A Canadian has won a competition for the world's best bartender.

Kaitlyn Stewart took top honours at the World Class Bartender of the Year competition in Mexico City this week.

Organizers say the event involved 55 competitors who were finalists from regional events in 57 countries.

The Vancouver woman had to demonstrate her cocktail-making skills against other bartenders.

As the winner, she becomes an ambassador for the competition's organizers and will travel the world to judge competitions.

"I'm so incredibly amazed and shocked to have been named the world's best bartender," Stewart said in the release. "I've loved every moment of this experience."
