Cocktail Shake Up

Published in Events

A Cocktail Contest and Tasting Event in one!



CONTESTANTS will have 3 minutes to showcase their bartending flair as they prepare their unique cocktail creations for our panel of judges and a room full of fans. In the spirit of the hit show "Chopped," judges will share their feedback and choose the ultimate winner whose cocktail will be featured exclusively on the Reds Cocktail Menu for December 2022. PRIZES will also be awarded for Fan Favorites in taste, presentation, and overall flair.

  • Contestants apply via online application:https://forms.gle/ebvxJ1jVQzVgZ2R68
  • Contestants must utilize one of three featured spirits (Grey Goose Vodka, Hendricks Gin, or Great Jones Bourbon) in their signature cocktail, and may include other additional spirits if they are currently available at Reds (list provided when applying).
  • Reds will provide all the spirits required to prepare the cocktails on event day, along with some mixers and garnishes if pre-arranged and a part of our normal inventory.
  • Contestants are asked to incorporate a December/holiday theme into their cocktail since that is when the cocktail will be featured.
  • The LIVE event is limited to 10 contestants, so applications will be reviewed by a panel of judges and their top ten will be invited to compete in the LIVE event.
  • Deadline for contestants to submit their application is 5pm on October 30th. The top ten contestants chosen to compete in the LIVE event on Nov. 10th will be notified by 11/1/22.

ATTENDEES will enjoy an array of Reds hors d'oeuvres while cheering on each of the contestants and sampling each of the cocktails presented. DJ Bill Hardy will be on hand to add some musical flair and to emcee the event. Our panel of judges will include local celebrity chef and two time “Chopped” winner, Ric Orlando, along with at least two other qualified cocktail aficionados. Attendees will vote for their favorites in three categories. Must be 21 yrs. or older to attend.

  • Attendee tickets available online or by calling the restaurant directly 518-731-8151.
  • Ticket Price is $30 (plus tax & gratuity = $37.80) per person.

Catholic Charities of Columbia and Greene Counties

Wednesday November 16th

For 45 years, Catholic Charities of Columbia and Greene Counties has been providing essential services to the residents of Columbia and Greene Counties, with Emergency Assistance at the core of programming to serve the poor and vulnerable, regardless of race, religion, or lifestyle.

Just a few of the ways Catholic Charities is supporting our neighbors in need…

  • Providing transportation for clients in need of a safe way to work or medical appointments.
  • Helping to prevent substance abuse with programs to help children make healthy choices.
  • Feeding neighbors by stocking local food pantries and assisting older adults in receiving food benefits.
  • Assisting women with nutrition counseling and breast-feeding assistance, giving kids a healthy start.

In 2021, Catholic Charities provided much needed assistance to over 8,000 people in Columbia and Greene Counties.

Reds is super excited to be supporting this organization again this year! We hope you’ll join us on November 16th knowing that 10% of your dining purchase will be donated to furthering the mission and works of this local organization. Together we can make a meaningful impact on the lives of those in our community.
