Current Cocktail Competitions
PATRÓN Perfectionists cocktail competition opens up for 2023 entries, bringing a new bartender education and engagement program to the heart of this year’s edition! While exciting new layers have been added to accompany participants on their journey to perfection, the core entry of the program still asks bartenders to create a recipe reflecting their homes and the unwavering commitment to quality that goes into every drop of PATRÓN tequila. The entry challenge, called Hometown Hero, will require entrants to develop a cocktail that blends PATRÓN Silver tequila with the bartender’s local culture, using ingredients from a prescribed list. – Initial entries will be judged on appeal, appearance, inspiration, and originality. Entries for the PATRÓN Perfectionists cocktail competition are open until Oct. 7, 2022, and can be submitted via the entry portal. National finalists will be announced by mid-October, and receive guidance on the upcoming national final events from the local Brand Ambassadors.
