The 2023 Tucson Cocktail Challenge has returned for another round and will take place from 5:30 - 9 p.m. on Thursday, October 5 at St. Philip's Plaza, 4280 N. Campbell Ave.
In the biggest edition yet of this popular annual showdown, eight top mixologists from Tucson City of Gastronomy Certified Restaurants will compete for their specially created craft cocktail to win the title "Tucson Cocktail of the Year." Perhaps the best part is that voting will be conducted by all who are attending the event.
In addition to tastings of the finalist cocktails, the evening will include hors d'oeuvres and live DJs.
Tickets are $75 per person and include cocktail samples, small bites, and live entertainment. Also, if you're a Tucson Foodie Insider, look for the $10 discount in the Tucson Foodie App as well as an email with a promo code.
The event is a fundraiser for the nonprofit Tucson City of Gastronomy managing the designation.
The Tucson Cocktail Challenge will be held at St. Philip's Plaza, 4280 N. Campbell Ave. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit eventbrite.com.
