There is still time to enter the Marie Brizard Toast to HERStory Competition!
Chilled partnered with Marie Brizard to conduct the 2021 Toast to HERStory cocktail competition. The brand is challenging bartenders across the U.S. to create a cocktail that honors a woman who has inspired them.
The top 25 bartenders will be chosen on June 7. They will be required to submit a video of themselves creating their HER-inspired cocktail by June 21. The judges, Dale and Julie, will review the video submissions, and on June 28, one overall winner will be announced.
Head to the site to submit your cocktail entry. The winner will receive a trip to Bordeaux, France, along with a $1,000 cash prize!
Here is some cocktail inspiration for the contest.
