Shakes & the City is back for a second year, and it’s gotten bigger, growing from three teams competing at Imbibe Live in 2016 to nine fighting it out this year.
The competition is ostensibly to find the best cocktail city in the UK by way of challenging a team of three bartenders from each city to create a drink that epitomises their hometown.
Imbibe is holding heats in Manchester, Edinburgh and Bristol, with three cities competing in each heat. The winners from each heat will then battle it out in a final on the main stage at Imbibe Live on 4 July, with a cash prize of £1,000 available to the winner.
And we’d love to see you support your city in the heats, so please come along to say hello and enjoy some delicious free welcome drinks courtesy of Diageo.
Come along and support your city…
