If you’ve ever mixed a cocktail so good you impressed yourself, this giveaway is for you. Mionetto Prosecco wants you to create a cocktail (using Mionetto Prosecco, of course), and send in the recipe complete with a photo, a clever cocktail name, and a line or two about how you were inspired to create it. That’s all it takes to win two (count ‘em, two) all-expenses-paid trips for you and a guest: one to Las Vegas and one to Italy. What’s more, anyone can send in as many cocktails as they can drum up.
Of course, that grand prize will only go to the one ultimate winner, after he or she is whittled down from thousands of contestants. But the consolation prizes for the other top 10 winners — barware from OXO and designer Italian watches — aren’t anything to scoff at.
The giveaway, which is divided into two competitions for amateurs and professionals, helps Mionetto kick off their 125th anniversary celebrations, which the winner’s Italy trip will coincide with. The first trip is to Bon Appetit’s Vegas Uncork’d festival, which is set to be a four-day extravaganza of tastings, dinners, wine pairings, lunches, and entertainment like only Vegas can offer. Then, part two is the jaunt to idyllic and wine-soaked Valdobbiadene, Italy, which is the home of Mionetto Prosecco, and sits in the heart of Treviso.
Not only can you submit as many recipes as your heart desires, but you can garner votes however you can, by posting your cocktail to Facebook, Twitter, etc. Tell friends to keep in mind that even voters are automatically entered to win an all-expenses-paid trip to the Vegas Uncork’d weekend.
That’s one lucky friend you have — not only can you make a mean cocktail, but they’ll be jet-setting because of it! Mixologists are already submitting cocktails and garnering tons of votes, so get to mixing.
