Tuesday the 3rd of November was the second event as part of the Belfast Mouthing Off Series which sees Belfast businesses go head to head in an epic battle and Yelpers get to put on their judging hats and decide who’s best. The Cocktail-Off saw 8 Belfast Cocktail crafters face off at AM:PM Rooftop Terrace. 48 Yelpers were chosen as judges and they each got to sample beautifully crafted cocktails from each establishment.
There were some confused palets after the three hour long sample session but eventually, under the watchful eyes of business owners and competing mixologists, the judges picked their Cocktail-Off Champion’s for 2015. Zen came out with the most votes with their clipped Wing Royale made by Jonathan Shaw. Zen beat Bootleggers in to second place and edged out new boys Sweet Afton & The Perch in to joint third. In between the cocktails judges were given the opportunity to dress up and get snaps in the custom built MR PhotoBooth NI. There were also generous prizes donated by Bacardi for the best social media picture and best Yelp image.
This really was an epic showdown with all the Belfast Cocktail Bars taking part showcasing the magic they have to offer.
