Taste more than 30 margaritas competing to be named the best in town. Cedars Social, Beto and Son in Trinity Groves, Hide in Deep Ellum and Taqueria La Ventana are among the restaurants and bars participating in this annual competition where the bartender who creates the winning drink will be awarded $1,000. The event will start at noon with drinks for sale and live music from Able Delilah, Jes Spires and Phoenix Rose. Tastings of 1-ounce samples will be available starting at 3 p.m.
Competitors will concoct their finest margarita and offer samples from 5-8 p.m. for a margarita competition at the West End in Downtown Dallas. The winner of the Best Margarita in Dallas will be announced at 8:45 p.m.
Sampling tickets include a tasting card allowing samples and votes for favorite margaritas from each participating establishment.
General Admission tickets do not include margarita samplings, they only grant access to the festival area.
