Sprudge Classics - Carguilo Called Champ! Interview & History

Katie first competed in 2005, in the Southeast Region – she competed using an Indian Monsoon Malabar espresso, and her first signature drink was entitled “The Fighting Vicky”, named after her guinea pig (Ms. Carguilo has owned a series of GPs over the years; they are her spirit animal). She placed second in that year’s SERBC. The next year, in 2006, she competed in the Mid-Atlantic region, and went on to compete in the 2006 USBC using a signature drink called the “Ring of Fire”, which was supposed to capped off by lighting a ring of fire around the signature drink vessel. Unfortunately, Ms. Carguilo left the lighter on a cart that was wheeled off stage prior to her performance. Hearts sank in the audience as Katie conceded, “It appears that I’ve forgotten the lighter.”
