Entries for the Angostura Global Cocktail Challenge will close on Saturday 15 July – that’s this weekend! Wannabe champions should enter at angosturaglobalcocktailchallenge.com ASAP.
Often thought of as one of the toughest comps on the circuit, each entrant will need to submit written recipes for two cocktails – an Angostura rum cocktail and an Amaro di Angostura cocktail both containing Angostura aromatic bitters.
In addition, they will need to film and upload a three minute video of them making their rum cocktail and submit a written entry online.
Bartenders will be competing for one of the biggest prizes in the game with AU$10,000 in cash plus a 12 month contract as the Australian Angostura Brand Ambassador, not to mention a trip to Trinidad during Carnival to compete for the global title, where the overall winner will receive US$10,000 and a two year contract as Angostura Global Brand Ambassador.
In past years, the challenge has seen some of the most influential bartenders in the industry compete for the title. Previous Australian winners include well-known bartenders such as Marco Nunes from Canvas in Brisbane, Joe Sinagra from Bobeche in Perth, Andy Griffiths from Melbourne, Mike Tomasic from Rhonda’s in Terrigal and James Irvine from Swillhouse in Sydney. Marco, Andy and Mike have all won the global title too.
Tips for entering:
- Keep it simple
- Follow the rules to the letter. It’s amazing how many people fail because they haven’t followed the rules and guidelines of the competition
- Ask your guests and colleagues for their opinions on your drink before submitting your recipes
