If, like us you:
a) love cocktails
b) love picnics
c) love convenience
...grab a bunch of friends and combine all three with the latest chapter in the beverage revolution.
The days of turning up our noses at pre-mixed drinks are long gone and now that we're used to drinking wine in a can, we can take things one step further and set the scene with pre-mixed cocktails.
Cocktail innovators Curatif has jumped on the cocktail campaign to harness the talents of Australia's most awarded and best-loved craft distilleries, Four Pillars Gin and Archie Rose Distilling Co to create quality cocktails ready to drink, and they're a little bit posh.
Starting with two classics - the Negroni and Espresso Martini - what's not to like? “Driven by quality, convenience and sustainability, we’ve achieved a new product category, the ultra-premium, ready to serve, canned cocktail that allows us to elevate the drinking occasion and entertaining experience at home,” says Curatif co-founder, Matt Sanger.
“Every detail from the Espresso Martini foam to the balance of Negroni ingredients has been carefully crafted with our brand partners to achieve perfection."Matt Sanger
The best bit is that just like a cocktail made for you in a bar, there's a little bit of ceremony behind the preparation but all the hard work has been done for you - much like pouring a can of Guinness.
Shake, wait, tap, pour and you'll get a lovely foam on top of a perfectly mixed cocktail, every time. "For the espresso martini, we have also worked with Seven Seeds Coffee Roasters to develop a unique espresso that would work with nitrogen to sustain the cocktail quality in a canned format.”
If you're looking for an excuse to combine cocktails with a cosy picnic, ditch the Thermos and grab a tinny instead.
