Each of the mixologists will be judged by their representation of Tucson’s gastronomical history, use of local ingredients, and incorporation of contemporary bar trends.

You, the guest of honor, are allowed to vote, too. Try them all and then vote to help name the “TCOG Cocktail of the Year,” which comes with a $250 cash prize.

Tickets are $35 per person and include cocktail tastings and hors d’oeuvres from the Carriage House.

The Carriage House is located at 125 S. Arizona Avenue in downtown Tucson. For additional information, visit eventbrite.com.
