Basically every bartender in NYC (and some from out of town) worth their salt got their heads shrunk at Otto's Shrunken Head last night at the UK-born tiki cocktail competition affectionately called: It's a Rematch!!!!! Beeyatch!!!!! 23 bartenders paid $100 each to the kitty and threw down in a race to make 10 tiki drinks in under four minutes. The winner took home all the money in the pot. In a heated battle full of drama, Scott Marshall (of 1534 and Boston's Drink) dazzled the judges by completing the task three minutes. He took home the loot and a cocktail tiara.
Local favorites Giuseppe Gonzalez (Painkiller) and Phil Ward (Mayahuel) were disqualified, Gonzalez for committing the ultimate party foul—breaking a glass in the ice—and Ward walked himself out, saying after he was "too drunk" to finish his round. We asked a few of the mixologists in the house what their winning strategies were. Jane Danger (El Cobre) advised "not crying" and Kenta Goto (Pegu Club) said he was sticking to a traditional Zombie recipe—but we secretly think it was having the crowd chant "Domo Arigato Mr. Roboto" during his round.
