For those heading to Tales of the Cocktail, one of the must-go-to events has to be the 3rd Annual Viva Sangrita Competition with Tequila Ocho and the Bon Vivants. On Wednesday, July 17, the regional winners from around the country with compete to win a trip to the Tequila Ocho distillery in Mexico. I’m cheering on local Los Angeles bartender Laura Lindsay from Connie & Ted’s in West Hollywood. She’s up against some heavyweights including Miami’s Robert Ferrara. Miami has taken home the title the last two years.

I loved Laura’s sangrita and in fact had voted for it at the local competition. The apple-based sangrita went perfectly with Tequila Ocho, enhancing some of that rich agave-sweetness.
