Southern Showdown Competition 2018

CREATE A DRINK THAT CAPTURES THE SPIRIT OF YOUR HOMETOWN

 

We’re asking bartenders to capture the spirit of their hometown in a cocktail, just like Southern Comfort captures the spirit of New Orleans.

The best 25 cocktails will be shortlisted – five in each region – and showcased for the Showdown State Tours. The winner from each region will then go head-to-head at the biggest party this side of the Mississippi, the Southern Showdown National Final, to determine who will be the ultimate champion and win a trip to NOLA.

The eventual winner will embark on a trip to New Orleans for the world’s premier cocktail festival, ‘Tales of the Cocktail’ and represent Australia in an International Final Showdown.

All finalists will be coached by a mentor – a unique opportunity to hone their skills.
