When: Tue., Jan. 12, 5-9 p.m. 2016
Serious stirring and shaking is about to happen, thanks to the Texas return of Speed Rack, the all-female speed-bartending competition that raises money for breast cancer charities. The fifth national tour will stop in San Antonio as it brings together 18 of the best, brightest and fastest female bartenders in the region. To date, Speed Rack has raised more than $350,000 for breast cancer charities in the U.S. and abroad. Contestants will compete in timed heats to make rounds of cocktails, culled from a list of 50 accepted industry-standard classic recipes, in front of a panel of judges and a crowd of excited viewers. Judges rate each drink based on prep time and accuracy.
