Azuñia Tequila and USBG Phoenix Chapter are on a quest to find Phoenix’s Best Lady Bartender with a girl-powered cocktail competition.

Stay classy, sassy and a little bad assy. Azuñia Tequila has launched a quest to find Phoenix’s Best Lady Bartender with a girl-powered cocktail competition. The best female bartenders in Phoenix can compete for the title of “Best Lady Bartender of Phoenix,” as well as a local “Staycation” Prize Package, in a competition presented by Azuñia Tequila and USBG Phoenix Chapter.

“This competition, like estate-grown Azuñia organic tequila, is for women who believe in quality and balance in life. Many in the food and beverage industry work long hours day and night. Azuñia, in conjunction with the women-owned Tuck Shop and the Phoenix Bartenders’ Guild, wants to celebrate the efforts of women in the highly competitive and strenuous industry of mixology. Additionally, we want to encourage industry women to find balance in their lives.”
– Kailee Asher, Sales Manager and Mixologist for Azuñia Tequila

Azuñia and USBG will accept entries via email between April 3 and April 15, 2018. In addition to the cocktail recipe and name, entries must also include one paragraph about the cocktail’s inspiration.

Eight bartenders will be selected from the online submissions to compete in a live bartender competition at Tuck Shop in Phoenix on May 21, 2018. Three winners from the live competition will be selected by a panel of professional female bartenders to win one of three health and wellness-focused prizes, including the grand prize of a “Staycation + Spa” package at a local resort, valued at $1,000.

Competitors will be judged on factors like Flavor, Appearance, Bartender Presentation, and Imagination. Each competitor must bring their own equipment, though Azuñia Tequila and ice will be provided at the events.

The winner of the Best Lady Bartender of Phoenix competition will be featured on and Azuñia’s social media profiles.
