Last year, I went to my first Made with Love competition here and I have to say that we have some stellar bartenders in the city! There were so many creative cocktails that it was so hard to choose one to vote for. Last year, I voted for Chelsea Rose Schlute from Torafuku and her Painters Brush and she went on to win Public’s Choice!

I’d have to say that Made With Love was one of the highlights of last year for me, in terms of events. There is delicious cocktails, good food and you get to talk with Vancouver’s most creative bartenders.

Here are this year’s participating bartenders:

Peter Johanson – Bar Oso
Dylan Robert Williams – Westin Bayshore
Chelsea Rose Schulte – Cocktails & Canapes Catering + Events
Elson Cheng – Anh and Chi
David Bulters – Juniper Kitchen and Bar
Rob Hoover – The Union
Angela Lai – Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar
Micah Dew – Gateway Casinos
Tiffanie Marie Palmer – The Pawnshop YVR
Daniel O’Hearn – Reflections
