The Bacardi Cocktail Classic is slated for June 5 at the S.C. Aquarium and some mixologists in town aren't wasting any time getting ready for the competition.
Over at Indigo Road, the group that owns O-Ku, Oak, Cocktail Club, and the Macintosh, they'll be having their own smackdown, pitting their bartenders against each other to see who will advance to the Cocktail Classic in June.
Tonight, Monday, May 7, at 10 p.m., the Indigo Road team will assemble at the Cocktail Club, make their signature drinks, and let you vote for your favorite. Of course, head mixologist at the Cocktail Club, Jasmine Beck, is the one to beat. She's won this event (previously called Bacardi Mojito Challenge) two years in a row.
The stakes are high. Whoever wins this first round will go on to compete for an all-expenses-paid trip to Puerto Rico and a VIP tour of the Bacardi distillery.
