I'm hosting a blogging event!


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:
1. Name
2. Blog name
3. Blog URL
4. Post title or Name of dish
5. Post URL
6. Picture


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

and...

The Ultimate Book of Cocktails.
(I just bought them from Borders, tonight!)

I will be judging on the following criteria:
Creativity-50%
Use of & type of alcohol-35%
Presentation
-15%

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.

Kumquatini (Recipe By Me)


1 ounce rum
1 ounce Malibu Banana liqueur
2 ounces pineapple juice
2 teaspoons Meyer lemon juice
Ice
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.
Serves 1

  22. To do:

    1. Come up with good recipes

    2. Get that damned digital camera already!

    (When I had FIOS installed in my apartment, Verizon said we'd be getting a $200 dollar Best Buy gift certificate. When it arrives, I know where I'm taking it.)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  25. Jaime- You can enter as much as you want. Just don't go too crazy.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  34. It's as if you created a blogging event just for me! ;-)
    Now to narrow down the bazillion choices rattling around in my head.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Great idea! Now the pressure is on to come up with something worth entering.

    Thanks, that's all I need is more pressure. (Just kid'n - this kind of pressure is fun!!)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Sounds like a great event for St. Patrick's Day! I'll have to plan something for next week. :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Sounds like a lot of fun! I will have to think on that one but with an Irish husbad I can't pass!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ok!! I CAN'T let that pass!! I'm totally in!:)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hahaha FUN! Ahh, I'm always up for something involving liquor.

    I do want to ask, though,because I'm curious: not that I'm complaining, but why is it an ITALIAN book for an IRISH event? The foodie in me rejoices and hugs you, but the Irish in me might sucker punch you without spilling my beer. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  40. So excited! Now to decide what to make...

    ReplyDelete
  41. Crafty Mom- Of course!

    Ley- Um, I guess because the Sopranos like to drink?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Alright, alright. Nice save. lol ;)

    ReplyDelete
