We congratulate Stanislav Nishanov @holy_mint_bar from Volgodonsk, Russia for his victory in the Category #2 “Best Coctail Tuto” week 1 of the Spirits Hunters Insta Bartender Contest.

In his Instagram profile Stanislav shares various instructional cocktail tutorials, organizes beautiful cocktail shows for parties in his city and promotes the bartender profession for the local population. His smile greets everyone in each photo or video that he is posting.

For the contest, Stanislav sent us an original video, professionally filmed and edited, to the sound of a matching music which provokes… fear! The name of the cocktail is definitely living up to the video.

FEAR Cocktail recipe

Tanqueray Dry Gin 45ml

The purple plum based beauty Stanislav created, gets even more into the upcoming Halloween spirit.
