SSC-SHLRM and Bacardi University Year 2
Bacardi University is a program that does not only focus on its brand, but has been a program that teaches students from different universities about what it takes to be a great bartender.
Mr. Nino Cruz, the brand ambassador of Bacardi together with his team has once again visited St. Scholastica’s College Manila last October 2, 2018. Mr. Cruz demonstrated his superb skills to the School of Hotel, Leisure and Restaurant Management (SHLRM) students, which was held at the Food and Beverage Simulation room.
Different cocktails were presented by Mr. Cruz and the (SHLRM) students were given the chance to create those cocktails themselves. Techniques were demonstrated as well and it was a great way of appreciating the art of bartending for sure.
He also discussed tips on how to win a Bacardi u mix competition, a culminating activity of Bacardi University, wherein students from different universities and colleges across the Philippines are challenged to showcase their skills and mastery in bartending. This competition is on its 6th year next 2019, and St. Scholastica’s College Manila will hopefully be joining the Bacardi U-Mix competition for the second time around.
