Calling all Australian bartenders, as entries are now open to the 42BELOW Sustainable Cocktail competition. This could be your opportunity to win a life-changing experience.
DISCLAIMER: This is not a regular cocktail competition, a usual prize won’t be won, and you won’t come back like an average person. Intrigued?
All you have to do is head on over to the 42BELOW Facebook page. Entries can be submitted via the page until 5pm, Monday 22nd October 2018 and will be judged on your creativity, sustainability and popularity. Entries must also be shared via entrants’ Instagram pages with the hashtag #42BELOW to be complete.
If you haven’t figured already, 42BELOW is all about saving the planet – because no earth means no pure vodka and we can’t have that. For this competition, 42BELOW have drawn inspiration from the volume of trash that is found in the Pacific Ocean. The amount of rubbish accumulated is about five times the size of New Zealand.
Drawing inspiration (or disgust) from this giant mess floating in our ocean, you will be required to create cocktails that are sustainable and delicious.
42BELOW Vodka Professor Jacob Briars said: “We like to do the right thing by planet Earth, but it seems not all humans are on board with this idea. The 42BELOW Sustainable Cocktail Showcase aims to change some minds by demonstrating how being sustainable can be both easy and tasty, and we hope to see some amazing new drinks created for this cause.”
The top competitors will be announced on Thursday 1st November, while the voting period will run until January 2019. Two Australian and two Kiwi winners will be announced on Friday 8th February 2019.
