The United States Bartenders Guild (USBG) and Tuaca Liqueur announce the launch of the 1st Annual USBG Drinks & Ink Competition presented by Tuaca. This not-so-usual take on a bartender competition combines the intersecting cultures of bartenders and tattoos with bartenders being judged on their Tuaca bold shot recipe and the overall craftsmanship of their tattoo. Local winners will have the opportunity to compete for a photo spread in Inked Magazine in the National Finals in New York on April 11.
Entries for local competitions can be submitted online at usbg.org or requested from their local Tuaca distributor rep. Six bartenders in each market will be chosen to compete at a local event for a spot in the National Finals.
