I was more than a little intrigued when I heard about the new Belvedere Black Raspberry Vodka nicknamed  Maceration. First I was surprised that a somewhat obscure culinary term was chosen as the buzz word for this new spirit that is flavored with fresh raspberries.

In case you didn’t know, maceration is what you’re doing when you let fruit sit in brandy overnight before making sangria. The liquor makes the fruit soften and release its flavors.

But the part about the new Belvedere vodka that really caught my attention was the Girl’s Night Out Contest. The winner and seven friends will be treated to a night out in a city near their home that includes being whisked around in a limo, dinner at a fine dining restaurant and an overnight at a posh hotel suite. The winner will also get to use a white leather and metallic Jonathan Kelsey Belvie Bag like the one shown below. Other prizes include a day at luxury spa. The contest is open to women 21 and over through July 31.

The Belvie bag by designer Jonathan Kelsey was made in a very limited edition of just 100.

Whether you win or not, try making the Midnight Rosé Fizz, a maceration-style summer cocktail shown above.

Midnight Rosé Fizz
3 fresh blackberries
dash agave nectar
3/4 oz Belvedere Black Raspberry vodka
Dash Peychaud bitters
3 to 4 ounces brut rose sparkling wine or champagne

Muddle berries with a dash of agave syrup. Shake with the bitters and vodka in a cocktail shaker filled with ice until well-chilled. Pour into a champagne flute and top with rosé sparkling wine or champagne. Garnish with a rose petal or other edible greenery.
