One of the deciding factors in the judging process though will be the cost of the drink. As we want to have the winner available to buy at the hotel, a hugely expensive drink won't be chosen... case in point...




(2014) World's most expensive cocktail goes on sale for nearly £9,000: Flute contains vintage Cristal and rare 'liquid gold' Armagnac
The Gigi's was unveiled last night at opening of Gigi's restaurant in Mayfair
Created for Grace Jones - and for the rich who 'don't need to ask the price'
£8,888 cocktail contains 1888 Samalens Vieille Relique Vintage Bas Armagnac


The hotel will also be supplying us with a list of ingredients to choose from - ones that they already have in stock or can easily source as it would be no use having ingredients not available locally.

However, depending on how many entries we get I may include a page of recipes in the convention magazine so you could still submit the one you mentioned.

That would be a cool addition I think!

Waits calmly for rules drinking a cider  :)

Awww ... can't wait to reveal my idea, so:

Irena's Cocktail Bar proudly presents
The ultimate Stargate Cocktail(s)
"Window Of Opportunity"
(hoping the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel Bar will have in stock all ingredients, since they seem to be usual ones)

At this point I wanted to show you a picture of my "Windows of Opportunity", but unfortunately I can neither insert an image nor include an attachment. But you can see them here: https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/vEtGHDZMcvKBO8Wfe-ZiKh_DkiJXcf_JOEeaZea3nXI?feat=directlink

1. To create a pure clear "Window Of Opportunity":

    you need
  • 1/2 oz. Vodka
  • 1/2 oz. White Rum
  • 1 oz. Triple Sec
  • 1/4 oz. Lemon juice
  • 3 - 4 oz Seven Up (or Sprite or a similar lemonade)
    Mix Vodka, Rum, Triple Sec and Lemon juice and pour it into an oversized cocktail (Martini) glass or a highball glass one-quarter filled with crushed ice, add the lemonade
    … and enjoy!

2. To open the gate and explore new worlds:

    take the in N°1 mentioned ingredients and add
  • 1/2 oz. Blue Curacao
    Mix Vodka, Rum, Triple Sec, Lemon juice and Blue Curacao and pour it into an oversized cocktail glass or a highball glass one-quarter filled with crushed ice, add the lemonade
    … and you’ll have a go!

3. To reach a new score in Stargate Golfing:

    take the in N°1 mentioned ingredients and add
  • 1/2 oz. Blue Curacao
  • 1 – 1 1/2 oz. Red Bull (or any other Energy drink)
    Mix Vodka, Rum, Triple Sec, Lemon juice and Blue Curacao and pour it into an oversized cocktail glass or a highball glass one-quarter filled with crushed ice, add Energy drink and lemonade
    … and start golfing!

4. To make the Sam-Jack-Relationship happen:

    take the in N°1 mentioned ingredients and add
  • 1/2 oz. Grenadine
    Mix Vodka, Rum, Triple Sec, Lemon juice and Grenadine and pour it into an oversized cocktail glass or a highball glass one-quarter filled with crushed ice, add the lemonade
    … and dream on!

5. To do whatever you want:

    take the in N°1 mentioned ingredients and add
  • your favourite adding from the bar
    Mix Vodka, Rum, Triple Sec, Lemon juice and your most liked ingredient and pour it into an oversized cocktail glass or a highball glass one-quarter filled with crushed ice, add the lemonade
    … and use your opportunity!
Not angry you be if Yoda grammar I use. :)

Good point, you would think stem ginger would be readily available. Will ask that very question to the hotel!

It's a no to ginger I'm afraid.
I'm guessing they want to steer clear of committing to too many fresh ingredients

So we can sacrifice it to the Dark Lord Sokar at the end of the con?
