  • Entrants may use any mixers/other liquors/cordials they’d like but NO VODKA OTHER THAN TAHOE BLUE VODKA.
  • RAD Radio will review all recipes submitted. An initial elimination round will be based solely on RAD’s agreed-upon team discretion of which recipes sound most appealing and/or intriguing.
  • RAD radio will then make those deemed interesting enough and sample them, ultimately narrowing it down to five finalists, who will compete against one another on 1/26/19 at Halftime Bar and Grill.
  • Recipes do not need to be original. If you think you have the secret to a better mule, submit it! Or, if you’ve created the ultimate Tahoe Blue Cocktail from scratch, send that as well! All comers welcome (giggity)
  • Finalists must be able to attend on 1/26 to coach their partnered bartender from Halftime bar & Grill with making recipe.
  • For the judges competition, the Halftime Bar & Grill bartender with the coaching of the finalists will make 3x full size cocktail (1 for each judge to try)  in choice of glass (low ball, pint glass etc.) and present that drink to the judge’s table with a quick explanation of the drink, on mic, as hosted by RAD radio.

Judging will be based on Originality, Taste & Presentation each with a 1-10 scoring system. Max 30 points.
