Luxardo Cocktail Campione 2014
Words by Jane Ryan
Get involved. Get inspired. Win.
Luxardo has had an incredible journey, charting through two world wars, devastating loss, relocation and above all, success. Now is your chance to get involved in this journey, be inspired by it and win. Watch as G Franklin creates his favourite Italian-inspired cocktail.
Luxardo liqueurs are now calling for entrants to its 2014 Luxardo Cocktail Campione with a prize of £3000 up for grabs.
The competition draws inspiration from the brand's home in Italy, where the Luxardo family grow their world famous cherries, and where the three competition finalists will travel to present their cocktails.
To enter the competition bartenders need to head over to Luxardo's website and submit an original cocktail recipe with at least 20ml of any Luxardo Liqueur and a maximum of both seven ingredients and 70ml alcohol. This must be done by July 18th, so be quick.
Your drink will need to draw inspiration from Luxardo's homeland of Italy, ranging from the country's relaxed drinking style to its many native ingredients. Get inspired by other entrants and see how they've interpreted the brief and got experimental.
The best three entrants will be flown to Italy where, in front of the Luxardo family, they will present their drink. From there the winner will be announced and crowned The 2014 Luxardo Cocktail Campione as well as receiving £3000 in cash.
Think you've got what it takes? Grab your shaker and get creative.
Entries must be received by July 18th 2014.
