It’s time to master your craft, creating your signature concoction that reflects one of the two options for inspiration.

1. ‘Minimal Waste, Maximum taste’, OR 2. ‘That moment in time…’

The Perfect Blend, continues with the sustainability messaging and provides bartenders with an option to create a cocktail reflective of ‘’Minimal waste, Maximum taste’ demonstrating understanding of how to create second-use recipes, minimising wastage in bars.

The second option is up to your own individual interpretation of ‘That moment in time..’ This can be anything from a historical moment in time, a life changing moment or a moment that evokes nostalgia, it’s up to you…
