Shaking for Puerto Rico

On Saturday, December 16th, the USBG Miami Chapter will bring the entire South Florida community together as they present Shaking For Puerto Rico.

Title Sponsor, Don Q will have Piña Coladas and Coquito shaken up by Miami’s favorite trio, The Cocktail Cartel. Puerto Rican style bites with a Miami twist will also be served from some of Miami’s favorite local restaurants including: Ariete, the newly opened Shelley’s in South Miami, and 27 Restaurant. Beam Suntory will also be on site with a traditional Caja China cooked by Ms. Cheezious.

Aside from decadent food and hand crafted cocktails by Miami’s favorite chefs and star bartenders, Shaking For Puerto Rico will have activities for the entire family, from kids to abuelitas, to enjoy including:

Miami’s Best Coquito Contest – This is a call to Miamians that think they have the best coquito recipe in South Florida. Attendees can bring their coquito and enter it into the contest to potentially reign as the Coquito King or Queen of Miami!

Jim Beam Domino Tournament – The last man (or woman) will get to take home as special edition bottle as their trophy.

Kids Activity Station – There will be stockings and Christmas cards for our younger attendees to decorate that will be sent to kids in Puerto Rico to help brighten their holiday season.

Red Bull Stage with music to keep the party going!
