As we celebrate christmas and new year’s eve in our homes this year, the people behind the clever collections at Friary Drinks and Still Sisters gin are delighted to share their manifesto for ‘Mindful Mixing’. Coinciding with the release of their manifesto, the brilliant sisters behind both brands, Tori and Hannah, have set the people of the UK a challenge to create the best at home mini-bar, drinks trolly, gin shelf or such like, as part of the #mindfulmixing competition, encouraging us all to savour our sip of choice, and share our creations on social media.
Mindful Mixing Manifesto Explained
Welcome to the wonderful world of tipsy evenings, delighting in the occasion of assembling your favourite tipple and taking time to relish each sip. The home of creative couples, playful parents, giggling girls nights and kitchen table connoisseurs. For in the land of Mindful Mixing, we invite you to throw off your shackles, pick up your cocktail shakers and seize your eccentricity.
When you embrace Mindful Mixing, the goal is to celebrate and savour your drink. Grab your garnishes and glassware, and garner the get-togethers of yore, where theatre, ceremony and a sprinkling of imagination are heartily cheered.
So channel the spirit of Sinatra, the pizzazz of Piaff and the gallantry of Gatsby. A world that celebrates small batch distilling, reveres hand selected botanicals and lauds flamboyant finishing touches.
For Mindful Mixing is all about the moment, whether by oneself or amongst friends. And by savouring each sip, appreciating each aperitif, garnishing your glass, you are in the driving seat. Your preference, your way.
One half of the Still Sisters duo, Tori Jordan, said: “so whether you savour a Singapore Sling, are mad about Martini’s, or desire a Dark & Stormy, switch off your devices, dim the lights, slide over the drinks trolley and settle in for an evening of Mindful Mixing.”
How to Enter
Participants who share photos of their at-home drinks set up on social media, tagging both @stillsistersgin and @friarydrinks with the hashtag #mindfulmixing, will be in with a chance of winning a rather cool Gin Trolley, worth £250, and £100 gift vouchers to stock up at friarydrinks.com. Five runners up will receive prizes of £25 vouchers for friarydrinks.com. The competition closes midnight on 1st January 2021, entries will be judged and the winners will be chosen by 5th January 2021.
So get creative, polish off that mirrored top, find the cocktail sticks in the back of the cupboard and may the best Mindful Mixer win!
