FINAL ROUND RECAP & CONTEST WRAP-UP

The DIABOLO Summer Cocktail Crafting Contest has concluded with the FINAL ROUND! The contest featured three separate rounds that allow amateur mixologists to show off their skills by using a different DIABOLO Sparkling French Lemonade flavor in each round. The action was judged by five-time cocktail cookbook author Jules Aron, who also provided inspiration by crafting her own original spiked lemonade recipes for every round.

ORANGE YOU CURIOUS WHO WON?
For the Final Round contestants were challenged to implement one of the most versatile DIABOLO sparkling lemonade flavors… TANGERINE POMEGRANATE. Jules reported that we had so many crafty concoctions created that she had a hard time picking a winner and deciding which delightfully tangy elixir would take the top prize. After much deliberation, here are the winning entries for this round of cocktails:

 

TIME TO ANNOUNCE THE WINNERS!


CONTEST WINNER:
‘TANGERINE DREAMS’, created by @drinkpalmbeach! The build on this refreshing elixir includes silver tequila, Grand Marnier, orange juice, and of course DIABOLO Tangerine Pomegranate. We can’t think of a better beverage to help us close out summer – one sip will transport you to your happy place.

RUNNER-UP: We had so many great entries this round that we wanted to give a shout-out to the runner-up for this round: @zenandtonic.co and her drink, the ‘TANGY TIKI’     

       

This concludes our Summer Cocktail Crafting Social Media Contest so we wanted to thank all the participants that helped make this summer sparkle a little more. Also a big shout out to our resident mixologist and contest judge Jules Aron (@julesaron) for her deliciously inspirational recipes and expertise.

Au revoir!
