No Pink Drinks, Please – Bourbon Women Contest Opens

Grab those shakers – the annual Not Your Pink Drink cocktail contest is accepting entries. Hosted by the Bourbon Women Association, the Not Your Pink Drink encourages both professional and amateur mixologists to create a cocktail that reflects the spirit of the Bourbon Woman.

“Bourbon Women are smart, sophisticated, confident and adventurous,” said association founder Peggy Noe Stevens. “And they prefer their cocktails to be as bold as they are.”

Submissions will be accepted through July 27. Entries should include bourbon and no more than three ingredients – and the finished drink cannot be pink. Judges will evaluate based on taste, convenience, relevance and creativity. Winners will be announced at the Bourbon Women SIP-osium Conference in August. For more info, visit bourbonwomen.org.
