Shake things up

The Asian Institute of Hospitality Management is proud to launch its AIHM Mixology Contest 2022.

Open to students, amateur enthusiasts and seasoned pros, contestants are invited to create an original mocktail/cocktail recipe and present it to a panel of judges.

Entries will be judged on their creativity and uniqueness, qualities AIHM looks for in all its students. For those looking to pursue their passions further, our BBA in Global Hospitality Management includes both mixology and entrepreneurship modules.

 

Dare to be different.
