Enter the Ultimate Bar Chef Competition!

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!

    I knew we could count on you, Sean!

    You heard it straight from the founder’s mouth, kids, so get cracking on those recipes! I know I’ve been playing around with my Hendricks and Pama already…

  • Sean Bigley says:

    Hi All!

    You all have my personal guarantee that any submitted cocktail will follow the rules set forth in the Cocktail for a Cure entry form or be disqualified.

    At Ultimate Bar Chef, we are stickler’s for rules and integrity.

    Don’t forget to send in your request for a sample of Argento Fino. You’ll need it before you send in your recipe.

    Good Luck All!

    Ooooh, snap!

    I think Jimmy is referring to the last contest we all entered, where the winning cocktail took some liberties with the rules.

    My pal Jim is just bitter that I personally didn’t win

    Hopefully the rules will be strictly observed this time? Sean?

  • Jimmy says:

    Do we have to use all the ingredients? I’ve heard that in some of these things, the ingredients lists are just “guidelines.”

  • 1. Hendricks is my favorite GIN!
    2. I just picked up PAMA after going to a bar and experimenting with some drinks…
    3. I have no idea how to combine the rosey/cucumber taste of Hendricks with the sweet very sugary taste of pama…

    good luck..

  • Jeffrey says:

    Thanks, Sean! I’m going to pick up a bottle of Pama this week and start experimenting.

    I’m excited!

  • Sean Bigley says:

    Hey Jeff.

    Thanks for the plug! And a big congratulations on being our Aspiring Bar Chef for June. If you have trouble coming up with only one drink, don’t worry too much, you can enter two drinks. I really look forward to seeing your recipes.(Although, I won’t know which recipes are yours until you make the finals)

    I hope all your readers take part in this fun event and help with this great cause.
