Recipe Wednesday: Fish Camp Cocktails and a Contest!

 Fish camp Cottage

     One of the best things about being at the beach is relaxing with a cocktail while enjoying the fresh ocean air. That’s a Fish Camp Cottage state of mind…and I couldn’t agree more! In fact, that is what has inspired the owners of the Fish Camp to have a contest!
     Join us on the Fish Camp Cottage Facebook page and help us come up with an official Fish Camp Cottage cocktail! The person with the winning recipe will receive a 3 day, 2 night stay at Fish Camp Cottage, complete with the fixin’s for your drink to enjoy during your stay! Your winning recipe will also be left for future guests to savor!
     So, round up your recipe and send it to fishcampcottage@yahoo.com! There will be pictures to come of the tasting of the top recipes after they are chosen in October, and our winner will be announced in November. We are also sharing the recipes here on our blog…and here are the first two! Enjoy!
