Entries needed for 'Mocktail' competition

By Chris Macias

How are your skills in making buzz-free cocktails? The California Office of Traffic Safety is seeking entries in its Mocktail Recipe Contest for non-alcoholic drinks - or "dranks," as we like to say. The winner of this contest takes home a Nook eReader and a $50 gift card for Barnes & Noble. To enter this contest, take a quick hiatus from playing Mafia Wars or Farmville and go to the contest's Facebook page for further instructions.

So who's going to help determine the winners? Me, that's who! I'm on the judging panel with Joe Anthony Savala, beverage manager at Zocalo restaurant, and Chris Cochran, assistant director for the California Office of Traffic Safety.

But hurry, because entries need to be received by tomorrow. Good luck, and let the best mocktail win.
