Monday is the sixth annual RiverTini Pour-Off to benefit the San Antonio River Foundation. This annual competition brings together twenty of the city’s top bars and restaurants to compete for the title of this year’s best martinis as they mix specialty martinis that reflect the fresh and lively spirit of the San Antonio River.
