In honor of NBC’s “The 2020 Miss America Competition” coming to Mohegan Sun Arena, one of the largest entertainment, gaming, dining and shopping destinations in the United States, Mohegan Sun is announcing a limited-time Miss America-themed cocktail menu to welcome each of the 51 contestants to the Connecticut flagship property.

From the Massachusetts’ “Massopolitan” to Connecticut’s “Nutmegger” and the “Rhode Island Red”, to Kentucky’s iconic “Mint Julep” and New York’s “Nero Manhattan”, each menu was carefully curated to toast the individual regions, while celebrating Miss America’s big debut at Mohegan Sun. The all-encompassing Integrated Entertainment Resort boasts more than 45 bars and restaurants that will roll out select cocktails from this extensive and mouthwatering menu during the month of December to complement the Miss America 2020 Competition.

“This is a particularly exciting time for both Mohegan Sun and the Miss America Organization as they bring this iconic and empowering competition to one of the busiest arenas in the United States,” said Jeff Hamilton, President and General Manager of Mohegan Sun. “Our property-wide Miss America-themed cocktail menu is just another fun way for our guests, contestants and visitors from around the world to celebrate The Miss America Competition coming to Mohegan Sun for the very first time.”
