Surf’s up on South Beach for an evening of Polynesian flare and tiki-inspired cocktails. Once again, guests will enjoy an artful display of libations and bites at the hip and trendy Surfcomber boutique hotel - but with a spirited twist. BACARDÍ rum won’t be the only star of the night, as Patrón Tequila gets in on the action this year. We’ve tapped one of Latin radio’s most recognizable personalities Enrique Santos, the host of Tú 94.9s Morning Show, to host this hyper-local affair. As the Chairman and Chief Creative Officer of iHeartLatino, Santos is intrinsically linked to the strong roots of the local community, and will preside as an elite group of mixologists from across South Florida battle it out! We’ve rounded up some of the best bartenders across Florida as they compete to be crowned tiki-King or Queen at the end of the night. An esteemed panel of judges will evaluate the contestants’ rum or tequila-centric offerings, while guests sip on their creations and savor bites from some of South Florida’s most buzzed about spots. Come get your tiki on!
