Mex-ology 101: a Perth tequila cocktail competition

Perth bartenders mixing tequila cocktails with points for "Mexicanness" and "getting 'bravos' from the crowd"? The world's most serious shaker throwdown this ain't, but the ingredients are all there for a fun night out. At the very least, it should be pretty high energy. The last cocktail comp held at Universal Bar - Parlez vous Chartreuse? - attracted more than 200 guests. Not too shabby for a Monday night and proof positive that the city's cocktail scene continues to develop apace.
