Licor 43 Bartenders and Baristas Challenge 2021

Licor 43, the Spanish liqueur brand, is running the fifth edition of its annual Bartenders & Baristas Challenge and (as in 2020) the 2021 challenge is in a virtual format. Each year, Licor 43 calls on cocktail and coffee professionals around the world to pair up to use their combined skills and creativity to create a Licor 43 and coffee cocktail.

The 2021 challenge is open for entries from professional bartenders at Licor43.com (or email info@licor43.com), with applicants invited to submit films of them making and talking through their Licor 43 coffee cocktail creations.

Each national round (plus the European Bartending School) will choose one winner to go on to the next, global final, stage which will see entrants revise their recipes so they can be evaluated by the judging panel. These films will be shown on the Licor 43 Youtube channel with an additional winner voted by the public on 27th October 2021.
