Who will be the last man standing at SA's Absolut Invite tonight?

It goes down tonight and yours truly has been invited to experience these drink wizard’s work and sample their delicious cocktails!

The winner will represent SA at the international finals in Åhus in South of Sweden, between May 24 & 26 2015.

Entering its fifth edition and mzansi hosting for the first time with Russia, Sweden and Germany competing this year, Absolut Invite, as the name suggests, is a bartending competition run by Absolute that invites only the world’s top bartenders whom are personally selected and represent some of the best in the business and the concept of the competition is designed to put all the necessary skills needed to the test.

The Creative Mixing challenge is judged on three merits: the taste and scent of the cocktail; how well the bartenders interpreted the theme and the creative presentation of the drink.

In the Knowledge section the bartender has to answer 20 questions not only about Absolut Elyx but also industry wide.

Finally in the Sensory element of the competition the bartenders will be challenged to identify the ingredients and raw materials of a variety of different drinks.

Here you have the steps it takes to become this year’s Absolut Invite Champion and the winner of an unforgettable trip to “Tales of the Cocktail” in New Orleans on May 25 in 2015.

The theme of Absolut Invite 2015 is ‘Handcraft’ (not witchcraft) of the cocktail, and judges Krister Asplund and Andreas Kunster will have a tough time picking out the winner!

Who will fly aloft our flag in Sweden will be revealed tonight?

Good luck fellows…

NB. Rory has replaced Brendan, according to Capacity Relations PR spokesperson Simphiwe Majola.
