» Spoke & Steele (123 S. Illinois St., 737-1616) bartender Tyler Burns was the winner of this year’s cocktail competition held at the Beer, Wine & Spirits Trade Show at Lucas Oil Stadium. His winning cocktail, the refreshing and complex “Smoke & Spice,” combines rye, reposado, amaretto, and lime with an autumn-spice simple syrup and apple bitters. Other finalists in the competition, chosen from 15 of Indy’s top mixologists at a preliminary round in September, included Zachary Bowsher of Louie’s Wine Dive (345 Massachusetts Ave., 317-929-1644) mixing up a creamy, sweet “Louie Latte” and Phil Cummings of Iozzo’s Garden of Italy (946 S. Meridian St., 317-974-1100) adding smoked ice to his “Smokey Bandito,” a twist on the smoked Manhattan available at the restaurant.
