The Park City Area Restaurant Association (PCARA) has announced the winners of this year's Savor the Cocktail Contest.

Mixologist Julio Chavarria, from High West Saloon, won for "best cocktail" with his Sweet Agony cocktail.

And the contest's first-ever mocktail winner was Zack Rhoades from Après Pendry. His recipe for Midsomer mocktail came out on top.
