World's Greatest Bartender
The "World's Greatest Bartender" has been crowned! Frederic (Eric) V. Martinez, a bartender in Makati City, Philippines has triumphed over "eight of the best mixologist from around the globe" to take the title for a year. Eric wins 10,000 USD and bragging rights for a year.
I'm not sure what drink Eric is making in this photo, but it seems to be quite an achievement from the looks of things.
Eric's favorite drink is beer, and he likes to make Bahama Mama's.
(Adapted from Eric's recipe)
1/2 oz. Gold Rum
1/2 oz. Coconut Rum
1/2 oz. Banana Liqueur
1/2 oz. Grenadine
1 oz. Orange Juice
1 oz. Pineapple Juice
(This drink sounds horrible to me, but you can't argue with success)
