Sample over ten exciting cocktail creations from elite local mixologists all vying to win Best Cocktail! This year, we are featuring Cedar Ridge's own Bagger Vodka!

Vodka began its rise in popularity in the United States in the 1950s and 60s and we want to celebrate this spirit and era with the best locally-made vodka there is - Bagger Vodka!

On Wednesday, April 8th, 2020 at 6:30pm, NewBo City Market will be transformed into a 1950's backyard extravaganza with 10 of the Cedar Rapids' finest bartenders showcasing their best vodka-based creations. Featuring a panel of 'celebrity' judges to name the "Cocktail Classic Champion," guests will also be given the opportunity to vote for "The People's Choice".
