Sign up to participate at the AFMASS Cocktails Competition

The 2023 competition is open to practicing cocktails enthusiasts, mixologists and bartenders from Eastern Africa

Cocktails are in vogue across Africa and the World, as young consumers seek new ways to add some new tastes, vibe and colour to their palettes!!

The AFMASS Cocktails Competition at the AFMASS Food Expo promotes excellence and creativity in the art (and science) of cocktails making and thereby advancing the cocktail making profession in Africa.

The competitors at the competition will be judged by a Panel of Judges with vast experience in the mixing of cocktails, with each entry evaluated on originality and creativity in the use of ingredients and the use of technical skills. They will also be judged on cleanliness and overall presentation and taste of the final cocktail.

Cocktail enthusiasts, amateur mixologists and bartenders are invited to submit their ideas and concepts to participate at the AFMASS Cocktails Competition 2023.

By signing up to participate in competition, each entrant will present to a regional and international audience and a judging panel that will bring out the best out of them, plus a chance to win and grab the headlines in Kenya and across the World.
