Texas' top female bartenders will be pouring straight and fast in Deep Ellum in January to take part in Dallas' first-ever Speed Rack competition—a global all-female speed-bartending tournament that raises money for breast cancer charities.

On January 14 at the Life in Deep Ellum Cultural Center, bartenders will compete in timed heats to complete rounds of cocktails from a list of 50 classic recipes, and they'll be judged on their speed and accuracy with the winner being crowned Miss Speed Rack Dallas and invited to compete in the national finals in New York in June.

The lady pourers hail from all over the state, but North Texas bars will be well represented with  Simone Elizabeth Springer, Haydee Hernandez and Kiyoko Kinoshita from Midnight Rambler; Alexis Rolon from The Rustic; Nicole Marie DeGroot and Jenna De Long from Whiskey Cake in Plano;  Jennifer Land from Urban Crust in Plano; and Kristy Drapiza, Ashley Nicole Helstrom and Alexandrea Rivera from The Ranch at Las Colinas.
