SANTA MONICA—Del Frisco’s Grille, Santa Monica’s pier-adjacent eatery, is partnering up with Tito’s Vodka to host the city’s very first Bloody Mary Battle. Bartenders from five local restaurants will serve up their best tomato-based cocktails for a chance to win the competition and name the charity that will receive a portion of the event’s proceeds, which Tito’s will match.

The beverage battle will take place Sunday, June 28, starting at 12 p.m. Participants over 21 can try all five drinks and vote for their favorite for just $20. The customer’s choice, along with an official panel of judges, will determine the winner.
