Tequila Cazadores is calling on bartenders in its search for the 28 best Margarita recipes. The iconic spirits brand has decided to expand National Margarita Day (February 22) throughout the entire month of February and are declaring it #MargaritaMonth. The goal is to celebrate making it to 2021 with an entire month of indulging in one of the world’s favorite cocktails.
Cazadores wants bartenders to flex their creative cocktail-making muscles and show the world what they’ve got. Tequila Cazadores will be selecting 28 bartenders who submit a unique Margarita recipe that pays homage to the classic Margarita. All recipes must use one of the five Tequila Cazadores expressions, and have to be easy to recreate at home with ingredients that can be found at your local grocery store (though what exactly that means is left somewhat up in the air). Each of the 28 winners will be awarded $1,000.
To join the competition, Bartenders need to signup through the contest’s official web page. You must be over the age of 21 to enter, live in the United States and not currently own any bars or restaurants nor be engaged in a partnership with hospitality or spirits brands. Recipes submitted grant Tequila Cazadores the right to use the cocktail, cocktail recipe and cocktail likeness across digital and social platforms. If selected, Tequila Cazadores will be creatively capturing the cocktail for social and digital promotion across its platforms.
Deadline to submit to the Tequila Cazadores Margarita Month contest is Friday, January 15th 9AM EST.
Back in December, Tequila Cazadores created a variety of cocktails to help celebrate Posadas 2020 style. Las Posadas is a religious festival celebrated in Mexico and some parts of the United States between December 16 and 24. Las Posadas commemorates the journey that Joseph and Mary made from Nazareth to Bethlehem in search of a safe refuge where Mary could give birth.
