Like Miss Universe, But Better!

Continued Coverage of the International Vodka Cup Cocktail Competition...

It was better than Miss Universe for me, anyway. Firstly the contestants were mostly men (though I must give a 'shout out' to the few kick-a** women bartenders in the group) and all were making cocktails. Hellooo...?

Finally, here is a list of those 22 bartenders who beat out the competition in their own countries, and won a trip to the Ice Hotel in Finland, to vie for the ultimate placement as world champion. Each created 3 cocktails that wowed judges enough to get them this far... (I'd say they deserve a toast!)

Hoath Zsolt – Hungary, Costin Gache – Romania, Massimo Goacchini – Italy, Steffan Lohr – Germany, Paul Lambert – Ireland, Joost Dikmans – Netherlands, Martin Manov – Bulgaria, Leszek Kraszewski – Poland, Cesar Hernandez – Mexico, Arnaldo Hernandez Semidy – Puerto Rico, Shay Coren – Israel, Harri Tormanen – Finland, Giorgos Petris – Greece, David Cordoba – England, Francisco Antonia – El Salvador, Branislav Kunik – Serbia, Gurkam Gumus – Turkey, Olga Markevich – Russia, Aaron Specht – USA, Chris Harrop – New Zealand, Malinchev Vladimir – Ukraine, Mathew Hewitt – Australia
