Just in time for the holidays, a popular liqueur has launched two new flavors reminiscent of those classic holiday deserts that we are all accustom to around this time of the year, Peach Cobbler and Red Velvet! Nuvo, which is most known for it's pink, sparkling liqueur has stepped into the realm of flavored adult beverages, a trend that is quickly catching on, with these two tantalizing additions!

To help give a proper introduction and familiarize local bartenders, club owners, bar owners and members of the media with their delicious new flavors, a Nuvo Industry Party was of course in order!

On this past Monday, The upper level of The Steer Restaurant and Saloon located on Main street in Buffalo, housed tasty finger foods, generous drinks and endless networking opportunities, setting the tone for the most important part of the night, the Mixology Contest! Five bartenders from some of the areas hottest spots including Blush Night Club and Buffalo Live, showed their stuff, competing against one another to whip up their best drink using Nuvo's newest vodka-based flavors in five minutes or less! Who were the lucky judges you might ask? The palates of Yours turly ReddRoxx, alongside Buffalo.com's Ben Tsujimoto and iRock iParty's Sean Adamson were all put to work. We had the difficult yet fun task of tallying each drink based upon five components -- its name, appearance, smell, creativity and of course, its taste.

Ultimately, the Snicker Martini stole the show with first place and the Rowdy Rudolph wasn't far behind with second.  But kudos to all of the bartenders, as all of their concoctions were great enough to be on any drink menu around town!

This was definitely a night to remember and an awesome launch for Nuvo's Red Velvet and Peach Cobbler "deserts" :-).
