Adopting the theme “Fun, Flair and Mixology – the Art of Bartending Challenge 2012”
contestants from across Bali and the rest of Indonesia have already registered to participate, with one challenger hailing from far-away Hungary slated to take part.
The categories being tested during the competition include mixology and flair. Mixology will test the bartender’s ability to prepare attractive and delicious alcoholic drink concoctions. Meanwhile, the “flair” section concentrates on a bartender’s ability to entertain and impress while at the same time artistically wielding bottles of ingredients without missing a beat.
As an added challenge, bartenders in the mixology section will have their creative talents challenged when they are presented with a secretive “Black Box”
– a sealed container of mystery spirits, liqueurs, juice and garnishes from which they are expected to create an original drink creation.
Semi-finals will be held on June 7 and 8, 2012, with the final round held on June 9th. The preliminaries will willow down the contestants to only ten participants in the finals held on the last day.
Ngurah Udayana, the organizer of the event, told Beritabali.com
that the top prize in the competition is Rp. 25 million (US$ 2690).
Said Udayana: “This competition is aimed at discovering new bartending talent in Bali and the rest of Indonesia. We hope this competition can enhance the quality of bartenders in Bali, bringing them to an international standard."
Cost of registration is Rp. 200,000 (US$21.80).
