2012 at 3:52 PM

Last night we had a special event at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, the culmination of a collaboration with Southern Comfort called the 100 Proof Project. We had an open call for 4 mixologists and 10 artists working in Brooklyn to submit drinks and artwork inspired by Southern Comfort 100 Proof.

The resulting art and cocktails were showcased at a free event at the Knitting Factory, where people could take in the competing beverages and art, and see the winners announced -- and to boot, there was a live performance from Radical Dads and free food from Mexicue.

The winning artist, John P. Dessereau, won $1000 and a hand-painted Southern Comfort billboard with his art at N 11th and Wythe, as well as a profile in Brooklyn Magazine. St. John Frizell, the winning mixologist, won a trip for two to New Orleans, the home of Southern Comfort, for his winning "Southern Comfort Gimlet Royale."

Congratulations to the winners, and thanks to all the artists and mixologists who competed. Big thanks also go to the Knitting Factory, Mexicue, Radical Dads and the Knitting Factory for hosting the event last night! Photos by Bex Wade.
