Three barmasters. Three “secret” ingredients. One judge. Will Beijing’s confident mixologists fumble when faced with an unusual condiment or fruit? Or can they concoct a drink to impress one tough taster?

The Contestants: Jack Zhou, Groovy Schillers; Tao Chao, Beer Mania; Gordon Kutil, The Big Smoke Bistro

The Judge: Jerry Zheng, D&M Bar

Find out how they do in the February issue of the Beijinger magazine:
