Last night, we were treated to a fun night at the Shimmy Beach Club, as Cosmopolitan magazine, in partnership with Collison’s White Gold Brandy, announced the winner of their South Africa’s hottest bartender competition. We drank cocktails, ate good food and mingled with Cape Town‘s who-is-who.
The more than three months search, saw five girls and guys, who were chosen from clubs and bars from around the country vying for the crown. Each entrant had to submit an original recipe.The judges were looking for a bartender with the perfect combination of mixing skills and charisma, and of course they had to be easy on the eyes;-D Johnny Bezuidenhout from Cafe Caprice walked away with a hefty R20 000 cash. I wish we were given a taste of the winning cocktail.
