Spring has arrived and we’re ready for a toast to the season.  This month’s challenge is to create the ultimate springtime drink. Give us your best recipe for kicking the last of this cold weather to the curb and we’ll pay for your next $200 tab at the bar of your choice.  Here are the details:


  • Send your original cocktail to drinkinginamerica@gmail.com
  • Include your name, D.O.B, hometown, & of course recipe
  • Take a picture of your concoction (we’ll keep this task optional)


All entries must be submitted by March 28th before 5:00 pm EST. From there, Mike Cerretani, bartender at Bitter Bar, will judge the recipes. He’ll be looking for overall creativity based on the following:


  • Best use of flavor/combination of spirits (taste)
  • Best representation of springtime theme


We’ll announce the winner on Monday, April 2nd.  The winning recipe will be posted on Drinkinginamerica.com and the winning mixologist will be awarded the $200 gift card prize.


As always we like to share the love so even if you don’t win the $200, don’t worry the first 25 entries will receive a DIA T-Shirt.
