Tales of the Cocktail was the setting for the national final of the USBG Make it Exotico Cocktail Competition! For the past three months, we challenged mixologists from across the United States to make their best cocktail using Exotico Blanco or Reposado Tequila as the base spirit. Winners of the six semifinal events earned their spot to compete in the national final with one competitor earning an educational experience to Jalisco, Mexico, to visit Exotico Tequila’s distillery, Destiladora González González. All cocktails were judged based on appearance, aroma, creativity, taste and overall impression.
In the end, Megan Deschaine of USBG Charleston, came out on top with her delightfully refreshing cocktail, “The Napoleonic Complex.”
Here is Megan's Masterful Creation:
Congratulations to all of our National Finalists!
