“The best 5 days of my life” our Bar Challenge winner returns from New Orleans
Our Bar Challenge winner returns from the “best 5 days of his life” in New Orleans. Scott, from our Las Iguanas Bristol Harbourside, won our very own Bar Competition hosted at London Cocktail week in conjunction with Southern Comfort Black!
Using his imagination and knowledge, Scott created a cocktail based on the rich history of New Orleans and Southern Comfort. Scott then built and presented his cocktail, using Southern Comfort Black, to the judges and guests at the London Cocktail week. His knowledge and imagination shone through winning Scott his place on an all-expenses paid trip to New Orleans; the birthplace of southern comfort and a vital hub of cocktail history and drinking. Not to forget that his very own cocktail creation “Festival Fever” is also now on our menu in every restaurant.

Experiencing an all you can eat, classic New Orleans jazz brunch was described as Scott’s “most loved moment”. Sipping on Mimosas with a picturesque view whilst enjoying the live Jazz band and listening to stories from their waiter who has lived in New Orleans all of his life.
From learning about how alligators love marshmallows (news to us too!). To spontaneously getting a tattoo of the New Orleans symbol. This trip was really one to remember!
A few words from Scott…
“Words cannot explain the experience of New Orleans, what a place!! From meeting the creator of the cocktail that is the bane of all bartenders’ lives: the Pornstar Martini…to tasting exclusive, experimental Sazerac whiskies! From seeing one of only 50 albino alligators in the world to actually holding one! And who could forget the continuous jazz/blues playing wherever you walked. I couldn’t think of a more perfect place!! One off the bucket list for sure and would happily go back again and again! A massive thanks must go to the leaders of the beverages; Luke Neale and Katie Ebbs for offering a prize to visit a place I’d never thought I’d get to!”
“The trip has reinvigorated me into bar-tending and shown me what is on offer if you dedicate yourself to a profession that can clearly be so rewarding!”
