The United States Bartenders' Guild (USBG) has been busy recruiting the top mixologists in the United States in order to enter their most inventive and elegant elixirs into The 6th Annual Cocktail World Cup competition (hosted by 42BELOW Vodka). Next step is for the ten winning cocktail entries to compete in a Love, Drinks and Rock N' Roll-themed regional competition during the week of February 22, to take place in 13 cities around the United States. Miami is one such city.

The Miami competition will be held on Tuesday, February 23, at Florida Room in the Delano Hotel. USBG representative Laura Cullen, Top Chef Jeff McInnis of DiLido Beach Club Ritz-Carlton, and former Cocktail World Cup contestant John Lermayer will be the judges.

Short Order will be there to bring you the riveting blow-by-blow

account -- oh no, wait, I got mixed up. That's what we'll be doing when

we cover the 4th Annual Cocaine World Cup competition. We'll be providing gripping sip-by-sip coverage for the 6th Annual Cocktail World Cup.

Come on down and watch the action. I'm sure the folks from 42BELOW will

be happy to hand out samples of their vodka (although I should probably

note that there is no announced plan of doing so at the moment).

The video from last year is here.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
