Interested in the possibility of a free four night stay at a fun little cocktail convention in New Orleans this July? We were too. Well all that stands between you and four free nights at Tales of the Cocktail is a simple drink recipe. The Hotel Monteleone is celebrating the 60th anniversary of its famous Carousel Bar on May 21, 2009. From 1949 until about the late 60’s or 70’s the specialty drink menu boasted a “Monteleone Cocktail”. Unfortunately, neither the exact exact recipes nor specifics on the ingredients survived.
This May, the Hotel Monteleone is hosting an online contest to accept drink recipe nominations for a new official Monteleone Cocktail. Recipes will be judged by VIPs who will be at the Carousel anniversary celebration on May 21. There are no requirements on types of liquor or style of drink, but all drink entries must be received by May 18, so that the ingredients may be
acquired and drinks prepared at the May 21 event. The winning entry will become the new official Monteleone Cocktail, and the winner will receive four free nights at the Hotel Monteleone during Tales of the
Participating bloggers should post entries online, and all participants should e-mail their drink recipes, along with their name, address and phone number, to email@example.com. The deadline is coming up, so get your jiggers ready. May the best drink win!
