Gin Mare Ibiza Competition - What Went Down

 5 THINGS WE LEARNT FROM A DAY UNDERGROUND AT THE GIN MARE COCKTAIL COMP

1. Wow, ask people to send in their favourite way of drinking GM to win a trip to Ibiza and you'll get a lot of inventive entries - although whoever suggested serving it on ice needs to put a little work in next time.

2. Bartenders beware - People who've never worked a shift 'behind the stick' actually really know how to rock a comp, we saw octopus salad pairings, printed out menus, chalk boards, and even a video made in Gerry's (link), plus no one forgot to put the gin in… Pro's take note.

3. Even on the hottest day of the year, the possibility of winning a trip to Ibiza is enough motivation to make a group of completely sane people spend the hottest day of the year underground mixing up cocktails.

4. Gin Mare goes down way too smooth – the G&Ts were flowing all afternoon, and man these consumers could drink… good stamina.

5. The winning drink is called the Gin Mare Elixir De Vida, by Nastassja, and it sounds a bit like this

 

50ml Gin Mare

20ml lemon juice

1tsp white truffle honey

2tsp olive brine

A pinch of rosemary

Shake and serve over ice, with a splash of sparkling water for a winning drink.

See you in Ibiza!! Thanks to all that came down, check out our Facebook album to check out the drinks!....
