Tia Maria challenge to create cocktail with a twist
Tia Maria is inviting creative bartenders to come up with a twist on the classic Tia Espresso Martini in an online international cocktail competition.
Designed to highlight the versatility of the Italian liqueur, the Twist Your Espresso Martini competition will be judged and promoted by international mixology experts, UK Tia Maria brand ambassador Simone Caporale, and head bartender at London’s Artesian Bar, Alex Kratena.
Promotion of the competition will include comical videos and tutorial clips on bartending techniques.
The brand has added a dedicated section to the Tia Maria website where recipes can be submitted and each entrant will instantly win a hand-crafted Japanese garnishing knife.
Submissions for Twist Your Espresso Martini will close on 31 May. Thereafter, three winners will be announced in first, second and third place. These winners will receive gift-vouchers to purchase specialist bartending equipment for the values of £1,000, £500 and £200 respectively.
