Jamie Oliver searches for next face of cocktailsBy Becky Paskin
Jamie Oliver is calling for professional and amateur bartenders to record their cocktail-making skills on video for the chance to be “the new face of online cocktail mixing”.
Launched through the new Drinks Tube channel, Jamie Oliver’s Search for a Cocktail Star with Bacardi is encouraging cocktail enthusiasts around the world to upload a video of themselves presenting their own drink to YouTube.
A judging panel comprised of drinks experts and the Drinks Tube team will select 10 semi-finalists to shoot a new cocktail using two products from Bacardi’s range.
TV chef Jamie Oliver will then select five finalists to go through to a public vote on the Drinks Tube channel.
The winner will be given an all-expenses-paid trip to London, plus a range of Jamie Oliver-themed prizes including a cocktail masterclass with fellow Drinks Tube presenter Simone Caporale.
Entries can be made through the Jamie Oliver website.
