Casa Dragones Tequila turned up the heat this summer by supporting the bartending community with its #CocktailsatHome program.
Pulling from over 100 accounts in key markets, tequila tastemakers showcased their mixology mastery with Casa Dragones Blanco cocktails created to impress but cause no stress for the home bartender. All participants received a grant from Casa Dragones.
From west coast LA to northern London and downtown New York to beachfront Tulum, entries poured in and tequila drinks were blended, shaken and stirred in full motion.
The competition was fierce but friendly with over 100 unique submissions, all videos of course as Casa Dragones knows that bartenders belong front and center where they can engage and enthrall while making a damn good drink and called for entries in the form of how-to videos for the at-home bartender.
Finalists were selected based on how well and how much they engaged with the online Casa Dragones community because when it comes to social media more is better. Instagram followers watched and listened as the Blanco flowed freely and filled glasses from coast to coast, selecting eight (8) finalists from Mexico and the US for the final vote.
From Mexico, the four mixologists with moxie are:
- Alvaro Ascencion from Cantina La Veinte, @CantinaVeinte
- Simon Alberti of Dodo Café, @SimonAlberti_
- Pablo Pasti from Limantour, @LimantourMX
- William Hetzel from Tokyo Music Bar, @WilliamHetzel
The United States final four mixologists are:
- Daniel Kocsis from Beaker and Gray, @BeakerandGray
- Jorge Cuenca of the Welton Room, @Jocuenca
- Chelsea Caplin from the Palms Casino Resort, @MSDagger
- Ben Potts from Beaker & Gray and The Sylvester Bar, @BenPottsBenPotts
Whether you like your Blanco with fresh juices in a daydream inducing glass or you prefer a more somber smokey sip on a long summer evening the #CocktailsatHome program shows the versatility of Casa Dragones Blanco tequila.
Join Casa Dragones followers in a vote on who of these eight talented tequila lovers is the fan favorite and winner of the Cocktails at Home Bartender Program.
All entries will be up for your vote through Sunday, August 14th on the @CasaDragones IGTV channel. You can also visit the @CasaDragones FB page to view the submissions and pick up a few tequila tips of your own.
