Sip, Savor, And Celebrate: The Highlights From Lagos Cocktail Week 2023
The Lagos Cocktail Week, dedicated to celebrating the art of mixology and cocktail’s dynamic culture, has now grown into one of West Africa’s finest gatherings.
The event witnessed attention-grabbing workshops followed by a 2-day spectacular affair on the 19th and 20th of October, tagged Lagos Cocktail Village, which commenced with an inaugural toast featuring Laurent Perrier and the Cocktail Week founder, Lara Rawa. This was succeeded by compelling presentations by the workshop guest speakers, Uchedu Egbuna, Bolanle Tyson, and Rhys Wilson.
The second day saw a heart-pounding bar battle for the title of Lagos Cocktail Week Champion between talented mixologists Victor Ugo for the Chivas Challenge, Terna Benjamin for the Bombay Challenge, Uyounwu Innocent Jaja for the Gordon’s Challenge, and Victor Archibong for the Fayrouz Challenge emerged as winners.
The event ended with an after-party with amazing sounds from Wanni and Handi.
