St-Germain is excited to announce a new format for the 4th Annual Can-Can Classic Cocktail Competition. This year, we have partnered with Edible Communities — the award-winning magazines that celebrate quality, artisanal products, local foods, and seasonality—to provide a new twist on the competition.
St-Germain is an all-natural, artisanally crafted product, and this year we want our cocktail competition to reflect the importance of working with fresh ingredients. We are challenging you, our bartender friends, to develop an original cocktail recipe with St-Germain utilizing seasonal ingredients from your local region.
The editorial staff at Edible, along with L’Equipe St-Germain leader Robert Cooper, will select one winner in each market where Edible publishes a magazine.
Winners will be selected based on the following criteria:
* Flavor profile / balance of the cocktail
* Resourcefulness and creativity incorporating seasonal local ingredients (special consideration will be given to entrants who focus on local fruits, vegetables, spices, herbs or other products indigenous to your region)
* Note: It is not required that all other spirits be locally produced.
Each winner will receive an Edible Communities editorial profile as well as a Yarai (Japanese) Cocktail Mixing Glass from Cocktail Kingdom. Each regional winner will then be eligible to win a $10,000 cash prize and be heralded as the national winner of the 4th Annual Can-Can Classic Cocktail Competition.
Submissions will be accepted until 8/31/2011.
