FNCTN and Tahoe Blue Vodka teamed up to present the Triple Crown of Bartending starting on Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. with the fourth annual Bloody Mary competition held at Steamers Bar & Grill.

“I’m excited to sample all of the fabulous creations that stem from the stiff competition of very experienced and experimental bartenders,” Matt Levitt of Tahoe Blue Vodka said.

The Triple Crown of Bartending will include a series of three events designed to test the skills of South Lake Tahoe’s top bartenders while raising money to Keep Tahoe Blue. There is a $500 cash purse up for grabs.

In addition to live outdoor music from Ike & Martin, guests can taste a variety of custom-made Bloody Mary’s with chances to win great prizes from a charity raffle benefitting The League to Save Lake Tahoe. The event is free-of-charge and open to all ages, with $10 tastings of 10 samples for attendees 21 and older.

“If you enjoy drinking a cold Tahoe Blue Vodka beverage in the sunshine with live music and good friends, you’re going to love this new event series,” Mike Peron of FNCTN Productions said. “Tahoe Blue Vodka is one of the most recognizable brands in the Basin and we’re proud to be partnered with them again this summer and give back to a great organization.”

The remaining events in the series include a Style & Flair Competition with live music from Black Star Safari on July 26, as well as Cocktail Concoctions with surprise ingredients and live music from Big Sticky Mess on Aug. 23. There is a $500 purse up for grabs for each event.
