Two months ago, we told you about a cool viral campaign concocted by our friends over at Combier called “Shaker Faces“.
“Face it: you can learn a lot about a bartender by the way they shake a cocktail. And, whether they’re hard shakers or more musically inclined, our favorite bartenders all make a face when they shake. So, we set out across this fine nation to capture a few of our favorite Shaker Faces.o, we set out across this fine nation to capture a few of our favorite Shaker Faces.” — Combier USA.
Bartenders from all over the US competed in this virtual “shake-off” and, ultimately, Bill Norris from FINO in Austin, TX was named the champion. The Shaker Faces competition resumed again in July, at this year’s Tales of the Cocktail. Innocently sipping on a Bloody Mary while merely trying to cover the event for the next issue of Mutineer Magazine, one of Mutineer’s founding partners, JJ Bagley, found himself being coaxed into entering the competition.
Today, Combier announced the release of Match up #5 — JJ Bagley from Mutineer Magazine versus Moses Laboy of New York’s Nurse Betty. For sheer entertainment value, we have decided to post JJ’s video below. Why? Because, like JJ’s Shaker Face, “it’s mutinous.”
Make sure to visit the official Combier Shaker Face website and place your vote for Match up #5.
