Restaurant Hospitality's Best Cocktails in America contest

Restaurant Hospitality's Best Cocktails in America contest

• See more Drink Trends

It’s been more than 10 years since the ladies of Sex and the City made drinking Cosmopolitans chic. The world of mixology has come a long way since then, and the level of creativity that goes into making cocktails is off the charts. That’s why we want to see what you’ve got.

Here’s how the contest will work:

RH editors will select the Top 12 Best Cocktails in America. It doesn’t matter what type of cocktail you enter. What does matter is creativity.

A traditional, straightforward cocktail—as good as it is—will not make the cut. We want to see something different, something interesting, something delicious.

We can’t travel all over the country and taste every cocktail entered (as much as we’d like to try). We’ll narrow down entries to a manageable list of contenders and then we’ll hit the road to see if your cocktail is the real deal.

Here’s what we need from you:

• A photo of the cocktail
• The name of the cocktail
• The creator’s name
• Inspiration for the cocktail
• Price
• Key ingredients
• What makes the cocktail special
• Awards the cocktail may have won
• What others (journalists) are saying about the drink

Email the photo and the cocktail details to editor-in-chief Michael Sanson at [email protected]. In the subject line of the email write Cocktail Contest.

The winners of the cocktail contest will be showcased in the November issue. Fame, if not fortune, awaits. Salud!
