Create easy-breezy summertime cocktails and mocktails bursting with local flavor using The Farmer’s Cow fresh all natural iced teas and lemonades #COWSummerSips
July 14, 2016 (Lebanon, CT) – The Farmer’s Cow is moo-ving behind the bar with a new cocktail recipe contest. Inspired by the popular line of seasonal Summer Beverages, Summer Sips invites amateur and professional cocktail enthusiasts to compete in a friendly throw-down of local flavor.
The challenge is to invent creative new drink recipes using any flavor of The Farmer’s Cow Iced Teas and Lemonades as a mixer. The prize is swag bag of The Farmer’s Cow fan gear. The winner will be chosen on August 20th in a random drawing.
Both alcoholic and non-alcoholic recipes are encouraged. With six flavors including Lemonade, Strawberry Lemonade and Watermelon Lemonade, anything goes. It’s easy to create great tasting drinks with as few as two or three simple ingredients. For even more local flavor, consider using as many locally-made ingredients as possible, including spirits, fruits, herbs or sodas.
“Customers love our Summer Beverages straight out of the bottle.,” said Robin Chesmer, managing member of The Farmer’s Cow. “Summer Sips is a fun contest to show people how easy it can be to mix up impressive and delicious cocktails and mocktails.”
The Farmer’s Cow Summer Beverages are available throughout southern New England at grocery stores, farm stands, farmers markets and food trucks from early spring through late fall. And now, Summer Sips is bringing the line of popular fresh juices to liquor stores, bars and restaurants.
Westford Hill Distillers and Infinity Music Hall are two of the first mixologists to create Summer Sips cocktail recipes. With fun names including “Eastern Hills Sunrise,” “Moo-jito,” “Cheap Sunglasses,” “Walkin’ on Sunshine” and “Summertime Blues,” these recipes show how varied and creative drink ideas can be.
