Qualifications cup named ‘Bartenders of modern mixology – MONIN Cup’ was held at Hotel Croatia in Cavtat, organized by PPD Croatia and Nekić Barology school.
From each town in Croatia, four best bartenders were chosen to finale, which will be held in City Center West in Zagreb. Qualifications were also held at Rijeka, Zagreb, and Split.
Bartenders are no older than 27 years, and Dubrovnik masters are Nikša Beloč from Hotel Hilton Imperial, Luka Kralj from Art Cocktail Dubrovnik Bartenders School, one charming lady – Andrea Brković representing Banje Beach Bar, and Božo Mortižija from Caffe bar Pergola. They’re the best ones among 13 competitors in Dubrovnik.
The bartender who wins in Zagreb will be presenting our country in World Cup MONIN in Paris, and we keep our fingers crossed for our bartenders!
