The Park City Area Restaurant Association welcomes the return of its annual summer cocktail contest. It’s open to all bartenders and mixologists of any PCARA establishment, cocktail professionals are invited to submit their most innovative recipes to be included in this year’s contest.
Cocktail professionals who submit their most inventive cocktails will have a chance to win a $500 cash prize, city-wide recognition, will be featured in PCARA marketing efforts following the contest and new this year we are teaming up with The Bar Tender box and will highlight the winning bartender and establishment in a future box.
“It wouldn’t be summer without Park City’s most talented mixologists duking it out for best cocktail,” PCARA executive director Ginger Wicks said. “The cocktail contest is always a fun way to unite the community around some friendly competition and never-before-sipped craft cocktails sure to impress Park City locals and guests.”
Mixologist Trevor Brown from Tupelo has won the contest for the last two years, last summer for his La Vaquera cocktail. The summer favorite included High West Double Rye, Lustau Pedro Ximenez Sherry, house-made hibiscus grenadine, lemon juice, and Bitters Lab habanero lime.
Cocktail contest applications are available at Park City Restaurants for any mixologists interested in entering. Participants must submit their applications by Friday, July 24 to Ginger Wicks, firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail:
