The Emperor's Challenge

| July 7, 2011 | Parties

On June 27, 30 of South Florida's most renowned bartenders gathered at the Mondrian's Sunset Lounge for the first ever "Emperor's Challenge" hosted by Mandarine Napoléon, the recently relaunched liqueur made of mandarins and 10-year-old aged cognac. Attendees enjoyed complimentary Mandarine Napoléon cocktails as they watched the bartenders take on a number of unexpected challenges. The winning team, Gaston Cabrera (Baru Urbano), Marco Balza (Baru Urbano) and Nick Nistico (Buddha Sky Bar/AMG Restaurants), each went home with the famed Jim Meehan bartending kit and a bottle of the very limited Mandarine Napoléon XO.
