The XI Costa Adeje Cocktail Competition will be a national classification event
With the backing of the Adeje departments of economic development and of tourism, and organised by the Tenerife Barman Association, the Adeje Centre for Tourism Development – the CDTCA – will host the XI Costa Adeje Cocktail Competition which is also a classification event for the national championships.
The year all the action is concentrated in one day with different classification and section events and two master classes given by European experts all happening on Friday April 29th. The public are welcome to attend during the day, from 4pm – 9.30pm, with winners announced at the end of the day.
The day will actually begin with master classes under the watchful eyes of Vito Calculli and Marco Caldone, both top class experts. Later on Antony Serra, will demonstrate his ‘flair’.
The most important competitive events will be to chose the best cocktails and those who will go forward to represent Tenerife at national level. That competition starts at 7pm, while the IV Gin and Tonic contests for the Schweppes and Gin Rutte trophies start at 6pm.
Adeje local development councillor, Manuel Luis Méndez Martín, commented, “the Costa Adeje Cocktail Competition has become one of the most prestigious events in the Canarian cocktail calendar and nationally, bringing together people from the Canarian hotel and bar sectors.” He added that it was important that the “Costa Adeje tourism label continues to have these kind of references which complement the overall offer to visitors, particularly in the fields of gastronomy and leisure such as those promoted by this competition.
“We are delighted that almost all the hotel schools in the islands will be represented here and that we are able to continue to contribute to the professional training of our young bar personnel in the Canaries”, he concluded.
