Fan appreciation? Giveaways? Who knows?
I like my contests interactive and my themes a bit kooky (go figure).
And, I need your help.
Cocktail? Yes, please!
This is my special "I've made it through another day" treatail, usually occurring on a nightly basis.
-about 1/2 oz. lemon juice
-a few drops of Campari
-2 oz. - 4 oz. of Plymouth gin (one of the only brands worth drinking, in my humble opinion)
-a splash of (diet for me, please) tonic
Mix (or shake, if you are feeling frisky!) the lemon juice, Campari and gin over some ice cubes. Add tonic to taste.
-a few loose berries shaken with the alcohol and lemon juice
-a toothpick full of Haribo Gummi Bears balanced on the rim, arranged in some sort of visually pleasing colorway
-stellar MCM Roly- Poly glasses with gold doohickey designs or any (preferably) old (and shiny) low ball glass. I am a fan of these examples.
Why should you care?
RetroTrend enjoys cocktails, this is nothing new. This doe's favorite cocktail does not have a name.
That's where you come in.
This is a blog only contest.
Comment with your chosen name for my chosen cocktail.
It is a bit bitter, girlie, and likes to kick it old school, just like me. Bonus points for anatomy, indie music, Mad Men or fashion references, of course!
Start shopping! You'll need to include which item/s you'd chose from one of my shops if you had $50.00 to spend.
If your drink name is chosen, you'll win a one time use, $50.00 credit to one of my three Etsy shops.
This contest ends Friday, November 5th, at 12 noon EST. The winner will be announced here.
