Theme 2024

The trends of beverage consumption are always evolving. It is now time to embrace the concept of LOW/NO ALCOHOL, and for good reason. From being a conscious health choice, the trend has emerged victorious so far by being readily accepted by bartenders universally.

This year's theme emphasizes the growing popularity of No/Low ABV cocktails, so we're introducing a new requirement for the final drink's alcohol content: the beverage must have a maximum ABV of 8% before dilution. Any drink submitted with an ABV exceeding 8% before dilution will be disqualified from the final competition. In order to achieve 8% ABV or lower in your recipe to align with the theme of the competition, check https://www.cocktailcalc.com/

MONIN Cup 2024 has now geared up! Get ready to craft alternative, innovative, and unforgettable drinks. We challenge you to elevate your beverage creations beyond mere taste, into the realm of storytelling.
