42 Below vodka has put the call out for final entries to the 2010 42 Below Cocktail World Cup, as they seek 72 bartenders for three state finals to be held next month (November).

Entries for the Cup, in its sixth year of competition, close on Tuesday November 3.

Twenty-four bartenders will be selected to attend each heat, taking place in Brisbane (16 November), Sydney (30 November) and Melbourne (14 December), where they will compete for the chance to represent Australia in the world final in March, 2010.

Held in Queenstown, New Zealand each year, the 42 Below Cocktail World Cup has earned a reputation as one of the zaniest and most fun cocktail competitions around.

The five-day final see teams from around the world competing over five days in a series of extreme challenges, which in the past have included hanging from helicopters and bungee jumping, while creating clever and original cocktails using 42 Below vodka.

This year, the Australian heats will follow the format of the 42 Below ‘Ready Steady Shake’, whereby contestants are presented with a mystery box and challenged to create a unique cocktail using only its contents.

To enter, participants are required to register their details, along with an original 42 Below cocktail recipe at the cocktail world cup website.
