Event description

Description

Violet Crown Spirits, a craft distillery based in Austin, Texas, invites you to their upcoming Day of the Dead-themed contest to benefit Lone Star Victims Advocacy Project, a non-profit that provides free legal services for immigrant victims of abuse in rural Texas communities.

Professional and home bartenders are encouraged to enter a recipe using Violet Crown’s Midnight Marigold Bitter Cordial as an ingredient, according to the rules. The event will celebrate Día de los Muertos and the iconic marigold flower that accompanies altars and offerings during this Mexican celebration. The competition will also be an offering itself, as proceeds from the event will be donated to the Lone Star Victims Advocacy Project.

This competition, the brainchild of Jessica Leigh Graves and Claudia Alarcon, is about celebrating life and how close we are to death at any moment, about our connection to friends and family who have passed. We encourage you to focus on themes of Mexican, Aztec or Maya cultures, Dia de los Muertos, your friends or family who have passed, the celebration of life, the acknowledgement of the nearness of death, or anything else in the neighborhood of those themes. Attendees are encouraged to bring a memento of a loved one - including pets - to add to the altar which will be on display throughout the event and into Dia de los Muertos.

Contestants should fill out the registration form between now and the deadline for entries on Monday October 7th at 11:59pm. Finalists will be announced Monday October 14th, and the winning cocktail will be chosen by a panel of expert judges at the event. Flor de Muertos will take place on Monday, October 28th at Bar 508, beginning at 6:00pm. Bar 508 is located at 508 E 8th Street, Austin, TX 78701.
