Meet SA's Hottest Bartender: 2013 http://www.cosmopolitan.co.za//play/hottest-bartender/meet-sas-hottest-bartender-2013
The search, which incorporated clubs and bars from SA’s major cities, took more than three months. Ten finalists were chosen and COSMO readers had the opportunity to vote for their favourite. Imaan Mac Quena from Jade Champagne Bar & Lounge and Johnny were in the top two, but it was Johnny who impressed the judges with his mixing skills on the night. Five guys and five girls got the nod to compete for the title of SA’s Hottest Bartender. The 10 finalists for 2013 were featured in the February issue of COSMO. The aim of the COSMOPOLITAN Hottest Bartender search was to find a bartender with the perfect combination of creativity and charisma, who has his or her craft honed to perfection. The competition is not judged only on looks: each entrant had to submit an original cocktail recipe.

The 10 finalists for Cosmo Hottest Bartender 2013 were:
Dillon Nuss from Taco Zulu, Durban
Le Riche Meyer from Carnival Court, Cape Town
Nicole Adams form Boulevard, Durban
Gabriella Trollip from Tiger Tiger, Cape Town
Domenico De Lorenzo from Molecular Bars, Johannesburg
Johnny Bezuidenhout from Café Caprice, Cape Town
Robyn Horwitz from Movida, Johannesburg
Imaan Mac Quena from Jade Champagne Bar & Lounge, Cape Town
Nancy Ellis, Hooters, Durban
Donovan Prince from Café Caprice, Cape Town

Guests were welcomed with drinks from Collison’s White Gold Brandy mixed by Thirst Bar Services, and tucked into canapés. MCs Rob Forbes and Fix from 5FM got the crowd revved up and kept the vibe pulsing throughout the evening.

Five hot guys and five gorgeous girls competed for the title, shaking up the same cocktail with their own individual twist in the final round for judges Clyde Ackerman (Thirst Bar Services), Andreline van Tonder (Associated Magazines), Caroline Sanders (Collison’s) and Lalla Hirayama (Vuzu). The competition is not only judged on looks: each entrant needed to submit a cocktail recipe, and had to prepare their cocktail in under four minutes.

The party carried on until the early hours with a special performance by Flash Republic, who kept all those attending rocking on the dance floor with their uplifting beats.

ABOUT MY COLLISON'S CREATION

Collison's White Gold with pressed apple juice, cinnamon-infused sugar and a hint of fresh lemon. Fine-strained, served straight up and completed with a biscuit crumble rim, rolled cinnamon, an apple fan and a lemon twist.

INGREDIENTS

Being the Hottest Bartender is not about being super-hot, or just a bartender, but about being a great ambassador for COSMO & Collison's White Gold Brandy.

I know how to create a vibe around me when I'm bartending and people want to be part of it.

ABOUT MY COLLISON'S CREATION

Collison's White Gold Brandy combined with Liquor 43, Madagascan vanilla, mixed, citrus-infused sugar syrup and freshly squeezed orange and lime. Served tall over ice and finished off with a vanilla and orange zest.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 shots Collison's
  • 1 shot Liquor 43
  • ¼ vanilla pod - muddled
  • Half a fresh orange
  • 2 fresh lime squeezes
  • 0.5 shot citrus-infused sugar syrup in orange, lemon or lime
  • Garnish: Orange zest and vanilla pod

METHOD

Add fresh vanilla for the contrast that the seeds bring to the drink, both from an appearance and texture point of view. Served tall over ice and finished off with the vanilla and orange zest.


WHY SHOULD I BE COLLISON'S HOTTEST BARTENDER?

I'm young and ambitious and being COSMO's Hottest Bartender would be fantastic exposure and a lot of fun. Meeting people, socialising and entertaining people are some of my favourite activities - being a bartender is perfect for that.
