2012 Tales of the Cocktail Vancouver Cocktail Competition Entry Form

Create Our Signature Vanouver Punch Tales of the Cocktail invites you to submit a winning recipe for the Official Cocktail Competition of Tales of the Cocktail on Tour to be held in Vancouver. Tales of the Cocktail® is taking its show on the road once again for Tales of the Cocktail® on Tour – Vancouver. This February we’ll return to our home away from home for three days of seminars, tastings, special events and more, each featuring some of the biggest names in mixology from around the world. Join us February 12-15 as we dive deep into the cocktail culture of Vancouver and sample a taste of what’s in store at the 10th Anniversary Tales of the Cocktail this summer in New Orleans. For our 2nd Tales of the Cocktail on Tour Vancouver we are punching things up with our cocktail competition. If you think your skills are up to the challenge, we would like you to create a punch cocktail that we can use as our official cocktail at this year’s event. Punch was derived from the Hindu word for five and is traditionally made with five ingredients: liquor, sugar or sweetening agent, citrus juice, tea (or other spice) and water. By the end of the 17th century it was most of the popular drinks in England and its colonies. Bartenders all over the world have been turning back the clock to rediscover forgotten drinks and recipes, drinks such as flips, bucks, and cups are appearing on menus. We ask you to look back and create a punch for the year 2012 at Tales of the Cocktail on Tour Vancouver. • A minimum of 1.5 ounces of base spirit whisk(e)y, rum, cognac, tequila or gin selected from the list below. • Use of multiple spirits from list below is permitted. • You are encouraged to use infusions, but each infusion may only be created with a singular ingredient. • All ingredients must be reasonably easy to find, or prepare. • You are encouraged to use ingredients that are indigenous or native to, and represent Canada.
