enter-now-large-stroked1Organic Ocean Vodka and Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa have partnered to create “The Ultimate Ocean Cocktail Contest”! A spirited treasure hunt near and far, we are looking for the Ultimate Ocean Cocktail and invite you to submit your recipe for a chance to win a headline on a menu in paradise for a year, as well as a stay at the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa in Maui. You can be a professional bartender or spirits aficionado, an amateur mixologist, backyard bartender, or anything in between! Follow the rules and give it your best pour.

Submissions will be accepted by email or website form submission from July 15 to August 29, 2014. We will narrow to four finalists from the state of Hawaii and four national finalists.
