Mardi Gras Meltdown Chilled Mochachino

In the fine tradition of last October's wildly successful Scotch Night, the Nova Scotia Liquor Commission is outdoing itself again:
Trade in your apron for some stylish new threads, the mixing bowl for a cocktail shaker and the spice rack for a well stocked bar and join the NSLC at Halifax’s Casino Hotel Ballroom February 23rd for a Cocktail Event you won’t want to miss.

The atmosphere promises to be electric, with a number of Nova Scotia’s own master mixologists on hand to perform in a ‘spirited’ competition, to see who blends the best drink in the province. And you won’t have to rely on the judges’ scorecards for the results, as you will be able to sample an array of cocktails over the course of the evening.
Full menu of cocktail recipes for the evening here, including the above mentioned Mardi Meltdown (1 oz. Mozart Chocolate Liqueur, 1 oz. Dooley’s Toffee Liqueur, 1 oz. Whaler’s Vanilla Rum, ¼ cup of Chilled Coffee, ¼ cup Blend).

At $45 for the opportunity to sample them all over the course of 3 hours, the price is right. Here's a humble short list of 5 particular soon-to-be delights:
1. Lynchberg Lemonade
1 oz. Jack Daniel’s Whiskey, 1 oz. Triple Sec Liqueur, Sweet & Sour Mix, 4 oz. Sprite

2. The Crowning Glory
