Margarita Meltdown May 25th *WIN TWO FREE TICKETS

margaritadog-thumb-250x375by Jennifer Thomas

Celebrity trainer, Jillian Michaels, recently said Dallas should stop drinking so many margaritas. She might as well tell us to stop breathing.

Originally just tequila and lime juice, the margarita dates back to 1924 and didn’t make its way to the United States until Cointreau introduced it in 1962. Dallasites have been making up for lost time ever since. Whether it’s the tried and true margarita, or a newly concocted variation, we’re inviting the best margaritologists to compete to find the best margarita in Dallas at the fourth annual Dallas Margarita Meltdown.   

Created by Tony Fernandez (Espumoso Caffe) and Nico Ponce (Backdrop Bloc Events), the Margarita Meltdown will take place during Memorial Day weekend on Sunday, May 25 from 5-10pm in Dallas’ historic Bishop Arts District.

The best bartenders from thirty-two competing restaurants will compete for a $1000 cash prize and the prestigious title of best margarita in Dallas. Various happy hour events leading up to the Margarita Meltdown, presented by Milagro and Cointreau, will begin in May at participating establishments in Bishop Arts District, Uptown, Knox Henderson, Deep Ellum, Lower Greenville and Downtown.

All attendees will have the opportunity to sample up to 32 margaritas and vote on their favorite one via text message. Over 15,000 people have attended Margarita Meltdown events in Dallas, Ft Worth and San Antonio over the past three years, and over 5,000 are expected to attend this year in Dallas and San Antonio.

Tickets for the event are $30 online. For more information, visit the official website.

To win TWO free tickets to the event, leave your boozy comments below. We will select our winner at random using science, and announce Friday, May 23, 2014.

    Sounds like a good time. While I understand this is about the best margarita & the award…you should also have categories like Cocktail Social (artistic flare) or Mixer Elixir (entertainer).
