Vermont Bartender of the Year shows off skills

SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. A Woodstock native is the 2018 Vermont Bartender of the Year.

Chelsea Harris beat out eight other competitors in Manchester last week to take home the title.

Harris bartends at Pizzeria Verita in Burlington.

She stopped by the WCAX Studio Saturday morning to make a spin-off of a fizz cocktail.

It was a drink that earned her a victory in one of the rounds.

Harris said the judges were looking for flavor, appearance and aroma. She also had to make the perfect cocktail in a timely manner.

Harris won a cash prize for her efforts as well as a golden cocktail stirrer.
