Southern Comfort Cocktail Competition

Fancy winning a VIP trip to New Orleans? Of course you do.

The Southern Showdown cocktail competition is back, challenging bartenders to create a new twist on a classic New Orleans cocktail using Southern Comfort.

The brief is simple: cocktails must contain at least 35ml of Southern Comfort and take inspiration for their serve from New Orleans, and the cocktails the city is best known for.

The best of the bunch will be invited by UK distributor Hi-Spirits to take part in one of six regional Southern Showdown heats throughout the UK this July.

The final will be held in London on 2 August.

Comp hack? Entrants can earn bonus points in the run-up to the regional showdowns by using social media, including photos and video content, to show how New Orleans has inspired their cocktail.

Go on, you have until 16 June…
