Douglas Fir springs, mint, lime … We’re talking Mocktails, Timbers-style | The Backcut

Douglas Fir sprigs…
Cucumber wheels…
Jalapeno ring…
Mint leaves…

No, we’re not talking about what’s in Timber Joey’s pre-game power shake, but the key ingredients in some of the 12 tasty contenders for the official 2015 Timbers official mocktail. And YOU can help us determine the winning concoction to be served at Providence Park next season.

The 12 mocktails, including the appropriately named “If A Tree Falls …,” “Quiver Me Timbers” and “Providence Park’s Passion Punch,” are all listed on the website of FOX 12, complete with ingredient lists. Sorry, no sampling.

Here is where you come in. Supporters will help whittle the 12 contenders down to three finalists with a fan vote. Click here to cast your vote. Get your votes in before Sunday, Oct. 12, and be entered to win a signed Timbers jersey and a set of four tickets to our regular-season, home finale Oct. 17 against Real Salt Lake.

Following the fan vote, the three mocktail finalists will be reviewed by a panel of judges at the Timbers viewing party on Oct. 25 at Rose & Thistle Pub.

The winning mocktail will be served at all Cascadia Cup matches at Providence Park during the 2015 campaign.

In closing, we leave you with this. Yes, Doug Fir sprigs is really an ingredient in one of the mocktails.

You never know. If it tastes good, it may end up on Timber Joey’s shopping list.
