Regatta, creator of renowned Regatta Classic Bermuda Stone Ginger Beer and a full range of craft mixers, partnered with Denver’s The Mule Majors in April to mix it up with the Mile High City’s top bartenders. 

Throughout the daylong event, more than 2,200 revelers, local influencers and judges sipped samples of distinctive handcrafted Moscow Mule cocktails, created by 15 different local restaurants and bars, to unveil the two top honors—“Peoples Choice” and “Judges Choice” awards for Denver’s best Mule cocktail. Cocktail entries were all made with Regatta Classic Bermuda Stone Ginger Beer and included a wide range of inspired twists on the classic drink that’s served in the iconic polished copper mug.
