Burger Battle boy Ahmed Kage presents his latest concept to take over the Midlands night life industry - CocktailXChange. Upping Birmingham's game in the boozing scene, this project is all about bringing together the cocktail mastery of world class mixologists with local Brummie bartenders, spreading the gospel of how those luscious libations are crafted.
The Bartender Exchange programme will open this Spring with a pop-up event welcoming bartenders from some internationally renowned bars to come and work with Birmingham's local haunts to create a tasting menu of liquor laced tipples. Each event will be dedicated to a specific spirit and will showcase some of the most innovative, favoured and creative concoctions through a multi-course sitting of cocktails with specially matched canapés and light bites. Rum, Vodka, Gin - whatever the poison, these nights are designed to spread the cocktail creed, and boy are we thirsty.
This bespoke boozing exhibition is set to hit the Midlands in May when the first sessions will take place at Bar Opus and the focus will be on Brugal Rum as the liquor base. Tickets are £50 for Early Bird and £60 Standard, with only a limited number available, which includes a welcome drink, 4 cocktails, canapé's, live entertainment & educational talks.
This event takes place on Saturday 9th May @ 18:30pm.
