Mario Hofferer prevailed against selected national champions from 61 nations and secured the sought after gold for Austria. During the finals, Mario Hofferer became stronger and more secure each day, which surely helped him in the Super Final against the last remaining 6 nations. In addition to the cocktail itself, the expert knowledge, the handling of the guest, the technique and the bartending style was evaluated, said Hofferer, who won the overall title in all categories and in addition to the world championship title was also named "Bartender of the Year". He convinced the jury with his drink "Rosé Sissy", consisting of soft vodka, Austrian sparkling wine, Spanish sangria, herbs, bitter extract from Trinidad and a pinch of gold. The theme of the performance was the history of the K.u.K. monarchy.
The strong performance was mainly due to the intensive preparation with the Austrian Association, in particular with his trainer Peter Weissnegger, with whom he has worked for months on his technique and preparation skills. “I have celebrated the greatest successes of my career with Peter Weissnegger, because our venerable and modern understanding of the bar culture complements each other wonderfully”.
