Made With Love@The Liberty Grand-Mon.,March 27th,2017


This was Toronto’s biggest cocktail competition held at the Liberty Grand. The best local barchefs were in action, eager to impress guests with their exquisite crafted creations!
A special mention to all of them who made it to the next round, the main competition was March 27th! The annual Made With Love competition toppled last year’s showcase and the competitive juices were in full force at the Toronto finals. The eighteen regional finalists, who had been selected at the qualification round held in February, competed for the titles of public’s choice and jury’s choice in an atmosphere that awakened the senses. The barchefs doubled with ingenuity not to let down the crowd of 600 cocktail lovers who showed their support to the local bartending scene.
