June 2013: Strawberry Cocktails
Deadline: Sunday, June 23, 2013
The theme for the June 2013 cocktail contest is strawberry cocktails. Your recipe must include strawberries or a strawberry-flavored ingredient (e.g. strawberry syrup, liqueur, infusion, etc.). If a particular brand significantly affects the cocktail's flavor, please specify. Keep in mind that the drink does have to be original, though it does not necessarily have to include alcohol.
If you have created a strawberry cocktail that you think could grab our panel's attention, submit it. The winning drink will be featured in a spotlight on About.com Cocktails and placed permanently in the cocktail collection.
The winning cocktail is Fresa Caliente. Visit the recipe page in the permanent collection here.
Other finalists include Strawberry Basil Martini and Lovely 'Rita. Both recipes are available below. Read commentary on the results of this contest here.
