Bacardi National Legacy of the Cocktail Showcase: May the Best Mixologist Win

The 2012 Bacardi National Legacy of the Cocktail Showcase will take place at La Côte in Miami Beach on Tuesday, January 17, 2012 from 7-10 p.m. During the affair, guests will be served savory cocktails and Cuban-inspired meals, paired with lively music and entertainment.

The event will feature bartender finalists from New York, Los Angeles, Boston and Miami who will be competing in hopes to have their drinks join the ranks of legendary Bacardi cocktails like the Bacardi Daiquiri and the Mojito.

A panel of judges will be watching and critiquing the competitors on skills, presentation, aroma, flavor and balance, ingenuity and innovation, as well as history and inspiration behind the cocktail.
The winner of the contest will represent the United States at the World Finals in Puerto Rico in February 2012.
