Competing bars across the globe are challenged to create a Naked Sour inspired by the bartenders passions outside of work before attending a truly unforgettable finale event somewhere in their home country.

To challenge bartenders’ creativity, they’ll be asked to create a cocktail from the ingredients provided in a Mystery Box at the competition finale.

Bartending teams present their Naked Sour and take part in further challenges and activities designed to test creativity and originality.

This liberating out-of-bar experience helps participants leave the pressures of everyday life behind, inspiring them to enjoy the spirit of freedom and ultimately Live Naked.
