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.
