Mason’s Grill’s Blackberry Mojito wins Garden Fest at Burden cocktail contest

Mason’s Grill did it again — took the top prize at the cocktail recipe contest at the annual Garden Fest at Burden.

The Baton Rouge restaurant at 13556 Jefferson Highway on Saturday won the Louisiana rum recipe contest with its Blackberry Mojito concoction.

Mason’s Grill was the winner in the event’s 2012 Bloody Mary contest.

Tying for second place were The Cove and Olive or Twist. Third, also a tie, went to Serranos Salsa Co. and Doe’s Eat Place. All are located in Baton Rouge.

Visitors to the Garden Fest at Burden got a chance to sample the cocktails, plus dishes prepared with vegetables produced at the LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens at Burden in Baton Rouge.

Here are recipes for some of the dishes and cocktails that were available at the annual event.
