Aloha!

Forbidden Island is pleased to announce its first ever Customer Cocktail Competition! Now is your chance to gain an incredibly small amount of fame and glory and have your cocktail featured on our Fall Cocktail Specials menu! So get to work and craft your masterpiece:

Rules:
-All recipes must be submitted by email to
fidrinkcompetition@gmail.com no later than 12:00PM PDT September 12th for consideration.
-All recipes should be expressed in ounces, (or fractions of ounces), dashes, or drops. No hot drinks.
-Include detailed instructions including preparation (e.g. shaken/stirred/blended), name, garnish, and glassware.
-Any spirit category is eligible- you don’t have to mix with rum, and no preference will be given to any particular base spirit.
-Spirits selected should be of appropriate quality, but not over the top. In other words, recipes calling for $200-a-bottle cognac will have other ingredients substituted.
-Seasonal & local products are always preferred. We can supply just about anything, however things like “pickled turkey gizzards” will be disqualified.
-JUDGING: The top ten finalists will be selected by Martin, and then prepared and tasted blindly by our panel of judges- the Forbidden Island Staff. They will know what the name of the drink is and the ingredients but not whose recipe it is.
-Grand Prize will be a Forbidden Island Gift Card, and of course your name on the specials menu. Plus the satisfaction that comes with “a job well done.”
-Contest is open to members of our exclusive email list and readers of Tiki Central. It will help if we’ve seen your face in the bar at least once.

There’s no time to lose! Get crackin’!


Mahalo!

I don;t know if they have a rule about what booze is allowed or not allowed,
but being that its a tiki bar, I'm assuming that rum based would be better suited drink sir.

Yeah but have you ever had a rum and tonic? Nasty!

But seriously, this is awesome, I just wish I was creative enough to come up with a decent drink that hasn't been made before. I'll just have to live vicariously through you creative folks. So get to mixing!

Any spirit will be allowed...

RULE #4:
Any spirit category is eligible- you don't have to mix with rum, and no preference will be given to any particular base spirit.



As for JW, use your "recipe" as a base to start; be inspired to add other flavors. You might end up surprising yourself.

The aloha spirit... it's kind of like love. The secret ingredient. You know, the one that blows up robots.

(In all seriousness, though, this contest is awesome! Can't wait to see the results!)

Okay, I'm In. Before I started working on the drink for the Oasis I was working on a drink called "The Serpent's Kiss".

One question, is there a particular number of ounces you'd like the drink submissions?
If we could get an idea of a minimum or maximum that would be great.
