Blue Iguana Cocktail CompetitionAug 5th, 2008 | By admin | Category: Director's Blog
Sunday afternoon at Bed Restaurant in Grand Cayman, has just been the scene of an unusual fundraiser for the Blues. Cayman Distributors hatched the idea, Bed provided the venue. Eleven notable bartenders and other independent mixologists stirred, shook and blended their ideas of the ultimate Blue Iguana cocktail, in front of a discerning and enthusiastic audience. One of each creation was passed to a panel of five judges, a second was auctioned on the spot. Bids tended higher as the afternoon progressed, but peaked sharply at $200 for Stefan Morgan’s vibrant blue creation. Balancing presentation, taste and practicality of production, the judges agreed with the auction bidders, and the official Blue Iguana Cocktail for the season has been inaugurated! “Stefan’s Blue Iguana” should be arriving in bars throughout the Cayman Islands in the near future. Cayman Distributors will pre-bottle the spirit components of the drink, to make it a quick mix at the bar. All profits from sales of the premixed Stefan’s Blue Iguana will go to the Blue Iguana Recovery Programme, on top of the $2,000 plus raised at the even itself. Thank you, Cayman Distributors, Bed, all who participated, and all who will participate – every official Stefan’s Blue Iguana drunk, will help the Blues!
