On Friday September 14th, 2012 Dodgy Dock hosted the “Olympic Cocktail Mixing Games” to honor all the athletes who represented Grenada at the 2012 London Olympic Games. Bartenders from various hotels in Grenada were invited to compete to make the best “Respect the Nutmeg” and “Gear Shifter” drinks.
The search was on for the best cocktail and the participants did not disappoint. Using fresh fruit sponsored by the Marketing and National Importing Board, local rums from Westerhall Rum Distillery, spices and other ingredients the participants blended, shook and stirred varying combinations to produce some innovative cocktails.
At the end, Chrystel Connaught of Kalinago Beach Resort and Dereck Cuffe of True Blue Bay Resort won the prizes for the best Respect the Nutmeg and Gear Shifter drinks respectively. They each received five hundred dollars cash, a gold medal, trophy and bragging rights as the drinks will be registered with the patent office and made available through the Grenada Hotel and Tourism Association.
