Take a look at the 13 winning cocktails from the Absolut Invite finale. 

The Absolut Invite finale did not disappoint. There was smoke, there was fire, there was music, there was specially crafted grapefruit and lemongrass perfume. And (of course) there were some really, really delicious cocktails. 

The best bartending teams from 13 different countries valiantly competed over 4 days before being whittled down. Teams from Estonia, Germany, Poland and Sweden made it through to the final 4 and were faced with the last and toughest stage, Absolut Invite After Dark. 

Their mission was to prove their team’s creative mixing skills and their ability to create the most unique, exciting experience for the assembled guests and deciding jury. 

After a worthy, awe-inspiring battle, the clock struck midnight and the ridiculously talented Swedish team from Stockholm bar Ling Long were crowned champions.
