The challenge, for those who may not have been following developments here, was to create a cocktail, alcoholic or non-alcoholic, of your choice, either your unique twist on a classic cocktail or a concoction of your very own creation. Any alcohol, liqueur, mixer, juice, garnish or ingredient was allowed. We were looking for a delicious sounding and sexy cocktail - either with a sexy name, sexy or cheeky background story, or a sexy looking presentation, or best of all, ALL THREE!!!

We would like to say a huge "Thank You" to all our fabulous participants and especially to our blogger friends, for taking the time to think up, execute, photograph, post and send in your entries. Without all of you, there would've been no challenge! Your enthusiasm was amazing and we could not be more pleased with the outcome. You also made it nearly impossible to decide on the winner. I would also like to thank Lazaro for his unfailing support and friendship. If you have not experienced his creative genius, in the kitchen, please take a little time to visit his wonderful blog.

Now without further preamble, Lazaro and I proudly present the parade of gorgeous entries for the
