After an absence of a couple of years, cocktail competition leagues are back with a vengeance in Edinburgh. The newly minted Scottish Society for Professional Bartenders have a four-round league starting later this month, while Tonic's modestly named Champions League (in association with Bacardi Brown-Forman Brands) kicked off last month. So far, we've had two rounds out of seven - there are points for the top five competitors and the best newcomer, with the guy/girl with the most points at the end of it all winning an iPad 2. Round one was Cazadores Tequila; this was my entry which made fourth place.
50ml Cazadores Añejo
15ml Balsamic Vinegar
10ml dark agave nectar
3 dashes Orange Bitters (I used Fee Brothers.)
Stir all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a twist of orange zest.
