This competition is organized by the Barmen Association of the Algarve, the Municipality of Silves and IBA and will bring together professionals from the Algarve, who will present their tests in two modalities: Classical and Flair, «seeking to evaluate those who will present the best technique, best decoration and best cocktail», explains the Chamber of Silves.

In all modalities it will be mandatory to use natural orange juice, made with Silves oranges. The public present at the exhibition will be able to watch the creation of the most varied cocktails on the event's secondary stage.
