Share a Coke & WIN this Summer!

Share a Coke and WIN this Summer with Coborn's & Viking Coke! www.cobornsblog.comThere’s a fun campaign that’s happening this summer and I’m amazed at how many memories it has triggered from my youth! “Share a Coke” is all about reviving that tried-and-true fun of enjoying a Coke with friends.

Find your name!

There are two parts to this campaign that really grabbed my attention. First, Coke is swapping out the logos on its 20-oz. bottles for the 250 most popular first names among American teens and Millennials. What a surprise to see my name made the top 250! If your name isn’t on the list, you can go to shareacoke.com and create a virtual personal pop. Plus, there are a number of fun and neutral bottles to choose from, such as Family, Buddy, Wingman, and so on.

Share A Coke U.S.A.

The second part of the promotion to catch my eye is the social media interaction. By using the #ShareaCoke hashtag, Coke drinkers can share their stories and photos for the chance to be featured on interactive Coke billboards across the country.

Win with Coborn’s & Viking Coke!

To come back to what this means here locally, we invite Coborn’s customers can take a selfie holding a coke. Simply snap the picture, upload the photo onto Facebook or Instagram, and tag Viking Coca-Cola Bottling Company and Coborn’s. Every photo that’s uploaded will be entered into drawings for over $500 in prizes. There will also be a photo area at Lake George for the July 9, 16 and 23 Summertime by George! events with the same concept. Bonus: when you stop by the Summertime by George! booth, you also will receive a BOGO coupon.

In this modern day land of selfies, who can resist taking a picture of a personalized coke! Good luck and don’t forget to Share a Coke this summer!

Joe’s Tri-Tip Grilled Roast

The Winner Says:
“I make this roast year round and mostly for special occasions. The tri-tip roast can be hard to find; it is generally not in the display case. But if you ask your Coborn’s butcher, they willgladly cut a fresh one for you, thanks to the meat department at the St. Joe Coborn’s!”

Ingredients
3 T Olive Oil
2 T Dijon Mustard
1/3 C Soy Sauce
2 T Red Wine Vinegar
1 T Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 C Brown Sugar
2 T Sliced Green Onion
1 T Minced Garlic
1 T Kosher Salt
2 tsp Ground Pepper

Instructions In measuring cup, whisk together marinade, reserving 1/3 of marinade. Place roast in sealable bag with 2/3 of marinade; seal bag, squeezing out all air. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.

Prepare charcoal grill for indirect heat, with coals on each side. Remove roast from marinade 30 minutes before grilling; set aside. Once grill is at 350 degrees, sear roast on all sides over direct heat, then move to indirect heat. Cook for 45 minutes for medium rare, or until 125 degrees.

Remove from grill and let rest 5 – 10 minutes before slicing. Heat reserved marinade, slice roast against the grain and drizzle with the sauce.
