Get ready to pour your heart out after one too many margaritas at the third annual Red River Margarita Pour Off.
Any festival with cocktail sampling is a winner with us (although possibly not with our heads the next morning) and the Pour Off adds the perfect slice of competition as you're encouraged to vote for your favourite tipple.
A selection of the best restaurants, bars and casinos from the Shreveport and Bossier City areas are coming together for the third time for the Margarita Pour Off 2017 to battle it out for the title of 'best margarita.' A drinks and culinary festival to delight the palette, the beverages that are mixed up are often modern twists on this cult, classic drink; expect a range of sweet, spicy, frozen or on the rocks flavours and styles.
Each guest is given a voting chip upon arrival, which they use to vote for their favourite margarita of the day. After the chips have been counted and a winner chosen, the establishment with the most wins not only the title but a $1,000 cash prize. What's more voters then have the chance to get their hands on some cash through the early evening salsa competition. On a first-come, first-served basis, ten couples will salsa it out to win $100.
Vendors will be on hand to serve up some local flavours as well as a variety of hand-made trinkets, like jewellry, candles and soaps. If you're looking to eat, drink and dance until you've had your fill, the Margarita Pour Off has you covered. Just don't plan too much sight-seeing for the next day - the hangover might not permit it.
