Rhuby - Pink Your Drink - 2014 London
2014 saw Pink Your Drink hit Sweden, USA and the UK. The UK National final was held on the opening day of London Cocktail Week at Callooh Callay, one of the World's Top 50 Bars. With female bartenders from around the country entering their RHUBY drinks recipes online, the top 8 were selected by a tasting panel to attend the final for Pink Your Drink UK 2014.
One by one, the girls presented 3 drinks. The first, their RHUBY cocktail that won them a place in the final, followed by a RHUBY twist on a classic, then a signature cocktail to express themselves and their individual personalities.
The panel with the difficult task of judging this year's high standards were:
Ash Bovey - Bartender at Milk Thistle in Bristol and RHUBY UK ambassador
Chris Dennis - London-based Cocktail Bartender Extraordinaire
Sandrae Lawrence - Founder of Cocktail Lovers
Richard Wynne - Callooh Callay
Jolene Cadwell - RHUBY Global Ambassador
Tommy Keeling - IWSR
After a long exciting day or mixing, shaking and stirring, Sian Ferguson from Heads and Tales Bar in Edinburgh took first place, winning herself a trip to Sweden to see the home of Rhuby.
