Kamloops, BC: The 2012 Tourism Kamloops Cocktail Competition is underway. 2012’s competition is embracing the celebration of Kamloops’ Bi-Centennial whereby participating establishments will concoct their cocktail as an interpretation of the history of Kamloops. Using a maximum of six ingredients, the competing cocktails will be included on the establishment’s menu for the duration of the summer season (July 9th – September 4th). Voting will take place on a weekly basis at
www.tourismkamloops.com/cocktail , with finalists moving on to the next round until July 30th, at which time the top five cocktails will be announced. “We’re excited to be hosting the Kamloops Cocktail Competition once again. This event showcases our
diverse hospitality industry and encourages locals and visitors to celebrate a significant historical milestone for Kamloops in a festive, summer-inspired fashion,” said Tourism Kamloops’ CEO, Ms. Lee Morris.

On August 9th, a panel of judges will assemble at St. Andrews on the Square to sample the five final creations and select the overall winner. The 2012 Kamloops Cocktail campaign combines the innovation of local restaurateurs with the
celebration of Kamloops’ Bi-Centennial, all in the spirit of embracing summer in Kamloops.
