Attention Canberra shakers and stirrers who spend their nights mixing up the best cocktails in town, WE WANT YOU!

We know that Canberra has some of the best cocktails makin’ talent around and we want to see it in the OutInCanberra Spirit of the City competition. This month, we’re embarking on a city-wide search to see who can create Canberra’s most unique cocktail.

The competition is open to all bartenders (and bars) within the ACT. The premise is simple: create a cocktail that best captures the spirit of Canberra and your venue, send through the recipe and description, and throw it onto your bar’s list for a month.

Not only will your customers get to experience this seasonal delight, but the top three, as voted by the public, will create their concoctions in front of a buzzing crowd and judging panel at the Spirit of the City event in August (more details to come!).

Just in case you missed it, check out our Facebook live feed from the night we launched Spirit of the City at the ACT Australian Hotels Association Awards at QT Hotel on Monday 17 July.

As proud promoters of Canberra’s entertainment and hospitality industries, we’re really excited to see some of our best local talent on display across the competition – so what are you waiting for? Sign up now using that form below and show us what you’ve got!

Entries close 9 am Friday 5 August.
