Calling All Bartenders


The Park City Area Restaurant Association celebrates the most unique sips of summer with the return of their annual summer cocktail contest. Recipe entries are now being accepted from bartenders and mixologists of PCARA establishments to be on this year’s contest ballot. The winner will earn a $200 cash prize, city-wide recognition, and winner will be featured in Association’s marketing efforts following the contest.

We sampled some impressively inventive cocktails last year, and we have no doubt participants will set out to top themselves this year and we can’t wait to try this year’s creations, and for patrons to get out and try the new flavors flowing from our local bar and restaurant scene.

2016 – LaBounty Bourbon Ice Bomb, Silver Star Cafe
