Winning cocktail comps at Genuine Liquorette

It’s not like your two fave Aussie gals to back down from a competition, so when we headed along to Genuine Liquorette one Monday evening and heard there was a cocktail comp we were taking things seriously.

Before we get to that part of the evening though, we have to start with the warmup. Lead by one of Liquorette’s charismatic bartenders, us, along with a group of other influencers, made a selection of classic cocktails. Both of us used to work in bars when we were at Uni, but we still had a whole lot of fun creating some of the world’s most loved cocktails, including a Negroni, an espresso martini and a mojito.

Everything we needed was laid out in front of us, from stainers and spoons to garnishes and glasses. Each round one of the influencers was invited behind the bar to lead the cocktail class along with the bartender, before we all followed and created our own after (with a little help if needed).

Halfway through the class we stopped for a PIZZA BREAK, where we chowed down on some of Liquorette’s famous pizza. Our favourite was the ‘Shrooms pizza, with stracciatella, chanterelle and summer black truffle on a gorgeously chewy pizza base. We’d definitely recommend ordering a pizza or two when you pop past here.

After the break and whipping up a couple more classics, it was time for the COCKTAIL COMPETITION. In pairs, we all had six minutes to come up with a showstopping creation using the ingredients in front of us. Though the competition was tough, naturally we won, putting together a summery drink inspired by our time in Ibiza last summer.

Held upstairs in the cocktail bar, Liquorette’s masterclass is being held again next month on the 4th of March, so if you’re keen to get creative with your spirits check out the details here. Otherwise, you can pop past the funky venue any night of the week for some crafty beers, crazy cocktails served in sliced-open beer cans and delicious pizza at their Fitzrovia location.
