Is your original cocktail impressive enough for Lake Tahoe?

The revitalized West Shore Cafe & Inn on Lake Tahoe opened its doors in January, bringing another dimension to the lake's culinary and lodging scenes. Gearing up for summer, it's holding the inaugural Spirit of the West Shore Cocktail Competition. Here's how it works:

If you're got a recipe for an original cocktail - one that's "perfect for sipping on warm summer days" - you're invited to play. Submit your recipe to by Friday. If yours is among the top 10 drink recipes chosen by the judges, you'll be invited to the property on May 28 to concoct your adult beverage in person.

There, judges will taste and choose the one cocktail they think best reflects the free-wheeling summertime lifestyle on Lake Tahoe. It will be named the West Shore Cafe & Inn's signature drink.

To the winner go bragging rights and a 2011-2012 season ski pass to Alpine Meadows and Homewood Mountain resorts. The inn is at 5160 W. Lake Blvd., Homewood; (530) 525-5200.
