I asked on the TNT Diner twitter account (@tntdiner) for Tacoma bars to email me drink recipes last week and I got an interesting reply: tweeted cocktail recipes from Hotel Murano (@hotel_murano), which is a frequent tweeter in the tweeta-verse.
I liked the idea so much, I thought I'd propose it here as a TNT Diner contest with a cocktail recipe book and a cookbook as prizes for the best cocktail tweets. Click "more" for details and to get the tweeted recipes from Hotel Murano.
It started with a tweet from Hotel Murano marketing guru Dina Nishioka (find her @dinanishioka on twitter.com).
My tweet: @hotel_murano @merende @PacificGrill @TheMixTacoma @DoylesPub @WoodysH2O @varsitygrill Need cocktail recipes for story. Have any? Pls email!
Never miss a local story.

We had some funny exchanges via twitter.com after that. And it made me think that we ought to do a Twitter cocktail contest. So, Tweeters, send us 140 character tweets about cocktails @tntdiner on twitter.com. You can tweet us a recipe, a review of a cocktail at a local bar, a cocktail tweet haiku, or anything about cocktails. Make sure you use @tntdiner in your tweet so we see your entry.
We'll award our favorite tweet a cocktail recipe book and a cookbook.
Deadline for cocktail tweets is Oct. 26. I'll publish all the cocktail tweets here.
And if you're not following us already, find us on twitter.com at @tntdiner.
