Well, we might be exaggerating a little, but there have been a few rumblings, a little trash talk and some other psych-out tactics being performed by the bartenders participating in the 4th Annual Bartender Battle on July 17th, 6pm @ Tom Foolery’s in Middletown, De. All with good reason. They are competing for great prizes, bragging rights and the honor of being called “Best Bartender for 2013” at Tom Foolery’s.
This is a unique event giving the 8 competing Bartenders the opportunity to get creative, showcase their talents and have a little fun. The theme is Caribbean and what better ingredient is there to start with than Bacardi Rum? Think of all the flavors they’ll have to work with to create these crafty cocktail concoctions – Pineapple Fusion, Razz & Dragon Berry to name a few.
The contestants will have the opportunity to score from 1-10 in these 4 categories – taste, presentation, creativity and theme integration- the 4 judges consist of 3 beverage sales professionals and 1 local Bartender. The judges will taste the cocktails and help judge the final round. The final round parameters will remain unknown until that evening when the final 2 contestants will go head to head.
