In the words of the late, great national treasure, Dale Winton “the next time you’re at the checkout and you hear the beep, think of the fun you could be having on Supermarket Sweep!”. This month London Cocktail Club’s world renowned bartender, JJ Goodman, will be stepping out from behind the bar to the check-out to celebrate his new step-by-step cocktail book Kitchen Cocktails, showcasing how delicious cocktails can be made using simple, supermarket ingredients.
Located on the ground floor of London Cocktail Club Shoreditch, the pop-up supermarket aisles, packed with classic everyday items from Coco Pops to bacon, will see ticket-goers race against the clock to gather the ingredients and inflatables to create their cocktail of choice and score one of the ‘cocktail-hack’ prizes. Tickets will be available from Design My Night for £30.00 per person, which includes three cocktails and an enormous amount of fun; you can book for groups of up to 20 between 12pm – 9pm daily, from Saturday 1 December 2018 – Saturday 23 February 2019.
SHOP & SWEEP
Guests will walk through the doors of the Cocktail Kitchen pop-up and meet JJ and the team with a cocktail on arrival. Once divided into teams, competitors will don their 90s-style primary colour jumpers before selecting their preferred cocktail from the Kitchen Cocktails book.
Raring to go,shopping basket in hand, they will then set off to the sound of an airhorn on a timed spin around the aisles of the Cocktail Kitchen supermarket to collect the ingredients needed for their drink of choice, battling it out to take the win. Combining elements from two of the UK’s most beloved tv shows, guests will be able to secure bonus prizes by spinning a Cocktail Wheel of Fortune and stuffing their baskets with the corresponding novelty inflatables.
CHECK OUT A COCKTAIL
Upon check out, challengers will take their shopping bags to the set-up kitchen area where LCC’s team of bartenders will be on-hand to guide budding mixologists on how to create incredible cocktails using the very simple ingredients gathered in the aisles.
Available from kitchen-cocktails.com for RRP £29.99, Kitchen Cocktails is the essential Christmas gift for cocktail lovers across the country looking to shake up winter warmers at home. As the festive party season (and supermarket shop) approaches, the time is ripe to join the revolution.
