Asahi Rising Stars Cocktail Competition

On Tuesday 12 October, four young cocktail makers will battle it out at the Park Plaza Riverbank London in a bid to be crowned the winner of the Asahi Rising Stars Cocktail Competition. Open to any aspiring young mixologist under the age of 30, four regional finalists have been selected to compete for an all-expenses-paid trip to Japan.

The final promises to be a glitzy affair, located in the hotel’s Thames Room from 7.30pm until midnight. Taking place under the gaze of 400 specially invited guests, there will be complimentary Asahi and cocktails, free canapés courtesy of Yo! Sushi and music from DJ Dan Williams of Jade Jagger’s Jezebel Sound System.

Square Meal has 40 tickets to the event to give away. To try and secure a pair of tickets, email, with ‘Asahi’ in the subject line. Include your name, address and a daytime contact number. Tickets will be handed out on a first-come, first-serve basis and winners will be informed by 8 October.
