We all knew it was going to happen. It was just a matter of time, well my friends the time is finally upon us, on Tueday 15th of May we will break our sullen lifelong oath of sobriety that we make every Monday morning to gather round and drink the best thing to come out of France since Jean-Claude Van Damme.
The wonderful Jenny Griffiths will be bringing down the green elixir of life that is Chartreuse along with many other expressions for a masterclass and competition with the classic 700 club twist of humour that we've all grown to love!
We will be sampling the great Green, the excellent Elixir and the *adjective beginning with y* Yellow.
Now I hope you guys have accountabili-buddies because this round of th...e competition is going to be a team round and you're going to have to pick your best bar fwiend to join you on a 2 person unstoppable bar team!
The comp will consist of two rounds, the first being a bijou and last word relay, where bartender A will make 1 cocktail as quickly as possible, run to the table, down it, and then tag out with Bartender B as soon as possible so they can smash their drink out, the team quickest to have their glasses empty wins the round!
The final round will be a twist on your classic cocktail presentation but the teams will have to work together to make two cocktails that compliment each other's serve so there's a lot of freedom for creativity there!
«But Dylan?!» I hear you shout «this seems like an awful lot of work, surely the prize would need to be rarer and an more appealing than a unicorn made of diamonds!» Well that is just what I've brought you ye of little faith, because if a bottle or two of Chartreuse wasn't enough to satisfy your unquenchable thirst for prizes, then this will! The teams in first and second will get a bottle to take home or finish in the bar, but the highest scorer of first place will get to join the very exclusive and very attractive friends of Chartreuse.
For those who may not know the Friends of Chartreuse are a crack commando unit who were sent to prison for a crime they didn't commit. These 700's then promptly escaped a maximum security prison and now meet up to debate, discuss and drink chartreuse. As well as the lucky few getting to go to snag trips to brand new distillery, the group are also on the forefront of exclusive tasting and rare bottles! #friendswithbenefits
So if you have a serve, and no one else can beat you, maybe you can message, the 700-club!
#Iloveitwhenacompcomestogether because you're all #700s
