Calling All New Orleans Bartenders!

Just in time for Tales of the Cocktail, OffBeat and Herbsaint, two New Orleans originals, are teaming up to bring you the Melodic Mixology contest, a cocktail competition like no other.

Like music? Like booze? Like the sound of $500 cash, a weekend stay at the Hotel Monteleone, a pair of VIP tickets to the 2012 Voodoo Music Experience, and the chance to show off your mixology skills at Tales of the Cocktail?

If so, then the Melodic Mixology competition is right up your alley. All you have to do is create an original cocktail using Legendre Herbsaint 100 proof, name it after your favorite New Orleans song, and fill out the form below to enter.

Don’t wait! Submissions must be turned in by June 18.
