The U.S. Angostura Cocktail Challenge hosted five finalists and was held at the Joy Theater on July 18, 2013. The finalists competed for their chance to win $5k and a trip to Trinidad & Tobago to compete at the Global Angostura Cocktail Challenge.

Each bartender had a total of seven minutes to make two cocktails. Both cocktails had to contain at least 5 dashes of Angostura Bitters, and one of the cocktails was to be made with an Angostura Rum.
