We’re extremely proud of Lex, as he held his own against 16 competitors from the best hotels, restaurants and bars in St. Lucia.
The contest saw each mixologist presenting a panel of international judges with two their very own inspired beverage creations.
They each had 10 minutes to prepare their drinks before a live audience – no pressure right? Points were awarded for ease of preparation, presentation and most importantly, taste.
Lex has been employed with the Bay Gardens Beach Resort & Spa for nearly a year now and his dynamic attitude and friendly disposition has made him a highly requested favourite of our guests.
Of course, it doesn’t hurt that he’s a talented bartender with years of experience in his field.
Lex was eager to participate in this year’s competition to get some vindication for his last appearance in the same competition a few years ago where he was unable to capture a top spot.
His two award-winning drinks were Avocado Sensation and Papaya Fusion, each of which incorporated local fruits/vegetables that are normally not considered for use in cocktails.
This kind of innovative thinking is what will continue to make Lex an even better bartender as he progresses in his career!
