You have until March 9th to be in with a chance of making it to the live finals!
Last year, Jose Cuervo caused a stir across the country, by challenging bartenders to battle it out for the prestigious title of 'Ireland's Best Margarita'. Now, the competition is back – as the global tequila leaders once again send out the call, asking the country's leading mixologists to conjure up the most exciting margarita in the country.
By definition, a margarita consists of tequila, citrus and sweetener – aside from that, the only limit is your imagination! This year, entries will be judged online, with extra points for keeping sustainability and the latest cocktail trends in mind.
The geniuses responsible for creating the most impressive margarita recipes in that context will be invited to compete at a special live final in Dublin on March 24th, in front of a panel of expert judges.
And the best part? As well as being awarded the coveted title of Cuervo's Best Margarita in Ireland, the champion will also win an unforgettable trip to the home of Jose Cuervo in Tequila, Mexico.
During the trip, the winner will get a chance to go behind-the-scenes of the production process of Jose Cuervo, from exploring the agave fields to looking closely at the distillation and maturation processes. They'll also be invited into the private family cellar – the only place in the world where Jose Cuervo Reserva de la Familia is finished – and will get to savour a dram of that extraordinary elixir straight from the barrel.
Last year's winner was Siobhán Darker, representing Nolita, with her Dublin Meets Mexico creation. Revisit the 2019 live final here.
