Qingdao: Cocktail Master Class

In the afternoon of June 14, 2017, a cranberry cocktail masterclass was held in Qingdao, Shandong province. This was the first time for the event to be held in this city that was famous in the west for its beer. Around 30 local bartenders and mixologists attended the event that took place at the Room Lounge.

At the opening reception, Brooks Erickson from CMC delivered a short speech on cranberries’ unique health benefits, their diverse product forms and their applications. Master mixologist Eddy Yang demonstrated cranberries’ applications by preparing 3 different cocktails: Super Tea Time, Crane Spot and Tipsy Manhattan. He also shared his experience on how to purchase cranberry powder and cranberry bitters online. After his demonstration, four bartenders were invited to participate in a competition with their own cranberry cocktails which used cranberry juice, cranberry puree, dried cranberry and cranberry powder as ingredients. The one who received the most applause won a shaker as award from CMC.

On the night, Eddy was invited to be guest bartender at the Room Lounge to serve the three cranberry cocktails to the patrons. The bar promoted this event on Wechat. This helped bring in quite a number of regular customers who came especially for the new cocktails which became the best sellers for that night.
