The SWISS COCKTAIL OPEN is the largest cocktail competition in Switzerland and takes place this year for the third time. The format motivated also this year Barkeeper from all over Switzerland to submit their cocktail recipes.
By the end of March, more than 50 recipes had been received, which have now been anonymously evaluated by an expert jury. The best 24 recipes will now be premixed personally by the bartenders on May 8, 2023, at Halle 550 in Zurich-Oerlikon. Then it will be decided which is the best cocktail in Switzerland in 2023.
