An IBA Official Cocktail is one of many cocktails selected by the International Bartenders Association (IBA) for use in the annual World Cocktail Competition (WCC)[1] in bartending. As such, these mixed drinks are some of the most notable and frequently-made cocktails by professional bartenders around the world.

IBA Cocktails are specified in centilitres (cL) rather than the more commonly used millilitres (mL). 3 cL are approximately equivalent to 1 U.S. fluid ounce (1.4% more).

List of cocktails[edit]

IBA Official Cocktails are divided into three categories:

The Unforgettables[edit]

Contemporary Classics[edit]

New Era Drinks[edit]
