SHAKEN FINALS RULES & RECIPES
Pop-Up Bar- Competitors will pick two former contestants each to assist them as notified on 11/23. They need to by announce their team 12/4 at 5:00pm.
Competitors will curate a pop up bar. Competitors will name it, decorate, staff it, theme it and run it like if it was their own a pop-up bar of their own design. Competitors will provide a menu of 4 cocktails that they will be serving to the guests.
Organizers will provide the competitors with $100 each towards helping with their budget for this along with two 6 foot tables, ice, 1:1 simple syrup, 1:1 honey syrup, lime juice, lemon juice, oj, pineapple juice, cranberry juice.
Competitors will have 60 minutes to serve the judges and guests a combination of their 2 original cocktails and 2 classics of the competitors choosing from Week 1 and/or Week 2 of the Semifinal Classic lists.
Competitors will be scored on Theme, Uniform, Service, Taste, People’s Choice and Marketing.
People’s choice from your “guests” of your pop up will being tallied into this rounds score for a total of 15 points by every chip collected will be multiplied by .15. Example: if you collect 65 chips you will receive 9.75 points and the other competitor receives 35 chips they will score 5.25 points.
Marketing will be a 5 point bonus for one competitor on how well you market your pop-up bar. We will be asking every paid person that comes into the door which bar they are here to see. If they say the name of competitor’s one bar then that competitor will get a tally mark. If they say the name of competitor’s two bar then competitor two will get a tally mark. If they say no bar or “Honey” then no competitor will get a tally. Whichever competitor has the most tallies at the end of round one will receive the 5 points marketing bonus.
Bob will have to approve spirits being used in this round. You are also responsible for any juices that aren’t lime, lemon, oj, pineapple or cranberry and syrups that aren’t 1:1 simple, honey 1:1.
Please submit your menu to Bob by noon on Tuesday November 6, 2016.

The competitors can rearrange the bar any way they like and use their own equipment they provide. Tins and glassware must start face down. Competitors will start the timer and stop the timer on their own.
Mystery Round- Final two contestants will compete head to head for 25 minutes. Each contestant and Bob will spin a mystery wheel with different mystery ingredients on it.
Both competitors must use the mystery ingredients selected in all cocktails from this point forward. If making more than one cocktail, you don’t need to include all three in the same drink. Mystery ingredients should be at the forefront of these cocktails. Competitors must make a minimum of one cocktail but may make as many as they like in this round as long as each cocktail contains at least one or more of the mystery ingredients. Volume of cocktails only gives you an advantage in the event of a tie score.
Ingredients/Equipment-All necessary ingredients will be provided to include: spirits, assorted bitters and shrubs, fresh squeezed juices, syrups, agave nectar, eggs, fresh herbs, fresh fruit and vegetables, and glassware. Different venues will have different equipment (shakers, jiggers, muddlers, etc…) so we recommend brining your own bar tools much like a chef brings his own knifes to work. Do not bring glassware.
