Cocktail Promenade - Bartender Level

'There is a true revolution going on in the cocktail market: the general public is ordering more cocktails than ever, and almost every catering establishment serves them. Experts speak of a 'cocktail revolution', but also see a major lack of cocktail knowledge in the catering industry. Ready-made cocktails are certainly a good solution, but don't let the 'ready-made convenience' stop you. There is much more going on in the world of cocktails, such as: special flavors, new bartender infrastructure, mixology and more! Experience them in the Cocktail Promenade during Gastvrij Rotterdam.
