For the celebration the SC Aquarium will be transformed into a steamy Caribbean paradise where a panel of local celebrity judges and the public will decide the winning Bacardi cocktail while enjoying the sultry Cuban Jazz and Salsa of Gino Castillo and his Sextet.
Previous winners of the competition include John Acquino from Coast, and the 2011 winner, Lindsay Ranes from O-Ku.
Leading up to the event, Bacardi Cocktail Classic is hosting weekly Facebook and Twitter ticket giveaway contests for fans of their pages.
