About the Best Cocktail Contest

In 2015, we launched our very first New Hope Celebrates Rocks OUT Cocktail Contest with national liquor sponsor Bacardi. Now, in our third year and now rebranded as our “Annual Best Cocktail Contest”, it has become a major part of our Pride Event in May.

Sponsored by nationally known liquor companies, led by local liquor reps, the contest is supported by our local Restaurants and Bars who have made it a hugely successful program.

For the past two years, Tito’s Vodka has been a major supporter of this event. Joining Tito’s as co-sponsors were Bulleit Bourbon & Rye and Jose Cuervo Silver. Tito’s is back for 2019 along with Templeton Rye.

Visitors are invited to participate in a week-long contest where local establishments create special drinks that feature our premier liquors. Bartenders are encouraged to be creative, then the public votes for their favorite cocktail at any of our participating establishments.

Votes are captured via a mobile website then the top three winners battle it out for the grand prize and bragging rights at our annual NHC Sponsor Party in June.
