The Competition:

Round 1 – Speed

Our five contestants will have 15 minutes to create a cocktail of their choosing; using unique basket ingredients and present it to the judges. Judges will then vote and the contestant with the winning recipe will receive a 30 second advantage for Round 2.

Round 2 – Creative

Contestants will be challenged to create a custom, creative cocktail using ingredients they select from The Pantry in addition to the required basket items. There are no rules for these cocktails and creativity is the name of the game. Do our contestants have it what it takes to come up with a perfectly balanced, innovative cocktail in just 20 minutes?

The Winner:

Judge’s Choice – The cocktails in each round will be ranked in 5 categories; timing, presentation, taste, creativity/naming, and ingredient utilization. The contestant that earns the highest score will earn the 2024 Batson River ChopTails Champion trophy, bragging rights, along with a check for $500!

Crowd’s Choice – Vote for your favorite cocktails and crown a People’s Choice winner!
