Imagine making a cocktail that could mean winning $10,000 and a job as the Global Brand Ambassador for Angostura Bitters and Rum. Talk about pressure. This past week, fifteen of the world’s best bartenders went head to head in Trinidad & Tobago for a chance to win this top prize. Each bartender was given exactly seven minutes to make two cocktails, a freestyle cocktail and a rum cocktail. They were then judged by some of the spirits industry’s luminaries, including Tony Abou-Gamin, the bartender who helped put the cocktail on the Las Vegas map, Jacob Briars, the award winning global brand ambassador for Leblon Cachaca, and Eric Forget, the cellar master for Hine Cognac.
