Pirate Sips

Exhibition Hall

12pm to 4pm - Saturday, May 3rd


Think your bar makes good drinks? Join us for Pirate Sips, a celebration of good cocktails. Make a sip of your favorite Rum, Vodka, or Whiskey/Bourbon cocktail. People with tickets will then taste your creation as well as concoctions from all of the other bars competing. A panel of judges will decide the best “Pirate Sip” from each category to name the best Rum, Vodka, or Bourbon/Whiskey cocktail (only 1 category per bar). The winning bar in each category will get a “Guilded” bottle created by Candace Alexander to display in their bar. There will also be a “people’s choice” Award for the best overall cocktail. So come up with your best concoction and join us at “Pirate Sips”
