Over 500 guests enjoyed original Bombay Sapphire cocktails concocted by Atlanta’s top bartenders, while DJ Mike Zarin kept things spinning. A state-of-the-art, video projection mapping installation added to the cutting edge atmosphere. Spotted among the hip crowd: HGTV design star Michael Habachy, famed street artist Greg Mike, Miss United States Jessica Black, Bombay Sapphire Global Brand Ambassador Raj Nagra and Project Runway’s Mychael Knight. The winner of the cocktail shake-down? Clay Livingston of Ocean Prime Restaurant, whose play on a Mai Tai [consisting of orgeat (almond syrup), Orange Liquer, Peychaud’s Bitters, lime juice and grated cassia], won him a berth to compete in the national competition in Las Vegas on September 9.
