The winner’s specialty drink will then be adopted by participating restaurants as the official San Clemente drink. Participating Contestants thus far: Adele’s at the San Clemente Inn, BeachFire Bar & Grill, Café Mimosa, Ole’s Tavern, Red Fox Lounge, Sunsets at the Pier & Taka-O Japanese Restaurant.
