The Winner of the #NYCVAMPS Cocktail Contest is….

front bookmarkAsk and ye shall receive!

We asked the readers to give us some snazzy drink recipes for the Dead in the City cocktail contest and you all did not disappoint! There were lots of snazzy drink ideas and it was difficult to choose but I finally decided on  a winner and I can’t wait to make it.

The runner up and winner of the Vampire Trouble cocktail gift basket is Marcia B.!!!




The winner is…..Mz. BN

Here’s the winning recipe that was submitted.  Her drink will be featured in an upcoming Dead in the City novel and is now the signature cocktail for #NYCVAMPS! I chose this recipe because it’s sweet but has some bite with that grapefruit juice thrown in and that sure does fit my vampire chicks in NYC.

  • 1 cup ice
  • 2 oz mango juice
  • 2 oz strawberry juice
  • 1 oz apple juice
  • 1 oz grapefruit juice
  • 2 oz cucumber vodka
  • Blend and enjoy!

Now this will be perfect to make while I’m at the beach this week but there’s just one problem…we need a name for it! That’s where all of you come in.  What should we call this fruity, sweet, and snazzy drink?

If I select your cocktail name then you will get a shout in the acknowledgements of my next book too! Oh, and a $10 Amazon Gift Card! Woot! Comment below with your name for this cocktail recipe by Wednesday, August 13th!

Dream on….
