The Darwin Mango Cup is now open

The smell of ripe-mangoes is in the air, and that means only one thing: The Mango Cup has returned for 2022 and soon our hospitality venues will be offering their delectable mango-creations.

Venues are invited to take part in this iconic Territory competition which celebrates our vibrant hospitality and shines a spotlight on the creative flair and talent within the Territory’s thriving food and drink scene.

To be crowned the Mango Cup champion, mixologists from across the Territory are invited to create an innovative drink with the Territory’s favourite fruit: Mango. Last year’s winner, the ‘Mang-Laksa’ crafted by Jun from the Loading Bay shattered boundaries for a mango-cocktail, and so competing venues in 2022 will need to tap into the Darwin experience and discover a new twist on this beloved Territory staple.

Hospitality workers are invited to represent their bar, restaurant, cafĂ©, or hotel, and are encouraged to enter more than one creation – there is no limit on mango madness! Creations do not need to be alcoholic either, with venues able to secure votes from Sober Bobs across the Territory.

If a venue, or hospo worker, thinks their tipple has what it takes, they need to enter.
