Cocktails will be judged on a scale of 1-10 in the areas of Appearance, Aroma, Taste, Creativity and Production Value. The scale for the first 4 looks a little like this:
3- I would not reorder, but might finish it.
5- Industry average, I would have another
7- Wow, I’ll drink these all night
10- Unbelievable I would Instagram a pic of this to tell all my friends
Production Value: If you are working a busy night in the well, are you going to murder a cocktailer when 8 of these come up on a ticket or can you bust these out fairly quickly? You won't get dinged for having exotic ingredients, as long they can be prepped ahead or pre-batched.
Mojitos = 1, Shot of Tequila = 10
(Industry Standard for most = 5)
