Last month can actually be dubbed Bacardi month here in the country since Bacardi has been very visible supporting events organized by Philippinebartending.com and Liquid Concepts.
Bacardi Myxology University Tour – This event’s main objective is to make the students aware of the brand and how to use it in coming up with mouth watering and creative concoctions. The participating schools included: Polytechnic University of the Philippines Sta. Mesa and San Juan branch, Lyceum of the Philippines University Manila, College of St. Benilde, Systems Plus College of Cubao and University of Santo Tomas. The seminar was conducted by our guest speaker Mr. Arijit Bose from India.This tour was highlighted by seminars conducted to professional practitioners as well.
Mixology goes Molecular by Liquid Chef Neil Ocampo – This event formally launches the concepts behind Molecular Mixology via a 2 day workshop which was attended by bartenders, business owners and enthusiasts alike. Molecular Mixology is an offshoot of Molecular Gastronomy which has Chef Ferran Adria of El Bulli as one of its proponents. This concept of Mixology simply takes the creativity of the bartender here in the Philippines to another level. Some concepts discussed were emulsification, spherification, gelatification, smoking, and the use of lidui nitrogen. Bacardi Rum was used as the base ingredient for some of the cocktails created.
Bacardi Myxology Competition for Students – As part of the output of the seminar, each university as well as other students were tasked to make their original concoction in 5 minutes while talking infront of the judges. This competition simply makes the students aware that part of the bartender’s profession is to be able to communicate properly to the guest how their concoction is being done. Another aspect of this competition lets the students explain how they will market their cocktail in a bar that they will work in.The participating schools include: University of Santo Tomas, Polytechnic Univeristy of the Philippines San Juan and Sta. Mesa, Systems Plus College of Cubao and Lipa City Colleges.
