Sula Selections launched Beluga Cocktail Masters India 2018 in association with Beluga Noble Russian vodka this August.
After an intense selection of ten finalists across India and a grand final competition, Adamo Balsamo of CinCin became the overall winner.
The finalists were expected to prepare a unique beluga cocktail during the final and five of the best were selected. These mixologists then challenged them with a black box containing ingredients such as dry vermouth, balsamic vinegar, Rosso vermouth, star anise, rosemary, apricot marmalade to make the winning cocktail.
Adamo Balsamo had to make a cocktail based on coconut milk, the main ingredient of his black box – he said: “Coconut milk was an ingredient that changed the game for me, I always wanted to make a coconut milk drink. For my bar and my team at CinCin, I am very happy ! May God bless all those who wished me good luck. I never thought I would win this prestigious competition, because participating was very important. »
