What to drink now: The Drinks Drop

The 7th of September saw the official launch of The Drinks Drop – the discerning drinker’s at home cocktail delivery service – bringing ready to sip top flavor cocktails to drinks aficionados nationwide. With an increase in demand for restaurant-quality produce to be easily delivered and enjoyed at home, The Drinks Drop will now allow people to savour expertly mixed cocktails prepared by teams from the world’s best bars, without having to leave their front door.

The online platform will first launch with a collection of twenty ready-mixed cocktails, created by twenty partner establishments; ten in London and ten in Manchester. The cocktail recipes used will be exclusive to The Drinks Drop and designed in tandem with some of the industry’s most prestigious brands and spirits.

Award-winning London icon, Artesian will be serving up a Tanqueray Gimlet featuring Tanqueray No. Ten, grapefruit cordial and Absinthe for a crisp and citrus lead aperitif. Tiki bar, Laki Kane has created the Espresso Mulatini, with Cuban Rum, rubis chocolate wine, rapadura, espresso, Guinness and Supasawa for a smooth and indulgent espresso martini alternative. Whilst, internationally renowned cocktail bar, Coupette has designed a light and refreshing Corpse Reviver Highball with Eight Lands Vodka, Lillet Blanc, Cointreau, Green Chartreuse and lemon verbena tea.

Manchester favourite, Crazy Pedro’s will be offering a twist on the ultimate classic cocktail with a Watermelon Margarita featuring Patron Silver, Monin watermelon, and Supasawa for a deliciously sweet tangy taste. SCHOFIELD’S cocktail bar has teamed up with Belvedere Vodka to create the Bouquet Martini, a delicate floral twist on the classic martini served with a large dose of SCHOFIELD’S Dry Vermouth and French elderflower liqueur. Negroni lovers can opt to try Hawksmoor Manchester’s autumnal Plum Negroni with Empirical Spirits for a fruity twist.

Fabrice Limon and Barrie Wilson, Creators of The Drinks Drop comment, “We are thrilled to be able to support the bar industry regain momentum following the COVID-19 crisis, creating a unique business opportunity for both brands and bars alike. With an increasing consumer demand for enjoying professional-level food and beverage at home, we are sure that The Drinks Drop will help us all transition back to normality and far beyond.”

The Drinks Drops platform will initially launch three services allowing consumers to receive boxes of six cocktails the day after placing an order, (available nationwide), same day bike delivery of individual cocktails, (London and Manchester only) and a bespoke cocktail creation service for a truly unique encounter, perfect for large events, celebrations and personal pleasure. Ranging in serves from straight up, on the rocks, highball and lowball, all consumers will need to do is chill, pour and share, with no further mixing needed.

Whether the nation is looking to impress their guests when entertaining, pair top- notch food with high quality cocktails at home or simply ensure Friday drinks at work get that little bit sweeter, The Drinks Drop will provide the necessary tools in order to #StayInHighSpirits.
