If your obsession for the humble brown coffee bean extends beyond the daylight hours, then YouTube sensation SteveTheBartender has the cocktail competition (or should we say challenge) that is perfect for you.
Joining forces with Australian Coffee Liqueur company Mr Black, Steve is challenging bartenders (of all skill levels) to create a Coffee Liqueur cocktail from scratch
Entitled The Coffee Liqueur Challenge 2020, the competition has the proviso that the recipe must be original, but beyond that, is open to anyone who’s up to the task of creating a unique cocktail recipe using Mr Black as one of the ingredients.
Running over eight weeks, the competition is offering weekly prizes up for grabs as well as a grand prize of a $1000 coffee machine and $250 cash.
3 weekly finalists will be selected based on public votes each drink received on the website. Steve the Bartender will then recreate the 3 weekly finalists’ cocktails and select a winner based on taste, presentation, originality and creativity of each drink. Each week the 3 finalists will be featured on the Steve the Bartender YouTube channel.
After the 8 weeks, the 8 winners will then be taste-tested by the Mr Black Coffee Cocktails Judging Panel. From those eight, the Grand Prize winner will be selected – again based on taste, presentation, originality and creativity.
The competition is open to residents of Australia, New Zealand, the USA, the UK and Germany. For more information, go to coffeecocktailschallenge.com
