We’ve got some fun Ocho updates for you this month!
From our importers in Greece:
Last month, the National Classic Cocktail Competition took place in Athens, during the HO.RE.CA trade show and the first two winning cocktails were made with Ocho Reposado! In fact, these two were the only cocktails made with Ocho and the only two, among twenty in total cocktails, which they included tequila as the base spirit.
Alexandros Previstas, head bartender at Bardot along with Stavros, took the first place, with the cocktail “Thyme Mandarita” made with Ocho Reposado, thyme syrup, agave syrup, lime juice and tangerine.Alexandros will travel this year to South Africa to represent Greece in the Global Bartending Competition with that cocktail.
Anastasis Vizyinos, who mixed Ocho Reposado with muddled passion fruit, agave syrup and aromatic bitters, won the second prize.
