TONIGHT many local bars and restaurants are competing for who can make the best cocktail to represent Tampa.
Sounds like a big responsibility and tons of pressure to try and make the drink that tastes like Tampa. How do you even do that? I guess that is why we leave it to the professionals. The event is called “Crafting Tampa’s Cocktail” and it is happening tonight (12/1) 6p.m. to 8p.m. at Winter Village in Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park. I would really love to give these drinks a try. Good thing the socially distant event is open to the public and will require masks.
Below are the list of restaurants competing for the title:
- 7th + Grove
- Anchor & Brine
- Armature Works (Bar AW)
- The Big Easy Bar
- District Tavern
- First Chance Last Chance
- The Hub
- Jackson’s Bistro
- Remedy/Malio’s Prime Steakhouse
- Sail Plaza
- White Lie
I’m thinking this drink is going to have rum and citrus fruit flavors and maybe paired with a local beer. I guess we will have to wait and see…
✨TONIGHT! ✨Join us virtually for a sparkling event as we name Tampa's official cocktail! Local mixologists will compete in Crafting Tampa's Cocktail to capture the essence of Tampa flavor.????— City of Tampa (@CityofTampa) December 1, 2020
