Enhance your Deighton Cup weekend by attending the 6th annual Cocktail Jockey Mixology Competition. Taking place on Friday, July 20th at Prohibition (Hotel Georgia), this celebrated lounge and bar is opening exclusively for Cocktail Jockey.
This year's official spirit is Mount Gay XO Rum and our competing mixologists will be using this to create their inspired variation on a classic cocktail: the Classic Rum Punch. Traditionally speaking, the cocktail contains 5 core components: Rum, sugar, fresh citrus, spices (nutmeg, cinnamon or cloves or tea), water for dilution.
We will welcome 10 contestants to this year's competition, made up of men and women competing from all over the province representing Vancouver Island, the Okanagan, and the Vancouver Mainland. Four expert judges will deliberate over these lavish libations and select a chosen winner to be awarded the Boothby Julep trophy.
Hosted and MC'd by our celebrated Cocktail Director, Alex Black, the competition will take place from 12pm - 3pm with a half-time break and at 3:30 our winner will be crowned and awarded their prize.
The Starting Gate is strictly a 19+ event. Tickets are non-refundable.
