Proof Cocktail Competition

Round II of the Collective Cocktail competition, starring local bartending talent, Goslings Rum, and Miss Drew, was a success. All proceeds from the events went to Women’s Crisis Services of Waterloo Region, which helps women and their families to move beyond violence.


The Competition

The bartenders were tasked with crafting three cocktails in under four minutes, which they would find out just before they began. Participants included The Berlin, Red House, Harmony Lunch, and even our very own, Steven. In the end, Dan Reiss from Grand Trunk Saloon took home the coveted bartending kit.


Going once, going twice, SOLD!

After each round, the drinks were evaluated by our three judges and a winner was declared for each round. Following, the drinks made by each competitor were auctioned off. One patron started off the bidding at $100, which was incredible to see. Everyone was having fun without forgetting why we were all there in the first place.

Dark’n Stormy Delights

Aside from the drinks, let’s talk about the snacks for a moment. There was complimentary “Dark ‘n Stormy” popcorn, which combined the Goslings Dark n’ Stormy cocktail with ginger and a hint of lime. Picture caramel popcorn, but a million times better.
