The DIABOLO Summer Cocktail Crafting Contest carries on! This contest has 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 contest is being judged by five-time cocktail cookbook author Jules Aron, who will also be providing inspiration by crafting her own original spiked lemonade recipes for every round.
ROUND TWO WAS ON FIRE!
This round was ablaze with heated competition and some truly fiery concoctions! The chosen DIABOLO flavor for this round was Dragon Fruit Plum. We were expecting to see some dangerously tasty beverages, and we were not disappointed. The competition was fierce with almost THREE TIMES more entries than round one, which made it very difficult to choose a winner.
So we ended up doing something we never planned to do, shout-out a couple of runner-ups along with the winner! Without further ado, here they are:
CONTEST WINNER: Trina Segreto (@trinasegreto) presented us with the Summer Sunset Tropical Martini. This amazing drink featured infused vodka, St. Germain, and even herbal tea! Mmmmmmmm delish! Trina will go home with our grand prize of a limited edition DIABOLO Summer Swag Bag! Congrats Trina!
Runner-up: Michelle Aka Ging (@jackngingvintage) with her beautiful cocktail, Fire Dragon, featuring muddled jalapeño for an extra “fire” kick!
Runner-up: Raena LeBourne (@raenalb) with her amazing creation, Summer Dragon Fruit Spritz, which features fresh lemon juice and is topped with mint.
Stay tuned to our website and Instagram for updates on our final round, where a new flavor of DIABOLO Sparkling Lemonade will be featured! We can’t wait to see what you guys come up with next!!
