Last call! Colorado Cocktail Contest entries due at midnight

Sean Kenyon has issued the very last call for entries in the Colorado Cocktail Contest: Your entry must be received at bartender@westword.com no later than midnight tonight.

Once again, the rules:

* The base spirit (at least half of the spirit in the cocktail) must be a Colorado spirit -- one produced by a Colorado distiller.

* There's a seven-ingredient maximum, including garnish

* All ingredients must be commercially available (your homemade JuJu Double Mocha Bitters, for example, would be difficult to reproduce in someone's home or in another bar)

* So that the judges (and the public) can sample all entries, the cocktails must be available at the bartender's establishment, preferably on a menu, from April 11 through June 10.

To enter, cut and paste the form below into the body of an e-mail and send it to Bartender@westword.com.
