What: Yellow Rose Distilling's "Thur Mix-A-Lot" finale  in guest bartender series.

Where: Yellow Rose Distilling, Houston's first legal whiskey distillery, on North Post Oak.

The 411: The Houston Young Lawyers Association and the South Asian Bar Association joined together at the last of the eight-week fundraising endeavor benefiting eight local charities.

Mixologists each showcased a signature cocktail incorporating Yellow Rose whiskeys and bourbons for the jury of young professionals, whose final verdict declared Larry Bates of Grazia Italian Kitchen guilty of making the best of the lot. However, after lengthy deliberation judges, including Jodie Eisenhardt and Erin Hicks, tapped Peter Clifton of Radio Milano as their choice.

Who: Anita Barksdale, Travis Buchanan, Will Richardson, Betsy Stukes, Kacy Shindler, Ben Ruemke, Avani Gossai, Randeep Hira, Michael McMullin, Triniti’s Akiko Dulaney, Etoile’s Kimberly Paul and Onion Creek’s Rachel Hitteman.
