The Restaurant Hospitality team will choose the most innovative and eye-catching bar beverages served indoors or out; for dine-in or to-go

Bars are back and Americans are raising their glasses to have a drink together like never before.

For independent restaurants serving cocktails, pandemic-era rules have been extended or made permanent in many states, allowing restaurants to serve drinks outside, to-go and for delivery.

That’s why Restaurant Hospitality is calling on independent restaurants to submit their best and most-winning cocktail for this year’s contest, whether served on- or off-premises. Winners will be celebrated in both Restaurant Hospitality and Nation’s Restaurant News in December.

Submissions require a high-resolution photo and information requested in the form below. The deadline for submissions is January 14th. There are no categories by spirit and non-alcohol cocktails are also welcomed.

Additional details:

  • A high-resolution (300 dpi, minimum 4 inches wide) photo of the cocktail is required.
  • The deadline for submissions is 11:59 p.m. EST. on January 14th.
  • Winners will be announced on restaurant-hospitality.com this fall.
