If you know your Mojito from your Daiquiri and your jigger from your muddler then you could be exactly what Jamie Oliver’s Drinks Tube are looking for with our brand new competition – Jamie Oliver’s Search for a Cocktail Star with Bacardi. You could be the new face of online cocktail mixing – a prize money simply cannot buy – and join the band of experts already showcasing their talents on Jamie’s new YouTube channel. The winner will also be flown to London from anywhere in the world to enjoy a Jamie-inspired prize. It’s open to professionals and amateurs alike, whether you shake it up for family and friends only or if you’re in a top hotel bar what we’re really looking for is imagination, fun, skill and bags of personality.
Be creative, be inventive or just absolutely smash a classic, it’s up to you. All we ask is you use vodka, gin, rum, prosecco, vermouth or whiskey. Give it a twist, shake it, mix it or flame it up (safely please!) and make it look gorgeous. It also needs to taste nice so remember to keep a balance between the alcohol and the mixer.
Whether it’s on an iPhone or film set, make sure your recipe and process is clear in terms of both sound and vision. Also make sure it’s in English please. Edit it if you like, just make sure it’s between 2-4 minutes long: remember that you and the cocktail are the stars, not your filming or editing skills. For cocktail making tips and tricks – check out our Masterclass videos here!
Once you’re happy with your clip, upload it to your video account and send us the link along with your name, email address, phone number (we’ll only use these to get in touch with you) and country of residence, using the form below by 3pm UK time July 31st 2014. Please make sure you read the full terms and conditions before entering.
A judging panel, made up of experts from the cocktail world and Drinks Tube will then select 10 semi-finalists to shoot a new cocktail using up to two products from our partner’s range of drinks (don’t worry, we’ll reimburse you). From the semi-finalists, 5 will be selected by Jamie to go to a public vote on jamieoliver.com/drinkstube.
The winner will definitely be the envy of all, with an all-expenses paid trip to London. We will sort out return flights with transfers from wherever you are, a five-night stay in a London hotel, £500 spending money, three meals in a Jamie Oliver restaurant, a cooking lesson at Jamie’s cooking school ‘Recipease’, a cocktail masterclass with Simone, a golden cocktail shaker and a cocktail kit and also the chance to meet the faces behind Drinks Tube.
Meanwhile the 10 semi-finalists will win a basic cocktail kit while the 4 runners-up will each receive a golden cocktail shaker, a signed Jamie book and a basic cocktail making kit.
Show off your skills, be energetic, make us laugh if you like, most importantly, make us want to drink your cocktail.
Good Luck super – shakers!
