Las Vegas bartender Kristian Mihailin took top honors for the Southwest divisional finals in the fall and will now showcase his bottle-wielding and recipe crafting skills for a panel of judges who will crown the champion based on knowledge of the bar, flavor of the drinks and 'flairtending' skills.

Kristian has been practicing his flairtending technique for nine years, and this year will his be fourth year showing off his skills at the World Bartender Championship.
