Below you can sign up to have your location participate in the Margarita Showdown at Geauga County Fairgrounds where you get the chance to win BEST MARGARITA in GEAUGA COUNTY. Winner takes home $500 and a trophy.

You agree to the following terms for your entry
1. You bring 20 gallons of your special margarita all batched and ready to go. But WITHOUT the tequila
2. We supply the tequila and triple sec for all sampling under our liquor license. This will be added at the event
3. You’ll need to have a complete recipe/ingredient list that is put on the back of your containers. This is part of liquor control rules. Don’t worry, no one gets to see your secret recipe 🙂
4. We supply all sampling cups
5. Your location must promote the event online and and your location.

This is also a great opportunity for you to sell some gift cards, collect data for email blasts, do a contest and even pass out your menus. Many locations have run a special at our events where guests can buy gift cards but at a special rate. For example, get a $50 gift card for $40. You will sell a bunch. And in most cases, those folks spend more than $50 when they come in. Great way to get people in the door and make money. Make the most out of the event. Engage with guests and make them feel welcome.
