Drinks on me

By Remy Raitt

So, you are holding a digs party, hosting a pre-drinks or just keen to find a more creative way to get you into the party mood.The Activate team has decided to hook you up with some killer (and cost-effective) drink recipes that are sure to spice up your shindig.

Up first is an awesome punch recipe for a party, known to many as “The Whopatooli”. The night before the party, mix a bottle of rum, a bottle of vodka, a packet of raspberry tang, 2 litres of Sprite and 2 litres of ginger ale. Then massacre a variety of fruits and chuck them in. Cover the concoction and let the fruit soak overnight in the fridge. Just before the party, add 6 to 10 cans of beer. You have to add it later otherwise it goes stale, which tastes manically siff with the fruit! Add ice and serve.

Apparently it is summer, so we thought a refreshing sundowner would be in order.  Why not whip up a batch of “Yuccas”. Grab some lemons, tequila or vodka, crushed ice and sugar. Bash them together in a bucket (with a lid) and serve in frosted, sugar-rimmed glasses. Delicious but deceiving. Sigh.

Aloha, welcome to the land of Hawaiian jelly shots. All you need to enter this utopia is a bottle of Malibu (or Vin Coco if you’re cheap), a dash of pineapple juice and a packet of lemon jelly powder. Mix the ingredients together and pour into tot glasses. Let them set overnight and voila. These little bad boys are fun to suck down and have proven to liven up any get together.

For all those who prefer to have fun without lowering your inhibitions why not give a “Virgin Mary” a go. Just mix tomato juice, salt and pepper together. Add both a splash of Worcestershire and Tabasco sauce, and garnish with a few celery sticks. This mini-meal can be enjoyed anytime of the day, but is especially popular during brunch. I’m not sure if brunch goes down in Grahamstown – but come on, start a trend.

    The president of PowerCap- manufacturer Liquid Health Labs has refuted Anders Eisner’s claim that his company had an exclusive contract to use the innovative packaging as part of Eisner’s new enhanced water brand.

    Eisner – son of former Disney Chairman and CEO Michael Eisner – last week told Beverage Digest that his company, Activate Drinks, had secured an “exclusive license” for the cap he planned to use.

    But that’s not the case, according to Derek Hopkins, president of Liquid Health Labs. Hopkins said Activate purchases the caps from Liquid Health Labs, but the relationship is not exclusive.

  2. Hi, Neat post. There’s a problem along with your site in web explorer, could test this… IE nonetheless is the market leader and a large element of people will pass over your great writing because of this problem.
