Here’s a preview on two of the competitors:
Cocktail Ammunition/Spirit Sponsor: Ron Zacapa
“I’m very excited about the event. The last 2 years, I have worked at two boutique wholesalers; At one, I was a Spirits Manager and the other, I was the Director of Beverage Development. Currently, I am the Brand Ambassador for FAIR Spirits here in Nevada. Without giving to much away, my game plan is to create a cocktail that compliments the chefs creation. We have met and have discussed strategy. As much as I want to give a preview, I don’t really want to give anything away.”
“We are all excited for the event and it should be fun! Although we are competitive, we are also excited to be a part of it and look forward to cooking with fellow friends at this event. Our game plan is to have fun and make it a fun experience for all the guests. I am certain we can all provide some tasty bites and sips for the masses!! We have a theme and we have synergy; we will have a great time with all involved. It’s about the teamwork between Bartender and Chef when they come together to create a delicious pairing and then share it. That is both the challenge, and the best part!!”
Chef Joshua Clark
