I’ve got some good news and some bad news.
The good news is that my dear friend (and one hell of a bartender) Sean Bigley over at Ultimate Bar Chef is hosting a cocktail competition this summer and he wants you to participate. And, if you win, you can take home a cool $1,750.
Here’s the bad news: you have to create a cocktail that uses Hendricks gin, Pama pomegranate liqueur and Easy Leaf Products Argento Fino (food-grade silver powder), which is going to make for a very challenging (but exciting) time of it. This should be no easy task for me personally, as Hendricks is one of my favorite gins and I know I’m going to have a hard time settling on just one recipe.
However, there’s more good news: by participating you will be helping raise awareness for the Y-ME Breast Cancer Organization:
Welcome to the competition! This competition will bring the talents and resources of the spririt industry together to raise money for breast cancer. The charity that we have selected is Y-ME Breast Cancer Organization, which is based out of Chicago that helps women and their families help cope with the day to day life of breast cancer. This dedicated group of individuals has a 24 hour hotline manned by breast cancer survivors, has a website that is available in multiple different languages, provides information for anyone touched by this disease, and much, much more. We invite you to visit their site at www.y-me.org to learn more about them and see why we chose this worthy organization.
And, while you’re there entering the contest, take a look at the featured Aspiring Bar Chef of the month!
