Whether your New Year’s resolution is to do a one-month cleanse or to celebrate life more (with the help of a few cocktails), this contest is for YOU!
I’ve partnered with the Vancouver-based artisans behind Bittered Sling to offer one Open Kitchen subscriber a beautiful gift set of six craft bitters (value: $50), as featured in my most recent blog post, Bitters for Sipping and Cooking. You can use them to add natural flavour to everything from sparkling water to meat glazes to classic cocktails. The flavours included in the pack are: Plum & Rootbeer, Moondog (a smoky, earthy extract), Denman (a blend of South Asian spices), Grapefruit & Hops, Orange & Juniper, and Lem-Marrakech.
The contest is open to Open Kitchen subscribers only, so if you haven’t signed up yet to receive notifications of new stories and recipes, please fill in the subscribe box on the top-right-hand side of the homepage: valsopenkitchen.com.
Then to enter the contest, simply answer the following question in the comments section below this post:
What cocktail makes your heart sing (and why)?
The contest closes on Jan 7, 2014 at midnight, ET. You must be aged over 18 and resident in Canada to enter.
A winner will be picked at random.

Thanks to everyone who entered this contest. So many fantastic suggestions and such enthusiasm for the topic–next time I have a cocktail potluck, you’re ALL invited!
Our winner, chosen by randompicker.com, is: Beverly Monk.
Her cocktail of choice was the ginger marguerita. She finished her submission with the words: “Please God, let me win this contest,” and apparently He was listening.
There will be more contests coming up this month, so please keep checking in at valsopenkitchen.com. Bye for now! xo
