The local event of the year is coming to Inn on Boltwood! On Thursday, April 26th, we’re thrilled to be hosting the 7th Annual Margarita Madness, sponsored by the Amherst Area Chamber of Commerce. This event has only grown in popularity over the past 7 years, becoming a mainstay in the Valley. With over 20 unique margarita recipes and savory bites from the best restaurants in the area, live music from a mariachi band, a photo booth, and amazing raffle prizes, what’s not to love?
Our master mixologist, Victoria, will be showing off her skills and will go head to head for the coveted titles of Best Restaurant Margarita, Best Business Margarita, and Most Creative Margarita. Victoria is hard at work currently creating her concoction – stay tuned for the details and recipe! In the meantime, we’ll leave you with a few of her past award-winning recipes.
