"The overall inspiration for the garnish for good, Ketel One Challenge is creating a drink using sustainable methods throughout each ingredient and run a series of workshops that help young and passionate bartenders to compete in competitions and develop themselves into "World Class Bartenders" with a conscious mind of sustainability & giving back to the community.

The inspiration that I got through this initiative to create my cocktail was to source my ingredients locally at small privately owned markets, which will hopefully inspire many on and off the trade to buy local and support small businesses within UAE.
