Most Creative
Margarita Contest

Get those taste-buds ready!

A team of hand-selected judges will see which competing restaurant or bar has what it takes to be crowned either the Most Creative Margarita, or the Critic’s Choice Best Margarita! This is a hard decision to make, but someone has to do it – and we’re confident that these three are up for the challenge! The final category in the competition is the People’s Choice Best Margarita, the overall fan-favorite. When entering the event, guests will receive a seashell to place in the pail of their favorite restaurant or bar’s margarita.
