Thank You

Mango By Sea Won

We're thrilled to announce that Mango by the Sea, created by our very own amateur mixologist and Slow Food Glades to Coast co-chair, Irene Jade, was one of the four winners in the Slow Food Speakeasy Cocktail Competition.  

Irene will now join the Slow Food USA delegation at Terra Madre in Turin, Italy this October, and will make her creation during a special celebration of American cocktail culture.

In our first "Vote for Mango by the Sea" email we wrote that Irene would not be the only winner in this competition. ... We all won by supporting and celebrating our local Florida farmers and artisan producers, and promoting mangoes during our upcoming mango season.
