For the 15th year, as part of the ToyCity initiative, Spielwarenmesse invited Nuremberg’s bars to compete in a ToyCocktail Competition to create a special cocktail for the trade fair.

The competition took place on December 4 at Bar Europa, which won last year’s competition. This year’s winner was the “Pill-toy-rika” by Shirley Bleisteiner from Gasthaus Pillhofer. The cocktail is bright red, inspired by the Spielwarenmesse logo.

Four judges, Bernd Schäfer from Nuremberg, Adriano Paulus from Munich, Sven Goller from Bamberg, and Berlind Bernemann of Spielwarenmesse eG, judged the creative concoctions in accordance with official competition rules of the Deutsche Barkeeper-Union.

The winning cocktail will be available at nine participating bars around the city during the Spielwarenmesse, from January 30 to February 3, and will be served at various evening events at the fair.
