You’ve never seen gins like this before. Whether they’re piled high with cotton candy or filled to the brim with maze-like garnishes, these are the gin cocktails giving freakshakes a run for their money.

1. Not enough kale in the diet that’s making you hate your life? This cocktail has your back.

2. Is a cocktail even a cocktail if it’s not served with dry ice and an ominous rock?

3. Every drink should guarantee Jumanji nightmares.

3. When grenadine isn’t cool enough, just stick the whole pomegranate on there.

4. You get ten points if you can figure out where your mouth is supposed to go.

5. It may just be us, but maybe glassware shouldn’t wear accessories?

6. For when the bar is a little too urban and you want to feel closer to nature.

Submit a bold and unique cocktail recipe that transcends borders, cities and cultures using a local ingredient that compliments Opihr. The bartenders behind the most inspiring recipes will be invited to a live South African final to share their creations and stories with judges, including mixologist and bar owner Mmiso Luphondo, photographer and film director Justice Mukheli, and last year’s global winner. The winner of the regional round will then be sent to vibrant Istanbul, all expenses paid, to compete in the global final alongside 10 competitors for the title of The Spirit of Opihr. Simply upload a picture of your cocktail to Instagram, accompanied by the story behind it, tag @Opihrgin, use the hashtag #OpihrWorld and geotag the city you’re in.
