CASTING CALL: THE U.S. BARTENDERS’ GUILD SEEKS THE NATION’S MIXING STAR

CASTING CALL: THE U.S. BARTENDERS’ GUILD SEEKS
THE NATION’S MIXING STAR

Lights! Camera! Action! Top Bartenders Compete in the          

USBG Mixing Star National Finals Sponsored by DISARONNO

 

The measure of a great bartender is more than what he or she serves up in a glass. It’s the entire experience shared with the guest – charisma, presentation, showmanship, armchair psychology (and, of course, the drink itself). On Thursday, July 18, the USBG, in partnership with DISARONNO Liqueur, challenges the nation’s top bartenders to show off what they’ve got in front of the camera in The Mixing Star finals, taking place during the 2013 Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans.

 

WHAT:            Not just another cocktail competition, the USBG Mixing Star National Finals sponsored by DISARONNO seeks a bartender with “stage presence” and “star quality” – the consummate mixologist who exhibits both technical skill and embodies the element of performance and entertainment. Maybe it’s their performance behind the bar – their shake, their greeting, their bottle flip; maybe it’s their innate social skills – they don’t just mix drinks, they mix people.

 

WHEN:            Thursday, July 18, 2013, 4:00 p.m.  – 8:00 p.m.

 

WHERE:         Hotel Mazarin, 730 Bienville Street, New Orleans, LA 70130

 

PRIZE:            For weeks, hopeful candidates from across the nation have competed in regional heats for the opportunity to compete in the grand finals. With a trip to the Venice Film Festival in Venice, Italy and an opportunity to show their mixology skills to some of the biggest names in film, these finalists will pull out all the stops to show why they are the Mixing Star.

  • Carley Dunavant – Austin
