Belvedere Black Raspberry Julep + Girls Night Out Sweepstakes

Quick Jump To » Comments

Belvedere Black Raspberry Vodka

In celebration of Belvedere Vodka‘s hip new Black Raspberry flavor, which is made from raspberries and black currants (and tastes great in a vodka press!), Belvedere is currently hosting a “Girls Night Out” Sweepstakes where one lucky grand prize winner and 7 of her friends will be treated to a night out on the town!

The prize night will include: 2 mini suites at a luxurious hotel, dinner at a fancy-shmancy restaurant, access to and bottle service at a trendy nightclub, and 9 hours of limo transporation – all in the closest major market city to the winner’s hometown. Sounds like fun to me! For complete rules & details on how to enter, visit and click on the “win a private maceration party” link. (Contest ends July 31st.)

Belvedere’s maceration website is actually quite beautiful – just like their vodka bottles! (“Maceration” is Belvedere’s distinctive process of soaking vodka in fresh fruit.) The website features lots of downloadable recipes and party tips, including the Black Raspberry Julep featured here:

Belvedere Black Julep
2 oz Belvedere Black Raspberry
6 fresh raspberries
.5 oz simple syrup
Handful mint leaves

Assemble ingredients in a julep glass and top with crushed ice. Garnish with a mint sprig and fresh raspberry.

    The link to the website doesn’t seem to be working for me… is it up?

    Hi Jenny –
    The same thing is happening for me now, but other people are able to pull the site up. It’s all done in flash so there might be a glitch with some browsers displaying the content correctly. I’ll check in with them and see if there’s another way to get to it so you can enter!

    Mmmm…the black julep sounds so good . Thanks for the head’s up about the contest – this would be so fun to win :)

    Bummer the contest is void in Calfornia. Maybe our state wouldn’t be in such a budget mess if they let companies do these kinds of parties and just taxed them more!

    The cocktail sounds yummy! The photos from one of Belvedere’s pop-up parties are very inspirational; I love the chic, modern/minimalist feel.
