Instead, the bar was playing host to 15 hopefuls, vying for the chance to represent Lebanon at the global final of the Diageo Reserve World Class competition in South Africa this September.Lebanon has been participating in the global bartending competition since 2011, but had to skip last year's contest when the security situation deterred international judges from coming to the country. Relaunched in a calmer climate, this year's event was judged by Lebanese Chef Maroun Chedid, along with Diageo Reserve World Class Bartender of the Year 2013, Spain's David Rios and Diageo Reserve World Class Bartender of the Year 2010, Slovakia's Erick Lorincz.One man who understood what was at stake for these aspiring mixologists was judge Erick Lorincz.Asked what the judges are looking for, Lorincz explained that the bartenders have to promote their cocktail and themselves.Ghostine, who was accompanied by oriental music, split his cocktail into two, so he could present it in both the Japanese tradition; shared from a single bowl and the Chinese tradition; drunk from separate cups.
