The 2nd year of the Flavour Vibes contest is open for entries.
Bartenders and Baristas around the world are invited to submit a cocktail recipe in tune with a Rock song of their choice.
After a successful contest last year, 1883 Syrups is opening up Flavour Vibes once more via its Club 83 social network.
To enter bartenders and baristas simply need to visit the Club 83 website and sign in if you already have an account or sign up to open an account. This will give you access to the Club 83 network and is where you can submit your recipe. Club 83 is a social media platform dedicated to Bartenders and Baristas worldwide. On Club 83, professionals can connect with each other, share ideas and recipes.
In recognition of the fact that the 100+ different flavours available with 1883 Syrups are presented in categories of musical styles the Flavour Vibes contest is all about connecting ingredients and recipes with a musical style. For this 2nd edition of Flavour Vibes the chosen musical style is Rock.
The judges are looking for cocktails which can work "in harmony" with the Rock song of your choice. Remember to take and submit a great photo of your drink as the judges will be reviewing entries based on the recipe, the image of the drink and how well it works in harmony with your chosen Rock track. The top 25 recipes will be selected and the creator of each winning drink will win tasting packs of 1883 syrups.
