Need For Speed

In the Retro – Chic Speed Challenge each competitor will have 8 minutes to make as many drinks as possible, 6 being maximum and 4 minimum, from a chosen list of classics. This by itself doesn’t necessarily sound that complicated, but add some nerves, and you have the perfect plot for a bartender meltdown!

Of course, being World Class, this is just the top of the iceberg (or ice cube if you’d like), and the time restraint is merely the most obvious obstacle.

The judges will also be judging you on technique (obviously), presentation (fittingly), creativity (surprisingly?) and of course – the taste and balance of your drinks. In other words, no point in banging out the fastest round if it doesn’t taste amazing too!

First thing first though, choose your drinks and choose them wisely!

The list includes:

  • Aviation
  • Balalaika
  • Blood and Sand
  • Ketel Caipiroska
  • Clover Club
  • Cosmopolitan
  • Dry Martini
  • Mai Tai
  • Margarita
  • Moscow Mule
  • Rob Roy
  • Rosita
  • Singapore Sling
  • The Last Word
  • The Vesper
  • Vodka Sour
