Lagos Cocktail Week, showcasing “the uniqueness of Nigeria’s cocktail culture,” is back for its fourth edition.
According to the organisers, the six-day event, which kicked off on Monday, is “focusing on the ever-evolving cocktail culture both locally and internationally, whilst also informing on the global trends coupled with lots of great entertainment”.
This year’s event features a garnish course with Culinary Academy and the competitive Bar Battle wherein bar reps select the spirits they will work with during the competition through a ballot system.
“Research shows that access to industry professionals is what is lacking, hence this year we are proud to introduce a mentorship programme for people who are in the Mobile Bar Catering Services.
“Lastly, in a bid to stay true to our heritage we have made it compulsory for the participating bars to have local recipes and ingredients on the Lagos Cocktail Week menu,” said Lara Rawa, founder and CEO of Eventi Cocktails.
