YOU BE THE JUDGE. WHICH OF DC'S TOP MIXOLOGISTS MAKE THE BEST RUM DRINKS?
Join us at Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar DC for an evening of cocktails, food, live entertainment by Latin band Quimbao and friendly competition among some of the DC area’s most talented mixologists and rising stars. Tickets include: all competing cocktails, plus food and non-alcoholic beverages. Cuba Libre classics like Mama Amelia's Empanadas, Arroz con Pollo, Spinach and Manchego Bunuelos and Octopus a La Parilla will be served, among many others.
Each mixologist will be asked to create a cocktail using one specific brand of rum from the following categories: white, añejo, spiced, flavored, 100% sugar cane, and dark. The resulting concoctions will be judged by an expert panel and event attendees will have a chance to cast a popular vote after tasting each of the competing cocktails.
Proceeds from the event will benefit CORE (Children of Restaurant Employees), a national 501©3 charity whose mission is to support the children of food and beverage employees who are navigating life-altering circumstances or conditions.
