Monday, August 3, mixologists from across the country will go head to head under one roof for Bombay Sapphire’s Most Imaginative Bartender Miami competition. Each representing his or her own city, the contendors will vie for the regional title and a spot in the North American Finals taking place in September, not to mention the exposure that comes with being named Most Imaginative Bartender. Particpants are allowed to use no more than six ingredients in their recipes, which must be gin-based. Entries will be judged by appearance, aroma, taste and, in the case of a tie, overall impression.
Now in its 9th year, the competition will also feature a Consumer Cocktail Hour where guests can sample and cast their votes for some of Miami’s most forward-thinking cocktails. At the end of the night, the votes will be tallied to determine who receives the Miami People’s Choice award.
The competition will take place at 1 Hotel from 7:30 – 10 p.m.
