Funkin Innovation Championship 2019

Closing date: 31 Jul 2019

Cocktail purée and mixer brand Funkin has launched its Innovation Championship competition for 2019.

To enter, Funkin has asked bartenders to craft a cocktail inspired by the 90s, the decade in which the company was founded. 

Cocktail entries should be easily replicable, and must feature a minimum of 25ml FunkinPro Purée and one FunkinPro Cocktail Syrup. Craft your cocktail, then submit your recipe, along with a 200-word (or less) explanation of your inspiration and why your serve is sure to be a best-seller.

The top entries will be selected to compete in the final on 10 September. These finalists will also get to take part in a day-long creative session at Crucible in London, led by Crucible director Stu Bale and his team of cocktail innovators – if you attended the Funkin Innovation Lab earlier this year, you’ll recall how informative these sessions can be. Competitors will then face off in a series of challenges to crown the winner.

And the prize for all this hard work? The Funkin Innovation Champion 2019 will receive £1,000 cash, a one-year, part-time contract with the brand and an all-expenses-paid trip to Bar Convent Berlin.

The deadline for entering this year’s comp is 31 July, so get entering!
