We invite you to come and show your skill and knowledge in a dynamic event that tests your creativity and palate, as well as your speed and performance under pressure.
Competitors will compete in heats. Each heat will be given a canapé to taste and use as the inspiration for creating a cocktail that is a perfect pair to their canapé.
Competitors will have 7 minutes to prepare their cocktails to impress the judges. From the group of 30 qualifiers 16 will be chosen to advance to the MadeWithLove main event in July 2014. Competitors will be judged on creativity, taste, presentation, speed and technique of their cocktails, and of course, the compatibility of their cocktail pairing.
