Canada’s top female bartenders are going to battle it out this February.

Now in its third year, cocktail competition Speed Rack–created for and by female bartenders to promote female bartenders– will see competitors go head to head in round-robin, timed, and judged challenges.

Conceived by New York Bartenders Ivy Mix and Lynnette Marrero, the annual event aims to spotlight “strong women in the spirits industry,” while also raising funds towards breast cancer education, prevention, and research.
