FIRST DRINKS

THE AGWA BOLIVIAN JOB 2 – THE SEQUEL Following the box office success of The Agwa Bolivian Job in 2011 – SouthTrade International once again invited bartenders across the country to audition for the cast of The Agwa Bolivian Job 2 this year. This Agwa signature cocktail competition attracted over 100 entries from bartenders, who could submit any style of cocktail as long as 30ml of Agwa de Bolivia was used ON THE COVER: LIVIN LA VIDA COCA BY GORGE CAMORRA PHOTOGRAPHED BY: ANDREW JARVIE EDITOR: SACHA DELFOSSE ASSISTANT EDITOR: EMILY ATKINSON

as the base ingredient. Entries were judged upon their presentation, balance and overall taste as well as how they used Agwa de Bolivia as a product. Once the casting period came to an end on June 30, the finalist and two runners up for each state were chosen. The public was then invited to vote on the five finalists’ cocktail entries and decide who would be crowned the winner of The Bolivian Job 2 and walk away with the $2,500 cash prize, with victory going to Gorge Camorra from Cloud 9 in Geelong, Victoria. The other four finalists, Mark Pinel (Sake Restaurant and Bar, QLD), Jon Carr (Grain, NSW), Tim Laferla (Mechanics’ Institute, WA) and Erin Shaw (Cushdy, SA) didn’t walk away empty handed though, with each receiving $500 for themselves and their venue. Make sure you contact your SouthTrade representative to find out when casting begins for The Bolivian Job 3. Cheers, AGWA DE BOLIVIA & The SouthTrade Team

Gorge Camorra. Winner of The Agwa Bolivian Job 2

T

he winner of this year’s Agwa de Bolivia signature cocktail competition, The Agwa Bolivian Job 2, is Gorge

Camorra, a Geelong-based bar owner and all-round nice guy with eight years of hospitality experience under his belt. Having previously owned Geelong’s Statik nightclub, Camorra first discovered his passion for the art of cocktail-making after visiting Melbourne’s acclaimed Black Pearl bar almost six years ago. Realising the potential in cocktail bars, he sold Statik nightclub and opened Cloud 9 – the first cocktail bar in Geelong. Camorra certainly made a splash at this year’s contest, experimenting with new fruity, aromatic flavours to create a cocktail that appeals to more than one type of customer – and he had an absolute ball in the process. “I found it a little bit hard. I wanted to make a drink to appeal to a wider consumer, not just one type of drinker. It took a few goes because Agwa has the coca leaf which brings such a different flavour to that of rum, vodka and bourbon, which I am more used to. I really had to get the balance of flavours right but I was very happy,” Camorra explains. “I wanted to try something new with fruits for my drink. I found lemon was too sour but thought mandarin worked really well with the Agwa. Adding scotch created a smoky sweet flavour and the egg white just added to my presentation and gave it a smooth finish. I think my drink appeals to two types of drinkers – females and Scotch drinkers.” And winning The Agwa Bolivian Job 2 competition has also helped expand Camorra’s career and future aspirations. As the results quickly made their way across Facebook, Camorra says many people came into Cloud 9 looking to try his winning cocktail, which helped his profile, as well as that of his bar’s. Camorra is currently involved in teaching unemployed individuals so they can gain their Hospitality – Certificate 3, a program that has proven to be quite successful, achieving a huge 70 per cent employment rate for those that conclude it. “I teach students skills such as coffee-making, RSA, hygiene and even blindfolded tasting. I love it because I get to give back to an industry that has given so much to me,” Camorra says.
