Imbibe’s cocktail competition winners round-up

Amber Blood wins Britvic’s Pepsi Max

Bang in the midst of London Cocktail Week, Amber Blood of everyone’s favourite party bar, the London Cocktail Club, was crowned winner of Britvic’s Pepsi Max cocktail competition.

The brief was to create a twist on a Cuba Libre (using Pepsi Max, of course) and to create an original cocktail using Britvic brands.

Blood’s She’s My Cherry, a combination of Bacardi, Pepsi Max, Cherry Heering, lime, vanilla and chocolate bitters came out on top. Her original cocktail Ginger Ninja used Britvic Ginger Ale, Gosling’s rum, Finlandia Vodka, Wray and Nephew Rum and lemon.

‘I took my inspiration for She’s My Cherry from the flavour profile of Pepsi Max, choosing ingredients which I knew would complement it; chocolate, cherry and cola work well together and I’m delighted that the judges agreed,’ gushed Blood. ‘Ginger Ninja was developed when I was feeling a bit poorly – the combination of ginger and lemon is a perfect pick-me-up and it tastes fantastic!’
