Havana Club Grand Prix Denmark

29. februar 2016 @ 15:00 - 20:00

Welcome to the Havana Club Cocktail Grand Prix 2016!

This year we are seeking the true Heart and Soul of Havana through its music, its culture, and especially its rum. Havana is not only a legendary cocktail reference. It is the birthplace of numerous music movements that fuse aspects from other cultures with the Cuban, from its African roots and son cubano to rumba and salsa to cubatón and dubstep.

What makes each of these Cuban styles unique? Each was born from fusion: an incredible cultural exchange. The Cuban ability to adapt aspects of a variety of cultural influences -be it Spanish, African, Italian, Chinese, Caribbean, American, and more- is what makes Cuba culture a strong inspirational influence.

This coming year’s competition focuses on not only tradition, authenticity, and local ingredients, but on true Cuban inspiration via its encounters with other cultures throughout history. We call the resulting uniquely Cuban adaptations: HAVANA FUSION.

Your challenge for this 11th Havana Club Cocktail Grand Prix will be to create and execute a future classic that bonds the traditions of the Cuban cantineros and local Cuban ingredients with your personal Danish cultural experience: when Denmark meets Cuba!

The Danish final of the Grand Prix will take place on Monday 29th February 2016 at the Admiral Hotel in Copenhagen. On this day we will elect 1 winner to represent Denmark at the Grand Prix global Final in Havana on May 30 – June 4, 2016.

To submit your application for the Danish final, please send us before Sunday 24th January 2016 the following information:

– Name of your cocktail
– Picture of the cocktail
– Description of the cocktail + Your inspiration to create it

We will pre-select 40 recipes in January and visit you at your bar to watch you prepare the drink, and taste it! Out of those 40 applicants, 15 selected bartenders will then been given the chance to participate in the Grand Prix Danish local final on the 29th February!
