Last week saw ladies battle it up to victory and clinch top spots during the final heat of the ABSOLUT professional challenge held at Galileo Lounge, Westlands. Going against tradition of the male dominated field, the ladies proved themselves in the last heat that was evidently the toughest.
The competition attracted 4 female contenders and 9 male contenders. Westlands and Nairobi CBD Area were well represented; Tribeka Lounge, Mojos Bar, Mercury Lounge ABC, Aqua Blu Lounge, Seven Seafood & Grill, Aqueous Bar, and Galileo Lounge.
First and second place were a tie. David Kinyua from Tribeka Lounge with his ABSOLUT Camilla cocktail, and Evelyn Wairimu from Mercury Lounge ABC with her signature cocktail ABSOLUT Ginger Diva, emerged tops.
Inspired by sweet seductive local music, Dorah Mkamwangala wowed the judges to take second place with her cocktail ABSOLUT Sweet & Spicy Seduction. Susan Mugure, put on quite a show with her interesting ABSOLUT Slimming Possibility cocktail inspired by the need to have and pride in a slim figure.
Third place went to Stephen Njoroge from Seven Seafood & Grill, inspired by the love of Mojitos by Nairobian, he found the need to add a new twist to the market with his ABSOLUT Ginger Fizz.
Tuesday 10th December 2013, will see the best of Nairobi battle it out at the Grand Finale, which will be hosted at Mercury Lounge Westlands.
