Ocean Vodka seeks 'World's Best Cocktail' in third annual contest
Just a few days remain to come up with your version of “The World’s Best Cocktail” using Ocean Organic Vodka.
Now in its third year, the competition kicks off online with submissions accepted through midnight Saturday via the company’s website and email (email@example.com). Six contestants will be selected to take part in the finals, which are set for Sept. 24 at the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa — and yes, airfare and accommodations will be provided for all finalists.
The theme for this year’s contest is “Farm to Table,” and all submissions will be judged on the following:
» Completed application
» High-resolution photo of cocktail
» Presentation/interpretation of theme
» Use of fresh ingredients
» Representation of Ocean Organic Vodka
According to the contest rules, submitted applications must include a full recipe and preparation method for a single serving of the drink. No more than 2 ounces of alcohol in total can be used in the recipe; no more than five total ingredients, including alcohol, and Ocean Organic Vodka should be the main ingredient. No pre-infused alcohol allowed.
Along with the trip to Maui, the winning recipe’s creator will also receive a $500 first place prize and the drink will be featured on all Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa cocktail menus for one year.
Unlimited entries are allowed; must be 21+ to participate. See complete contest rules at www.oceanvodka.com.
