RETURN of The MARGARITA Standoff! In honor of National Margarita Day, US Bartender’s Guild DC Chapter and Marketing Intelligence Agency present the 2nd Annual Margarita Standoff. The “Best Rita-Slinger” bragging rights are on the line for the margarita that proves to be the crowd favorite! Bartender vs. Bartender - Tequila vs. Mezcal…will Al Thompson (Minibar), last year’s Champion retain his title or will a new champion emerge from the Standoff as the Best Rita-Slinger in DC!
This is a craft margarita cocktail competition between six to eight bartenders who have a choice of Tequila or Mezcal as their base spirit. All supporting ingredients will be provided at the mixology station for bartenders to select at their discretion. The competition is judged by popular vote!
