Competition for Bartenders

Ice-O-Matic have launched a competition to find ‘the best use of ice in an original drink’. It is open to all bartenders across the country and it is called ‘Cocktails on Ice Challenge’.

Bartenders will have to prepare 3 cocktail recipes, 2 of them have to be classic twists and 1 is to be completely original for the first round of the competition. All have to show how to make the best use of ice in the drink.

Just 6 of these competitors will go forward to the live final, which will be held at the Imbibe Live show on 4 and 5 July in London. The prize is an expenses-paid trip to the famous Swedish Ice Hotel, which has been seen on the television in various programmes.

With all those fantastic mixologists out there in the UK, competition should be fierce.
