After a phenomenal Red White & Blues Festival in downtown Fredonia this September, a winner of the Best Drink in Fredonia award has been selected. The winner, Liberty Food and Spirits, located at 21 Prospect St. in Fredonia, was presented with a trophy by the Festivals Fredonia Committee for their original drink “Honey, Take My Keys,” featuring locally-distilled spirits from Five & 20 Spirits in Westfield. They will hold the trophy and title for one year, until it goes up for grabs again at the 2018 Red White & Blues Festival.

Listed are the venues that participated: Fredonia Memorial American Legion Post 59, Lil’ Magill’s, EBC West, Tully’s and Coughlan’s Pub. Thanks go out to all of the people who came out to vote for their favorite drink and enjoy the festival’s musical performances.

Congratulations also go out to Nicole May, whose vote was drawn as the winner of a Red White & Blues 2017 T-shirt.
