NewBo City Market in Cedar Rapids is teaming up with Cedar Ridge Winery & Distillery for the annual Cocktail Classic event May 23. Invited mixologists from the Cedar Rapids and Iowa City area will create fun and flashy drinks using Cedar Ridge’s award-winning Iowa Bourbon Whiskey, all to win bragging rights as the event’s best cocktail-er.

A panel of judges will convene to name the Classic Cocktail champion, but since this is a democracy, guests will also vote for the people’s choice winner. Tickets include a welcome cocktail, 10 samples to help you cast your vote, and a $10 voucher to use at other NewBo City Market vendors. Throughout the competition, enjoy live music from the local band Vibe.
