This summer Grapevine are challenging bartenders and mixologists across Cumbria to get creative, step out of the shadows at the back of bar, and into the limelight to create Grapevine’s ‘Cocktail of the Year 2019’.

We are looking for something unique, eye catching and imaginative; whether it’s a twist on a classic cocktail or something new. It is entirely up to you.

Competition starts 1st June 2019 - ends 1st July 2019

Firstly you will be judged on the look of the cocktail along with the ingredients used in the cocktail and finally the name of the cocktail. So get creative! 


 Post 3 x pictures of your cocktail on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook

Our panel of judges will critique all entries on the presentation of the cocktail, the name of the cocktail and of course most importantly the ingredients. So get creative… It will then be narrowed down to 5 finalists who will be invited down to our development kitchen to show off their talent. A professional video will be produced by our in-house videographer which will be published online and across all social media platforms, marketing you and the business you work for. Our Judges will spend the day with the 5 finalists, who will enjoy lunch, a tour of the facility and a chance to meet the Grapevine and Caterite teams.
