Who Won Last Week’s DJ Challenge? Find Out Who Made the Best Drink!

The rules were simple: Make a drink behind the bar. The best tasting drink wins.

The act of going behind a bar with zero knowledge of how to make a great drink: therein lies the challenge.

Last Thursday at the Dark Horse Bar, 107.5  Zoo FM was represented by Aaron “Tallest DJ in America” Traylor, while 96.3 The Blaze mid-day host J.C. held it down for her team, as they both whipped up their best drinks to score points with the brave tasting panel consisting of five men, and three women.

Both contestants were given the chance to make two drinks of their own, the overall score of both drinks combined determined the winner, and loser.

Here are the ingredients of the drinks created in this week’s DJ Challenge:

J.C.’s “Rocker Shocker”

  • 2 oz. Bacardi
  • 3/4 glass of Rockstar
  • Topped off with Pabst Blue Ribbon

Judges’ reactions:

“Hmm. Interesting”

“Ug. Not a PBR fan, at all”

J.C.’s “Pop a Cherry in the Vodka Soda”

  • 2 oz. vodka
  • 1 oz. lime
  • 1 oz. grenadine
  • Topped off with soda water

Judges’ reactions:

“Not bad! Much better than the first.”

“Needs a bit more lime.”

Aaron’s “Whipped Cream Vodka Red Bull”

  • 1.5 oz Whipped Cream Vodka
  • Topped off the Red Bull

Judges’ reactions:

“Very smooth. A nice twist on a traditional vodka Red Bull”

“Ooh, I like this!”

Aaron’s “Creamsicle”

  • 1/2 orange juice
  • 1/2 vodka
  • 1 pint vanilla bean ice cream
  • Whip up in a blender

Judges’ reactions:

“Oh yeah, this is a good one. You can’t even taste the alcohol.”

“Not much into sweet stuff. This one is all right.”


The Winner of this week’s DJ Challenge

Aaron Traylor – According to the judges, were it solely based on just one drink, the challenge would have almost been too close to call. However, since J.C.’s “Rocker Shocker” failed to impress and Aaron leaned toward sweeter, smoother drinks, The Tallest DJ’s concoctions scored more points combined than J.C’s pair of harder, more intense, ingredients.
