Bar & Beverage Stage
This year we're taking the bartender cocktail contest beyond the rail, as bartenders showcase their skills crafting cocktails that challenge innovation and sustainability. We are spicing things up with an iron-chef style, black box element. Adhering to the theme on sustainability, competitors are challenged to think their feet and utilize material found on the show floor, plus additional ingredients in a mystery box to create two signature cocktails. The winner will take home a delightful cash prize.
Our judging panel will include media personality and Duff on the Rocks' Elayne Duff.
The winner will be crowned RC Show Innovative Bartender of the Year!
1st Place - $3000
2nd Place - $1500
3rd Place - $500
