My apologies for not posting this sooner – the weekend got away from me a bit!
Last week, I invented a cocktail, and asked all of you to help me name it – and your responses blew me away. They were creative, funny, and fitting; truly interesting and each worthy in their own way of being a drink. Some of them have even inspired me to create other drinks just for them! Unfortunately, that’s left me with the monumental task of choosing one, and only one, for this particular cocktail.
After much deliberation and consultation with various sources, I narrowed it down to two choices.
You’ll notice I wrote TWO choices there. While math is not my forte, I’m certainly not that bad. I just really, truly couldn’t decide between these two terrific handles.
So once again, I’m asking for your help, loyal readers. Note that each of these folks will receive a prize just for making it this far – but only one will be associated with this noble beverage.
Please vote for your favorite! The poll will close this Friday, October 30 and we’ll have a name by Halloween. Advocating for your choice is allowed in the comments, but please keep it civil.
A few other notes:
The name Bittersweet almost made it into this poll, but I decided was actually an alternative version of this drink, replacing the Punt e Mes with Aperol for its brilliant orange hue. As soon as I purchase some Aperol I will experiment and publish some photos. Kate and the McTegos will also receive a runner’s up prize.
The Edgar Allan Pomme, while not appropriate for this drink, will be its own cocktail. Look for that recipe in 2-3 weeks!
Also, a huge thank you to everyone who contributed a name to this contest of mine. I’m really grateful that you’re all reading this blog and playing along with my games!
Finally, I haven’t forgotten the results of my last poll – broccoli was the big winner! (Or loser, depending on how you view it.) A recipe to help you learn to love that much-maligned vegetable is coming this week!
