Valley bartenders and mixologists are invited to shake up their best margarita recipes and compete in front of a panel of national judges and margarita lovers. For $20, guests can enjoy 10 tastings from their choice of the participants and can vote on their favorites to win.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit Aid for AIDS of Nevada (AFAN). The first place winner will not only receive bragging rights for the best margarita in town, but also $1,000 cash. Additionally, the winner will be featured on Liquor.com as the Best Margarita Mixologist in Las Vegas.
The People’s Choice award will receive a $500 cash prize and third place will receive $250.
In addition to the margarita tasting, guests can enjoy live entertainment, food and drink specials including delicious barbecue and tacos from our winners of the Tacos and Tequila Festival. Sonrisa Grill’s authentic south-of-the-border cuisine focuses on a number of innovative and healthy traditional dishes.
The Margarita Festival is open to the public and the cost is $20 per person for tastings. Tickets will be available for purchase on event day. To register for the competition, please visit www.sonrisagrill.com or call Chanthy Walsh at 702-533-2100.
