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 macerationisnatural.com 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.
