The 2009 Sherry Cocktail Competition starts now!

The Vinos de Jerez Cocktail Cocktail Competition is back for 2009!
We are now accepting entries to find America’s best Sherry Cocktail and we’d love to have yours.
The official rules are below so please read on.

You may use any style of Sherry, from any bodega in Jerez.

Please tell us:
the precise recipe
the proper garnish
the ideal glass

You must explain in writing:
why your cocktail is great
when to serve, and how
the exact preparation method and steps of assembly
the perfect [bar] food match (and why?)

You must provide:
a copy of the cocktail menu of the bar/restaurant where the cocktail is placed and being served
a photo of the drink, (digital jpeg is best)

You can submit your recipes at any time, but the deadline for entry is Friday, October 16th, 2009 submissions should be sent via email to

The winner will receive a cash prize and an all expense paid trip to Jerez, Spain well as loads of press announcing the winner and the recipe on our website and in our blogs.

As always, the early and well prepared barman/woman always gets the best shifts, if you know what I mean!

Good luck!
