“It needs to be refreshing and easy to make.”

On Dec. 30, a series of judges will sample each drink during a blind taste test and the winning recipe will be served at all participating pubs and restaurants during Celebrate Twice.

“The contest is a great way for establishments to work together,” said Jenkins. “It’s very collaborative and one of the great things about Gulf County people is that they know how to work together.”

Jenkins has plans to travel to New York and Birmingham, Al. in the New Year to meet with editors, journalists and bloggers to promote Gulf County.

At each stop, Jenkins will hold a reception for members of the media. Traditionally, when promoting an area, food from a local chef is served alongside music from the community.

The goal of Jenkins’ trip is to bring Gulf County to those cities and said that a signature drink would be something fun and out of the norm.

“I’m always thinking, ‘how can we be different?’” said Jenkins. “I don’t know of any other destination that has an official drink.”
