Palm Springs Partners with Stoli for Cocktail Challenge
Palm Springs, CA – Palm Springs is traveling across the country with Stolichnaya to find the best Palm Springs inspired drinks as part of the annual Palm Springs Summer Splash Cocktail Challenge presented by Here! Media, and the Palm Springs Bureau of Tourism.
“Stoli, the original flavored vodka, is very excited to be partnering with Palm Springs on this national Summer Splash Cocktail Challenge,” said Patrik Gallineaux, LGBT Ambassador for Stolichnaya. “With twelve fabulous flavors of Stolichnaya available, it only makes sense to partner on all twelve nationwide stops."
Palm Springs and Stoli ambassadors will host promotional nights at LGBT clubs including New York City, Seattle, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Las Vegas and more.
At each participating club, bartenders will create their own signature cocktails using a Stoli product and will be evaluated on presentation, taste and name. The bartenders will receive bonus points if “Palm” or “Springs” is in the name or recipe of the signature drink. A winner will be selected from each city and brought to Palm Springs to compete in a finale on June 2, 2011.
