  • [01] Greek barman collects gold in World Cocktail Championship

  • [01] Greek barman collects gold in World Cocktail Championship

    ANA-MPA -- A Greek barman won gold for the best cocktail in the 39th World Cocktail Championship, sponsored by the International Bartenders' Association.

    The winning entry, among 56 from throughout the world, was by Panagiotis Govatsos, who named it "Skyfall II".

    Speaking to ANA-MPA, Govatsos said Skyfall II "captures all of natures aromas, from fruit and herbs to spices and fresh aromas." He explained that his entry to the competition was chosen because it was "based on aromas and tastes that bring Greece to mind; its main ingredient is the hibiscus liqueur, which releases a fabulous aroma which, combined with the vodka I used, gives a balanced in taste, aromas and colour."

    Govatsos was born in California but his family moved to Monemvasia, the historic town of southern Peloponnese, where he lives and works. He began his career at 16 years of age as assistant to a waiter and then barman.

    He was one of three representatives of the Greek Barmen's Association. Besides his entry in the classic cocktail category, Constantine Frantzis competed in Flairtending (freestyle), where he came in 21st, and Panagiotis Pallis, who competed in the non-alcoholic category. The competition took place in Prague in August.

    Skyfall II's recipe is as follows:

  • 4.0 cl Grey Goose La Poire

  • 3.0 cl Giffard Pampl' Hibiscus

  • 4.0 cl Finest Call Passion Fruit Puree

  • 2.0 cl Monin Pink Graprfruit Juice

  • 3.0 cl Lime Juice, Fresh

  • 3.0 cl Perrier

    Garnish: Blueberry, cranberry, grapefruit, passion fruit, pineapple leaf, carrot, turnip, chili pepper and mint leaf.

    Method: Shake
