Creations will be judged on their originality, creativity, and taste. Judges will look for passion, expert knowledge, distinct ingredients and the way competitors incorporate these elements in their cocktail creation.

Every guest will receive a «dogtag» necklace. After having tasted the competitors' cocktails, the guests will have to give their «dogtag» to their favorite BarChef.
