Houston bartenders/restaurants will compete for the title of “Houston’s Best Michelada”. The Michelada is a traditional drink made with a tomato juice base and beer. Over the years the recipe has been changed and modified with several unique individualized ideas. The Michelada is named after General Michel who would order this drink in a cantina. Since then, it has been the weekend drink of choice in the Hispanic market for generations.

The Greater Houston Restaurant Association Michelada Contest will be held at Jax Grill during our Annual Fall Cookout. We will be hosting a private qualification round on November 1st for the first 20 entries. Only the top five (5) bartenders will compete for the best Michelada mix on November 8th.
