World Class Cocktails

SA’s best bartenders are competing for the World Class Bartender of the Year 2014, making some excellent cocktails in the process



Oliver Cole, bartender at Café Caprice, recently won Cape Town’s Round 2 Regional Finals of the Diageo Reserve World Class Bartender of the Year 2014, which means he has a chance at the world finals later this year. This is his winning cocktail, which he invented using Mystery Box items:


Father Figure



1 shot Talisker whisky

1,5 shots orange juice

0,5 shot sugar syrup/gomme (cooled)

0,5 shot Campari

0,5 shot Jasmine tea



Mix 1 cup sugar and 1 cup boiling water



  1. Add all ingredients to a shaker with ice and shake.
  2. Fine strain into a decorative wine glass.



To keep abreast of the competition, and to root for Oliver, follow World Class on Facebook and Twitter.
