Mionetto -- in Partnership With Time Inc.'s Food & Wine -- Opens Submissions for Second Annual 'Mionetto Cocktail Challenge'

WHITE PLAINS, NY--(Marketwired - May 05, 2017) - Mionetto announces the call for submissions for the second annual 'Mionetto Cocktail Challenge.' Working in partnership with Time Inc.'s Food & Wine, contestants across the country will be able to submit an original Mionetto sparkling cocktail recipe into one of two groups: bartending professionals and consumers (intended for the general public). After narrowing down the submissions, the top three finalists in each category will be invited to a special mix-off event at the Food & Wine test kitchen in New York City. The professional champion will be featured in Food & Wine and the consumer champion will receive a trip for two to Italy, to visit the land of Prosecco. Finalists will be determined by Justin Noel, top NYC-based mixologist, Food & Wine editor, and Enore Ceola, managing director and CEO of Mionetto USA.

"It is a common perception that Prosecco is easily interchangeable with other sparkling wines, but this competition really shows the uniqueness and complexity that only Prosecco can bring to a cocktail," said Justin Noel. "This is a passion project of mine and I am truly honored to be involved in the search for the best Prosecco cocktail recipes from across the U.S. These contestants share our passion for Mionetto and crafting high-quality Prosecco and sparkling cocktails."

The inaugural challenge in 2016 received over 600 entries, but ultimately two cocktails reigned supreme. On the consumer level, Dassy Pawlik from Buffalo, New York won with her inspired recipe, "Pompelmo Spruzzo," which took the Mionetto Prosecco Brut to another level. Meanwhile, the professional winner Patti Scarf from Kalamazoo, Michigan took a refreshing approach with the "Cucumber Fizz," pairing the flagship Mionetto Prosecco Brut with cucumber, gin, and simple syrup.
