Try Tampa’s Two Signature Cocktails

This past December Tampa gained not one but two signature cocktails from the Crafting Tampa’s Cocktail competition, which pitted 14 local mixologists against one another to make a cocktail representative of Tampa.

Seeing as Tampa is a lively, diverse city 24-hours a day, the winning mixologist Kamran Mir from The Hub, was tasked with creating two cocktails so Tampa could have a unique cocktail at all hours of the day that truly embraced and celebrated Tampa’s rich history.

Check out Kamran’s recipes below and tag us in your photos making/enjoying Tampa’s cocktails @tampasdowntown on all social media platforms!
