As we mentioned last week, we’re super stoked to have signed on smart cocktail guy Simon Ford to write a “drinking better” column for Food Republic. Ford, who holds the title of Global Spirits & Cocktail Brand Expert for Pernod Ricard USA, will be telling boozy stories from the road (he was recently in Stockholm, Havana and Los Angeles), as well as answering questions like: How do I build a home bar for under $200. How do I mix a rum Old Fashioned? What the hell is a kold-draft?
But, first things first. We need a name for this new column, and we’re asking for your help. Why do we need your help? Because Simon Sips doesn’t sound right. And Nobody Beats Simon is a little too retro. See guys, we need your help. So, please, add you suggestions to the comments section below. If we pick your entry you will have the pleasure of knowing that you named Simon Ford’s drinking column—and Simon Ford might buy you a drink sometime. In addition, simply by adding your suggested column name in the comments below you will be entered to WIN an Absolut bar kit. This includes:
- Boston Shaker
- Hand juicer
- Citrus peeler
- Hawthorn strainer
- Bar spoon
Sweepstakes entry deadline is Tuesday, March 13. You must be at least 18 years old and a resident of the United States to win. Here are the official rules.
