Hemingway's Manly winners of the first round of COVERED. Cocktail Battles hosted at Havana Beach.

More than a hundred cocktail makers and bar crew thronged to the opening round of the COVERED. COCKTAIL BAR BATTLES.

Spirits were high at Havana Beach as the teams lined up ready to take on the four challenges set for each bar to pit their skills against each other.

The sultry temperatures heightened the frantic tempo as enthusiastic teams shouted encouragement to the bar tenders given the task of designing, making, mixing and presenting an array of cocktails.

With four heats for every challenge, the evening moved along at a hectic pace as the teams mixed a mojito, a frozen cocktail, a classic twist and a cocktail created from a mystery box.

A new format for judging and viewing is being put together for Round 2 to make everyone’s experience even more enjoyable. 

Next round is Sugar Lounge on Monday night 6th February 2017 starting at 7pm.
