Drink Masters on Netflix is bound to pique your interest. Viewers have seen a number of food series that have piqued their interest, but this new reality TV show offers a unique approach. The new program involves 12 mixologists who demonstrate their ingenuity by presenting innovative drinks in the hopes of winning the ultimate prize of $100,000 and the title of The Ultimate Drink Master.
The reality TV program has 12 bartenders competing in different tasks to get to the finals. Only three of the 12 made it to the grand finale, where they competed by presenting the judges with a three-course feast. Lauren Paylor, nicknamed LP, was crowned the champion after impressing the judges with her trademark drinks.
According to the official summary of Drink Masters,
“Twelve of the world’s most creative mixologists infuse, swirl, and blend their way through a series of high-stakes cocktail challenges for the chance to win a life-changing reward and the title of The Ultimate Drink Master.”
29-year-old Lauren is originally from New York City. LP’s enthusiasm for cooking stems from a childhood interest in math and science. In her employment, she is also quite technical and calculative. Before crafting any drink, she puts it down on paper and quantifies each component before combining them together.
