Cocktails in Kamloops
Ever wondered what the Kamloops gold rush might taste like or what the city’s most eligible 19th-century bachelor might serve his favourite gal pals were he alive today?
This summer, a group of Kamloops bartenders has the answers.
Tourism Kamloops’ annual cocktail competition is back, with nine bars and restaurants around the city competing for top prize.
This year, however, organizers have thrown in a twist.
Using a maximum of six ingredients, each drink must draw its inspiration from Kamloops’ 200-year history.
While all nine drinks will be served throughout the summer, one cocktail will be eliminated from competition each week through an online vote at tourismkamloops.com/cocktail.
Votes can be cast daily from now until Monday, July 30.
Once there are only five drinks standing, they will be judged by an expert panel to chose this year’s grand champion.
