The Tin on Tin Cocktail Classic was created to challenge bartenders from across the city of Chicago to elevate their careers and flex their mixology muscles. This year’s competition will focus on healthy cocktails with an emphasis on sustainable, local, and natural ingredients. The competitors will be judged on their ability to interpret these parameters through their presentation, concept, creativity and ability to engage while working. Products used will be from a selected list of Diageo products as a main spirit and Breakthrough spirits as a secondary.
Attendees will be treated to an array of spirit and cocktail samples along with wine and cheese pairings, beer tastings, and entertaining demonstrations including a boozy sorbet bar and ice luge, and can partake in the judging process for the “Popular Vote” category. Tickets are $20 per person online and $25 at the door. For more information, visit www.tinontinchicago.com.
