Would you jump off a bridge for a good cocktail?

Would you jump off a bridge for a good cocktail?

42 BELOW would. We’d even hurl the world’s best bartenders from a great height in the quest for the ultimate cocktail - and that’s exactly what we will be doing in September, as the 42 BELOW Cocktail World Cup returns.

42 BELOW is stupidly passionate about cocktails so we are bringing the 42 best bartenders on the planet to Queenstown for the world’s most extreme cocktail competition, the third 42 BELOW Cocktail World Cup. We dangle bartenders out of a helicopter and challenge them to make a martini, make them bungy-jump off Kawarau Bridge while mixing a Cosmopolitan and top it off with a cocktail mix-off on an ice bar on the side of a mountain.

And with some of the world’s finest cocktail connoisseurs as judges and mixology workshops to share cocktails secrets from all corners of the globe, the 42 BELOW Cocktail World Cup also promises to invigorate the brain cells as well as the taste buds.
