This is a pretty cool contest the Alamodraft house has going. The grand prize is a 3 month All-You-Can Watch pass with 2 runner ups getting $50GCs for the Alamodraft house. They are looking for 2 new milkshakes. They want your help!
Here are the details:
Now through August 20th, Alamo fans and aspiring dessert craftsmen can submit their clever, crazy, or inspired milkshake idea using the following ingredient list:
- Vanilla ice cream soft serve base
- Monin syrup flavors of cherry, orange, strawberry, white peach, prickly pear, mint, chocolate, vanilla, and caramel
- Movie candies (must be on Drafthouse menu)
- Citrus juices or fruit juices
- Peanut butter, Nutella, or other spreads
- Sodas, draft beers, or wine (must be on Drafthouse menu)
- Baking spices (cinammon, nutmeg, clove, etc.)
The only other rule - for expediency's sake - is that the shake have no more than five total ingredients. Recipes can be submitted via Facebook, where Alamo beverage director Bill Norris and chef John Bullington will vet the entries for a judging round. Austinist has somehow joined the esteemed panel for the judging, while other milkshake experts will include Alamo founder Tim League, Norris, Bullington, and (according to the press release) "oil tycoon Daniel Plainview."
The grand prize winner of the milkshake contest will receive a 90 day all-you-can-watch pass to the Alamo Drafthouse of their choice, while two finalists from each metro area with an Alamo will each receive a $50 gift card. Since you don't actually have to make the milkshake, is there an excuse not to enter? One final note: points are also being awarded for the shake's name. Anything movie-themed would obviously be wise, as would an Alamo pun (Master PanShake, perhaps?) The winning shake will be featured on the Alamo menu for the Fall 2012 film season. Winners will be announced in early September.
