Cayman Cocktail Week, which takes place October 19 through 26, is an annual celebration of all things alcohol. From creative cocktails to bartender competitions, attendees are treated to some of the best Cayman has to offer.
This year, The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman Culinary Studio will be hosting a workshop on Zacapa Rum with Lorena Vasquez, a master blender from Guatemala. This hands-on workshop will explain the spirit’s aging process, demonstrate how it is made and share a number of tips for how to best enjoy it.
Don’t miss out on the fun-filled “Muddled” competition (Cayman’s cocktail version of the popular TV show, “Chopped”), which takes place at Barolo Lounge. Sit back and watch as professional bartenders make their magic and a panel of judges chooses the best cocktail. Since you and your friends are experts in these matters, you should definitely sample the goods and get behind your favourite.
If a boozy Sunday brunch with the girls is more your speed, then reserve a table at Karoo for an all-inclusive meal that comes with a cocktail station of bottomless spirits, sparkling wine and beer. Enjoy the beautiful waterfront setting at Camana Bay whilst you feast and drink away a fun-filled afternoon.
Those seeking a sophisticated answer to the pub crawl, need to sign up for the intimate Cocktail Tour, which takes guests on a themed night of dress-up to four mystery bars. Don’t worry about driving! You will be chauffeured around like A-list celebrities.
