PLACES WE WILL BE
& dates we celebrate
DRY JANUARY 2021
NATIONAL BLOODY MARY DAY JAN 1 2021
National Egg Nogg Day - December 24 2020
National Screwdriver Day - 14 December 2020
National Harvey Wallbanger Day - 8 November 2020
There are a few theories of the origins of this classic cocktail, our favourite being it was named after a party guest called Harvey who banged his head against a wall when suffering a hangover from the drink. Well, there's no need to follow in this eponymous fellow's footsteps, but we do find there is always a time and a place for a well made Harvey Wallbanger.
Sober October 2020
Sober October in 2020 should perhaps be renamed Sober-ish October. At Shrub HQ we feel this is not the year to be overly strict on yourself; at the same time, if you've been in the "it's Friday night every night of the week" groove, it could probably do with being tempered somewhat.
Brandy Week - 24 to 30 September 2020
Brandy, an oft overlooked spirit, which we think a shame. Often stunning on its own, it is more than adept at being the heart and soul of a great cocktail. The Sidecar - need we say more?
National Rum Punch Day - 20 September 2020
We love Rum Punch Day. They can come in many shapes and sizes; the key is getting the balance right. A blend of 2 of our shrubs with 3 different rums hits all the right notes. Transport yourself to a Caribbean idyll.
NATIONAL NEGRONI WEEK 14 - 20 SEPTEMBER 2020
Who doesn't love a good Negroni, and here comes an opportunity for a whole week of them.
