20 boozy photos of Toronto's huge cocktail competition

Posted by Jen Hunter / March 31, 2015

toronto cocktail competitionMade With Love has quickly established itself as Canada's largest cocktail competition, with regional finals attracting packed crowds of thirsty revellers. This year's Toronto finals added food into the mix, with the twenty competing bartenders given the option of working with a chef to create a food and drink pairing to hand out to the 800 some odd guests in attendance.

After four gruelling hours of pumping out elaborate concoctions, Nick Incretolli of The Tavern on George walked away with the people's choice award, while the judging panel (including last year's highest vote getter Michael Mooney and BarChef owner Frankie Solarik) selected Dan Tavares' (Mr. Flamingo) drink as the best of the night.
