Whether you're broke, busy or just a major procrastinator -- time is running out if you're still hoping to score an in for the South Beach Wine and Food Festival. Luckily, Zignum Mezcal is giving away two free tickets to the hotly anticipated, sold-out Garden to Glass event -- so you could be one lucky bastard.
One Zignum Facebook fan will score the pair of tix to the mixology soiree at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden. The Saturday night even will feature Emeril Lagasse and Miami's own Bar Lab team, Elad Zvi and Gabe Ortal -- plus seafood selections from Miami Beach's My Ceviche.
To enter, like Zignum on Facebook and comment on the "Zignum Giveaway" post telling the brand what fresh ingredient you'd like to see in their next cocktail. The winner will be chosen at random and score two tickets.
The sponsor, Zignum Mezcal, is a premium form of mezcal, Mexico's oldest spirit.
In addition, Bar Lab will be serving the "Oaxacan Palate," a cocktail made with blood orange, smoked ancho chili and coriander bitters mixed with Zignum Mezcal.
Zignum's mixologist Chris Hudnall will also be making original cocktails using fresh ingredients and herbs, including the "Punta Cometa" (pictured).
Must be 21+ to enter. The last day to enter is February 19 -- the announcement will be made on February 20, and Zignum will make ticket pickup arrangements with the winner. The Garden to Glass event runs Saturday, February 22, from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden. Tickets are valued at $190.
