Calling all bartenders, professional and cocktail enthusiasts alike: it’s time to put your mixology skills to the test and submit your cocktail recipe to Pendleton Whisky’s Midnight Cocktail Challenge!
The challenge: create America’s new favorite whisky cocktail using Pendleton Midnight. Submit a video of you creating your drink step-by-step or a photo of the finished product, along with the recipe, to www.midnightcocktailchallenge.com and you could be a winner!
The reward: from February to June, one recipe will be chosen each month as a monthly winner and will win $100 and a Pendleton branded item of the month! The five winners will move on to the finale, where mixologist Jonathan Pogash will build and taste each of the five cocktails and ultimately name one grand prize winner. The grand prize winner will win a professional bartending kit, $750 and will have their recipe published in a newspaper or magazine local to their hometown. Ah, cocktail fame and fortune!
A few things to help you on your cocktail quest: you can submit as many recipes as you like, but they must be original and not published anywhere. Your recipes will be eligible to win a monthly prize for the entirety of the contest, but the more recipes you submit, the higher your chances of becoming the Cocktail Champion!
So grab your shakers, strainers, and a bottle of Pendleton Midnight to do some…”research” and enter your recipe today!
