Not a Hot Toddy… the 2nd Annual Marietta Bartenders Competition

November 4, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Last year, 5 of Marietta Square’s most talented bartenders took on the challenge of creating a cocktail that was warming in some way but was not actually hot. We heard stories of family heritage and tasted flavors of apple spice, chai, and tahini just to name a few!

This year features a slightly streamlined format in 2 rounds… round 1 welcomes 3 new competitors from the neighborhood who – like in year 1 – will be given a featured spirit and tasked with creating their “not a hot toddy” warming cocktail for our judges. Round 2 teams up these new competitors as they face off against some of our contestants from last year. The Freshmen vs the Sophomores teams will will be given a handful of spirits and other ingredients and will have 15 minutes to come up with a warming “not a hot toddy” cocktail on the spot. As the judges rate their creations, the teams will prepare samples for your vote as well!

Our panel of sponsor-judges includes Jeff Stockton of Spiribam, Katie Mcloughlin of Heaven Hill, Ryan Meegan of Makers Mark, and Eric Heine of Bond and Royal!

Your ticket includes:

  1. Two drink tickets for cocktails from the Church Street Vacation menu
  2. One meal ticket for dinner from our featured food truck
  3. One raffle ticket for awesome prizes provided by our sponsors
  4. Two tasting portions of the freshman vs sophomore cocktails and a vote in naming the winning team!
