beyond Archipelago

Mix & Muddle received another brief from their friends at Easol
Setting up and operating
a fully functional cocktail bar

in the middle of the Swedish Archipelago islands.

Beyond Archipelago is a DIY adventure festival
consisting of 3 days of music, kayaking, yoga, and bespoke cocktails...of course.


Life's too short for ordinary holidays.

After the success of Beyond Sahara,
we were asked to carry out a similar vision on a remote Swedish island

in the middle of the 24,000 strong archipelago.

After an unguided 6 hour kayaking adventure from the mainland,

guests were greeted with pine infused Daiquiris, berry filled alcho-smoothies,

and the infamous and deadly Scandi Shot.

Pining for the Island

40ml Pine infused Plantation 3 Stars Rum
10ml Carlshamms Swedish Punsch
5ml Amaro Montenegro

25ml Lemon Juice

10ml Raspberry Syrup


Served in a biodegradable wine tumbler

Garnished with grated Nutmeg

The set up was cruel, but stunning.
We landed at the island on a Dunkirk style landing craft,

then comandeered a small and rustic shack as our 'pub'.

Equiped with a gas fridge, stove, and upturned beds as our bar,

'The Frog Shack' was born.
