Bartenders Compete To Make The Best Frozen – Or Not – Concoction
Blended or on the rocks?
Salt or no salt?
Do they play “Margaritaville?”
These are questions that must be asked during the World Margarita Championship, taking place Saturday, Oct. 17, in Tucson, AZ.
It features bartenders coming up with concoctions – frozen or otherwise – before a panel of judges. It is held at the Westward Lock Resort and yes, it’s open to the public.
Tickets are $50 in advance, $60 at the door.
While the event is called the World Margarita Championship, it’s actually a local one. The 20 participating bartenders are all from restaurants and bars in Tucson. So the name is more than slightly misleading.
Still, you can’t fault the concept, a day of mixing up an all-time favorite drink, in a place where margaritas are one of the prime cocktails.
The event is put on by the South Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance also also features margarita tastings, food samplings and a People’s Choice margarita, voted on by those in attendance.
It starts at 6 p.m.
