We’ve all heard the saying that behind every great man, there is a great women!
Well guess what, today we’re living in the 21st century and it’s time for female bartenders to step into the spotlight and take ownership for the amazing things they do! – No offence guys, we know you’re awesome too… we’re just really excited about the launch of the 2016 Cointreau Queens Cocktail Competition.
The what? It’s an exciting competition where teams of three will compete to win a chance to be supported and trained by three of Hong Kong’s award-winning bartenders and mentors including Antonio Lai, Beckaly Franks and Agung Prabowo.
But for the exciting part… EVERY TEAM WILL BE LEAD AND BROUGHT ONE STEP CLOSER TO VICTORY BY A WOMAN! – That’s right, Beyoncé called it, who run the world? GIRLS! (But just so we don’t confuse anyone, men are allowed to make up the two other members of the team as well)
Now for the finer details, on March 8th the Cointreau Queens Cocktail Competition was launched in Hong Kong and to celebrate, a masterclass was held at VEA Bar and Restaurant, where Antonio Lai and Beckaly Franks showed everyone how to make their take on a Cointreau Fizz.
Why would they do such a thing? Because the Cointreau Fizz is just one of the cocktails that each of the teams will have to make for the chance to win the Hong Kong round, the other one being a unique Cointreau creation.
So if you’re interested in taking part in the Cointreau Queens Competition than submit your recipes on or before April 30th 2016. After submitting the recipes, teams will be selected to go on to the Hong Kong City competition. The selected teams will be able to have their own mentor who will prepare and support the team. The two winning teams from the Hong Kong competition will then go on to national final.
