We toasted the top restaurants in town and the release of our annual Crave 10 issue with an intimate gathering at The Worthington Inn-this year's pick for the No. 8 restaurant. In the old-school charm of Worthington Inn's upstairs event room, readers enjoyed delicious hors d'oeuvres crafted by chef Thomas Smith, live music and drinks, including a specialty cocktail-Chembery Spritz-made by Middle West Spirits just for our party.

Chembery Spritz

1 ounce OYO Stone Fruit Vodka

1 ounce Dolin Sweet Blanc Vermouth

1 ounce fresh orange juice

Build all ingredients in a Collins glass, add ice and top with quality lemon-lime soda.

Garnish with an orange slice.
