Espolón Tag Teams Heading into the Final Throw Down!

By Shayleigh Ward posted 10-05-2018 18:09


We have traversed the US holding Espolón Cocktail Fights in 13 USBG cities. This year we decided to up the ante and have each region send six teams of two who worked together show they had the biggest imagination, the sharpest skills, and the deepest camaraderie.

It's all fun, folks in this cocktail competition that is like no other. Each team created a persona duo including names, costumes, and props and had to surpass the field of teams in a number of challenges to snag the coveted championship belts!

The top-scoring teams also earned a Mexico Educational Experience, October 30th through November 3rd (just in time for the Day of the Dead)! Along with the fun, they will also visit the Espolón Distillery to learn more about the history and the process in making of Espolón Tequila. They will also be looking for inspiration for their costumes and cocktails for the final showdown at the National Competition being held on November 19th in New York City.
