These 6 cocktail recipes made it to the finals

With these drinks, six Barkeeper have qualified for the second round at the final of the SWISS COCKTAIL OPEN 2023.

At the SWISS COCKTAIL OPEN 2023 on May 8, the best six of the 24 participants qualified for the final round. Here we present the six finalists and their cocktail recipes.

At the Swiss Cocktail Open, the focus is on the cocktail. The cocktail's appearance, taste, fragrance, aroma, aftertaste, texture and balance will be judged. In the second round, the six finalists are also given the opportunity to explain how their drink was created or to tell the story behind it. This has to happen within one minute. You might think that's too short, but it worked out perfectly in terms of time for each finalist to chat out of the closet and round off the repeated composition of their drink with the story of its creation, the philosophy or the impulse behind it.
