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? In the spirit of Iron Chef, we put our bartenders to the test by announcing a secret ingredient, giving them ten minutes to mix, and finding out just how creative a cocktail can get.

The Contestants: Wendy Yang of Q Bar, Martin Aretino of The Local, and Bong Tang of Home Plate Bar-B-Que Sanlitun

The Judge: Kevin Song, d lounge

The Venue: d lounge
