It's March 1st, and do you know what that means? I'm hosting my first blogging event! I've been planning this event for some time. Remember how I kept hinting and hinting about it?
I wanted it to be a food blogging event, revolving around St. Patrick's Day, and alcohol, since I have Irish blood.
So I introduce to you, my....
St. Paddy's Day Pub Crawl Blogging Event!
To participate, cook and post a savory or sweet dish, using beer, wine, or hard liquor/liqueur, (Or all of the above!) between March 1st and Monday, March 17th.
Send me your entry at sugarplumblog(at)yahoo(dot)com with the following information:
2. Blog name
3. Blog URL
4. Post title or Name of dish
5. Post URL
I will post all of the entries on Thursday, March 20th, and we'll have a little pub crawl with all of the boozy food.
This isn't just a blogging event, it's a blogging contest!
Myself and a panel of judges will pick a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. I'll make a big fuss over you entry, and give you lots of attention.
The 1st place winner also receives a prize:
A copy of Entertaining with the Sopranos
The Ultimate Book of Cocktails.
(I just bought them from Borders, tonight!)
I will be judging on the following criteria:
Use of & type of alcohol-35%
This is a cooking & baking contest, not a drink-making contest. I can't wait to see your entries! There are some really talented bloggers out there.
Now get ready....set....go!
SHOW ME YOUR BOOZE!
This is a cocktail that I made, to celebrate my new contest.
1 ounce rum
1 ounce Malibu Banana liqueur
2 ounces pineapple juice
2 teaspoons Meyer lemon juice
2 kumquats, thinly sliced
Combine rum, Malibu, pineapple juice, lemon juice, and ice, in a cocktail shaker, and shake to combine. Strain liquid into a glass, place a few slices of kumquat into the drink, and garnish the sides as well.
