Did you know that each year Traditions Spirits takes the stage to run the ORA Cocktail Shakedown? It’s a one-day competition hosted on the first day of the Oklahoma Restaurant Association Expo where competitors create unique and tasty cocktails in hopes to win the Shakedown Championship Belt – as well as a portion of the more than $3,000 in prizes! Competitors come from all across Oklahoma to compete in the highly anticipated bartender event of the year and this year we had one of our own mixing for the win – Garrett Blevins from WinStar Beverage!
This year’s MC for the event was nonother than our own, Marcus Tilley! We also had an entire team that worked behind the scenes at the event to make sure it ran smoothly and successfully, bussing the stations, assisting the competitors and much more. We are thankful to have such an outstanding team that not only helps to make events like these happen, but also makes them fun and enjoyable for everyone.
After 3 rounds and competing against 15 other contestants, we are proud to announce that Garrett took home the title of Cocktail Shakedown Champion along with multiple prizes and of course the belt!
