Botran Rum & Simone Caporale, one of the world’s foremost mixologists, together with Miami Spice, are holding the second Botran Rum Mixology Showdown in a search for the best original rum cocktail created by some of Miami’s greatest mixing minds. The competition will sort through hundreds of online recipe submissions, while a tasting jury evaluates each entry to determine the eight finalists.
These eight finalists will have the opportunity to mix up their drinks using Botran Reserva at the Mixology Showdown event at Lure Fishbar, the seafood dining hotspot in the Loews on South beach, in front of an audience of specially invited guests. The final eight will have the chance to concoct their clever creations for an esteemed panel of celebrity and industry judges.Â The winner will be crowned the maker of Miami’s best rum cocktail and be sent on an all-expense-paid trip to Botran’s Guatemala Distillery. The second place winner will receive a $2,000 cash prize.
