Enter to Win a Gulf Coast Vacation in the New Amsterdam Vodka Extreme Mary Contest

The Bloody Mary is truly a work of art.

Delicious on its own, this traditional cocktail is often given a flavorful spin by adding all kinds of food on top, including Alabama Gulf Seafood like fresh shrimp and oysters.

That’s why we’re thrilled to be partnering with the wonderful folks at New Amsterdam Vodka for the first-ever Extreme Mary Contest!

Once all the votes are tallied, one grand prize winner will take home a magnificent three-night vacation in Gulf Shores, featuring VIP tickets to the 2015 National Shrimp Festival, a half-day of charter boat fishing with High Cotton Charters, and lodging courtesy of Kaiser Realty by Wyndham Vacation Rentals.

Sound like something you’d be into? Here’s how to get your chance to win.

First, head to your local market or package store and pick up a bottle of New Amsterdam Vodka. (It’ll be the one with the fancy Alabama Gulf Seafood tag on it.)

Next, use that bottle of vodka to create the wildest, weirdest, tastiest Bloody Mary you can think of.

Then all you have to do is upload a photo of your Bloody Mary concoction to our contest page, or simply post your photo with the #ExtremeMaryContest hashtag. And since we’ll be putting it to a vote, it might help to spread the word and get those votes up.

As far as votes go, we’ll have four weekly rounds of voting starting today, July 16, and every contestant that makes the Top 5 each week will get an Alabama Gulf Seafood prize pack. Then on August 14, each week’s Top 5 will square off in our Top 20 showdown to determine one ultimate winner. (You can find more voting details on [our contest page].)

And the best part? For every Bloody Mary photo you upload and every vote received, New Amsterdam will make a donation to Alabama Gulf Seafood. Now that’s livin’ well for a good cause.

All you have to do is get out there and get creative. So drink up, eat up, and seize the day, Gulf seafood fans.
