Smirnoff vodka is currently sponsoring a contest to find an official cocktail consultant and is asking qualified boozehounds to send video resumes explaining why theyre perfect for the job.
But plain old drunks need not apply.
Contest spokesman Patti Constantino says the master mixer has to be someone who knows their way around the back end of a bar.
The chosen chug-a-lugger will get a $50,000 salary plus an equivalent expense account and job duties that include traveling to major cities to identify cocktail-concocting trends.
There is a downside: The winning candidate will actually have to work and create two reports for the company, entitled Smirnoff Cocktail Trend Reports.
For more information, call 1-888-217-4454 by next Thursday (Apr. 6).
