For 2008's annual "mini Shmitzu" gathering in Maine, Jenny Pigg slyly proposed a contest to develop The Shmitzu Cocktail. Each entry had to include not just a drink, but a descriptive "tag line."

Brundage and I took the bait. Or the olive. Or whatever one takes for a cocktail contest. The three of us channeled the Iron Chef and mixed our candidate concoctions. (We did not set them to simmer and take off the scum....)

The judges declared a three-way tie. So, try 'em all and chose for yourself.
