The Competition

Participating brands are randomly paired with a USBG bartender to create the best cocktail. A panel of judges decides the recipient of the Blue Ribbon Prize. Attendees vote for the People’s Choice.

The prize has varied year to year. In 2017 when Natalie Mauser-Carter won the proverbial blue ribbon it was a trip to Louisville, KY. In 2016 Jarred Craven took the title and the prize was that he got the tuition to take his Society of Wine Educators CSS certification exam. This year we offer our winner three nights stay in San Antonio and attendance fees for three seminars at the 2019 San Antonio Cocktail Conference.
