With the October 18th (Sunday) deadline quickly approaching for the 2015 DeKuyper Bartender Challenge, we encourage YOU to submit your own signature cocktail recipe! Yes, YOU!

Dekuyper’s many flavors are used to make a variety of cocktails for any occasion and season — like the Classic Manhattan — which features DeKuyper’s JDK & Sons premium orange liqueur. It’s simple, easy-to-make and the perfect cocktail to challenge their creativity when it comes to using liqueurs.

Fittingly, this Friday is National Liqueur Day, giving mixologists yet another reason to enjoy a DeKuyper cocktail and inspire any last-minute submissions to the Challenge!
