Coral & Coast, a tequila based cocktail by Thomas Begbie
Thomas Begbie works as a bartender at the bar Octans in Luxembourg. The Coral & Coast cocktail was created as part of the Patrón Perfectionists, a cocktail competition held every year, bringing together bar professionals from Luxembourg and Belgium.
The event is organized under the auspices of the Tequila Patrón brand and pursues the objective of awarding the best cocktail prepared with tequila. Six bartenders participated in the competition and Thomas Begbie illustrated with his Coral & Coast cocktail.
With this victory, he won a place of finalist for the contest with the ultimate event scheduled for January 2019 in Jalisco, Mexico. Here is the recipe of the cocktail in question.
