In New Orleans there’s a party on every street, a story behind every door and a mischievous smile inviting you to be a part of it all. So, we’re asking bartenders to create a signature serve, that tastes great, is replicable and tells a great story.
- The best cocktails will be shortlisted by regions and the top two (12 in total) from each will be invited to join in the Bartenders Challenge.
- Hosted at the Hi-Spirits bar, the day will consist of a series of challenges designed to test all aspects of bartending where the four grand finalists will be selected.
- The 4 finalists will then go head-to-head aboard the Dixie Queen for the Southern Showdown Grand Final, showcasing their entry to fellow bartenders and industry legends for their chance to win one of two places on a trip to Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans.
