(There are obvious puns I could drop with the word cocktail but choose not to on this occasion!)
The gang at Ron De Jeremy have announced ‘The Spirit of Ron’, which is the first Ron de Jeremy Cocktail Challenge.
Cuban born Master blender Francisco “Don Pancho” Fernandez, who is the creater of the smooth Ron de Jeremy taste, is coming to Europe in June and we’ve been told they are offering the rare chance to meet a man who has developed the world’s finest rums for the past 50 years.
If you fancy a chance to meet the man and learn all about the rum, all you have to do is create a cocktail worthy of his name using Ron de Jeremy rum and your imagination. I would enter myself but I think my imagination may be too crazy for the competition.
Before you start raiding the kitchen for random ingredients, unfortunately its only limited to bartenders in the UK (worth getting a part time job in a barfor)
If you want to take part, here’s what you need to do:
Send a picture and recipe of your drink, along with your name, phone, email and bar you work for to the good people at:
If I had a glamorous assistant, this is where I would hand over to her…”tell them what they can win”
You could be jetting off for an Amsterdam good time (in Amsterdam) with a private dinner with the man himself Don Pancho on 3rd June
Return flights and hotel taken care of (Ron wouldn’t leave you on the street)
A chance to participate in Don Pancho’s Rum Masterclass
As if thats not enough you’ll even get your drink in Ron de Jeremy’s 2013 calendar
Here comes the serious info:
The deadline is May 22 and Don Pancho will be the judge and jury
-Open to all bartenders working in Europe
-All entrants must be over 18 years old
-All recipes and photos may be used by One
Eyed Spirits for its brand communication
