The Australian Hotels Association (WA) has announced the finalists in the 2024 WA’s Best Cocktail competition.

The 2024 AHA & Don Julio WA’s Best Cocktail competition attracted many entrants from across the state and the finalists were selected via public votes and mystery judge visits.

When casting their vote, customers were encouraged to consider taste, aesthetic, authenticity/creativity, the story behind the cocktail, price and promotion.

AHA(WA) CEO Bradley Woods said: “The cocktail contest not only celebrates the art of cocktail making, it also gives hospitality venues across WA a chance to shine.

“Only one person can be crowned cocktail champion, so finalists at next month’s mix-off will need to bring their A-game and flamboyance to the table.”

The finalists in WA’s Best Cocktail competition and their cocktails are:                                                              

  • L’Chaim (Fremantle) | Père Julio
  • Lobby Lounge, Crown Perth (Burswood) | Coco del Sol
  • Old Young’s Kitchen (Henley Brook) | Clearly Not Mary
  • Frisk. Small Bar (Northbridge) | Frosty Fruit                  

Finalists will compete in a live mix-off at the 2024 AHA Hospitality Expo on Tuesday 25 June, recreating their cocktail on stage and explaining the story behind each. The MC for the contest is industry stalwart and local bartender Brendan Scott Grey.
