St. Germain is an all-natural, artisanally crafted product, and this year the cocktail competition will reflect the importance of working with fresh ingredients. We are challenging you, our bartender friends, to develop an original cocktail recipe with St. Germain, utilizing seasonal ingredients from your local region.
The editorial staff at Edible Communities, along with L’Equipe St. Germain leader Robert Cooper, will select one winner in each market where Edible Communities publishes a magazine.
Winners will be selected based on the following criteria:
• Flavor profile / balance of the cocktail
• Resourcefulness and creativity incorporating seasonal local ingredients (special consideration will be given to entrants who focus on local fruits, vegetables, spices, herbs or other products indigenous to your region)
• Note: It is not required that all other spirits be locally produced.
The local winner will receive some editorial coverage in their local Edible magazine as well as a Yarai (Japanese) Cocktail Mixing Glass from Cocktail Kingdom. Each local winner will then be eligible to win a $10,000 cash prize and be heralded as the national winner of the fourth annual Can-Can Classic Cocktail Competition.

Submissions will be accepted until August 31, 2011
