5 Key Reasons Drink Brands Are Sponsoring Christmas Concerts

At_The Club_With_Remy | www.drinks.ng

Christmas is Nigeria’s ‘unofficial’ party season and major drink brands in the country are part of the reason behind that.

After all, what party is complete without a drink or two?

A look at the event calendar for December shows that major drink brands have partnered with event planners and big artists for some of the amazing concerts.

From Hennessy Artistry Grande Finale to Pepsi’s ‘Disemba’ line of events, there is always a major brand associated with a big concert.

So why do these drink brands sponsor these concerts?

  1. Sales

For the drink brands, the competition is always on who can make more sales. Drink brands like Hennessy, Johnnie Walker, Remy Martin and the rest leverage on these Christmas concerts as an avenue to sell off their products. It is normal to find vendors with stalls at these concerts selling drinks.

  1. Brand Visibility

From the posters, banners, radio, TV and outdoor advertorials that precede these concerts, more consumers begin to see and hear about the brands sponsoring these concerts. Christmas concerts have become like an advertorial showcase for these brands and it is interesting to see more and more brands jump on the roller coaster although there seems to be a bit of ‘copy-catting’ in this aspect.

  1. Brand Identity

Concerts create a unique identity for the drink brands. While Hennessy Artistry uses the avenue of music as a testimony to its unique blending style; At the Club with Remy Martin reveals the brand’s identity as enchanting cognac to enjoy in clubs and parties.

To each drink brand, its own identity and all are targeted to tuning in with the consumer base that tandems with its identity.

  1. Ambassadorial Deals

Some of the artists like Falz, Wizkid, Davido, Olamide, Timaya are celebrity ambassadors of most of these drink brands. It goes without saying that the brands will key into any concert organised by any of its ambassadors.

Smirnoff showed a good example when it partnered, alongside Pepsi for DJ Spinall’s Album party which held recently at the Oriental Hotel.

  1. Brand Experience

Music and drinks are wonderful companions when it comes to partying. There is a saying among social circles that “a glass or two helps you to understand the music better.” Drinks brands tag with these concerts to create the right experiential atmosphere for lovers and potential customers to interact with their products. For drink brands, Christmas concerts are like an open playground to build the fun side of their products on.

“Really Great Service! Called last minute on Friday evening about 6:30pm to pick up drinks I just bought. They close at 6pm or so but the representative on the phone (a kind lady) made sure we got our drinks even though we got there about 7:35pm (last minute rushing). They were very accommodating even offering a drink while the car was coming to pick up. Really great service! Thanks –Idowu”

5 Drinking Hacks You Should Know

Life hacks are those simply creative things we do to make living easy – drinking hacks make drinking way easier and bring life to your party.

Pulling off a hack when you and your friends meet up for a drinkathon can immediately give you the Black Panther title among them.

We have selected five(5) hacks that you can use to step up your drinking experience.

The Disposable Cooler

This hack involves using a waste bag inside a beer or soda case (not a crate) – you can also use a TV case or something of the like. Put some ice into it along with your drinks. Voila! You have yourself a disposable cooler.

Nails & Hammer

So you have a bottle of wine in front of you but there is to wine opener in sight? Two small nails and a hammer can do the job of lifting the cork for you. Simply use your thumb to drive the nails into the cork, then use the end of a hammerhead meant for removing nails to pull out the nail along with the cork.

The Ice Cooler

Some drinks release the best flavours when chilled. So what do you do when you have a drink to chill, but can’t wait 20-25 minutes on a freezer to do the work? Fill a bucket with ice and add just enough water to fill the cracks in that ice. Add salt to the mixture (this lowers the freezing point and let it become super-cold water). Go ahead and rotate your bottle or can of soda, beer, bottled water, or wine for about 2 minutes or more, and your cold drink is ready.

Champagne Bubbler

Is your open champagne or sparkling wine running out of fizz? Fear not! Simply add a raisin in your glass and wait a few minutes will save it from going flat.

Blended Wine

Wines taste best when you aerate the flavours. No wonder wine glasses are specially shaped to allow the flavours breath and direct them to the nose and palate. To get the best out of your wine (where there is no expensive wine aerator), pour your wine in a blender, blend it for 30 seconds, and settle to savour the best wine tasting experience yet.

Why Getting a Massage after Drinking is Bad for you

Alcohol and Massage | www.drinks.ng

Getting an oily body massage is as healthy as it is stress-relieving, but it is not advisable to hit the massage table the morning after drinking.

Massages leave you dehydrated, which is why the masseuse offers a glass of water after a session. Thus getting a massage when the alcohol in your body is already making you thirsty is not a safe bet.

So why is getting a massage after drinking alcohol bad?

According to Dennis Frymire, a therapist at Massage Envy in Chicago, “Massage moves fluids in the body.”

“If you are dehydrated, that is only going to heighten the feeling of dehydration after.”

This means that getting a massage after drinking will only intensify any symptom of being hungover that might surface.

“I will have someone come in, and they will say that they have been drinking the night before and that they are hung over,” he said.

“You may feel great during the massage, but it may heighten your feelings of being hung over after the massage,” Frymire said.

Especially steer clear of something like a deep-tissue massage.

“After you get a deep-tissue massage, there’s always a bit of muscle soreness,” he said. “That’s natural.”

However, if you were intoxicated the night before, the soreness will only feel worse.

So as much as a massage is worth having, do well not to fill your body with booze few hours before it. Just like massages, drinking should be an enjoyable activity. You do not want to walk away with an uncomfortable experience after.

Never forget that moderate drinking will help your body get the best benefits from the liquor you are drinking.

10 Basic Cocktail Tools Every Mixologist Should Have

Bar tools | www.drinks.ng

Mixing the perfect drink requires creativity, focus, expertise and consistency. It has become an art in its own right as more cocktails are invented regularly.

Just like every other art form, making cocktails requires certain tools to get the job done right and quickly too. For the beginner mixologist, having the proper tools is almost as important as getting the recipe right. As a matter of fact, the right tools propel the right recipe.

Basic Cocktail Tools

The basic tools needed to make that darling cocktail are explained below:

Boston Shaker

The Boston Shaker is highly essential in the cocktail-making process. It consists of two parts: a mixing glass and a metal tumbler. It used to have a third part which was a built-in strainer. The beautiful thing about the Boston Shaker is that the customer gets to see what goes into the mixing glass. Add that to the beauty of watching the ingredients mix together as the mixologist gets to work.

Strainer

The strainer is a basic sieve designed to be placed on the shaker. It keeps broken ice and fruit or other pulp in the metal tumbler while the drink is being poured.

Fine Strainer

In order to keep the cocktail clear, a fine strainer is used to catch all the smaller pieces of ice and fruit while pouring the drink.

Bar Knife

You definitely need the bar knife for cutting fruits and other garnishing.

Jigger

The Jigger is a measuring cup with measures on both ends. It is used in measuring the right amount of ingredient to add to the cocktail.

Bar Spoon

The Bar Spoon is used to stir, scoop spices, layer drinks and muddle soft fruit. It comes with a coin-like end that suits its purpose.

Blender

Blenders are primarily used for frozen drinks and are quite useful in making purees.

Muddler

It is used in mashing fruits into a puree, as well as extracting juice from various citrus fruits.

Pour Spout

This is a special cap placed on bottles for optimal speed at the bar. Mixologists and bartenders with years of experience use the Pour Spout to pour the correct quantity of drink without having to measure.

5 Iconic Bars in Film We’d Love To Have A Few Drinks & Chill At #ActHappyWeek

5 Iconic Bars in Film We'd Love To Have A Few Drinks & Chill At #ActHappyWeek | drinks.ng

Many of cinema’s best scenes have been set against a backdrop of bars and some of these bars have become spots we dream of visiting for a great time. If the bar was real, you have no doubt it’ll be your favourite one.

In the spirit of Act Happy Week, here are the top five fictional bars we wish we could visit to relive moments witnessed in film, or just get a couple of drinks and chill:

Rick’s Café Americain

5 Iconic Bars in Film We'd Love To Have A Few Drinks & Chill At #ActHappyWeek | drinks.ng

It could be impossible without the romance between Rick and IIsa or without the threat of Gestapo bursting in at any time, but since the classic Casablanca (1942) came out, many bars in the world have tried to recreate Cafe Americain’s aura. While they try, some of us would just like to be there with friends and lovers, having a glass of Champagne while we enjoy a live band.

Jack Rabbit Slim’s

5 Iconic Bars in Film We'd Love To Have A Few Drinks & Chill At #ActHappyWeek | drinks.ng

The most memorable bit in Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction (1994) is probably the entire scene at this dancing diner. Jack Rabbit Slim’s is so loved that it gained honourary dive-bar status and inspires whole warehouses of fancy-dress costumes. We don’t know about you, but we’d definitely love to get a $5 milkshake in there surrounded by people mimicking suave caricatures of the most popular celebrities on the planet.

The Prancing Pony

5 Iconic Bars in Film We'd Love To Have A Few Drinks & Chill At #ActHappyWeek | drinks.ng

In the first installment of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, our hobbits from The Shire found themselves hiding out at The Prancing Pony and drew too much attention to their wasted, loud selves, forcing the husky hand of Aragorn who came to their rescue on that rainy day. The action-packed scene is enough to inspire the desire to sit at this bar and have a few pints of ale.

The Gold Room at the Overlook Hotel

5 Iconic Bars in Film We'd Love To Have A Few Drinks & Chill At #ActHappyWeek | drinks.ng

In cult classic The Shining (1980), this bar features briefly, but sticks. The Gold Room doesn’t charge for drinks! Not a lot is better than that today! Plus, it has an excellent bartender in Lloyd who we’d love to get chummy with, much like Nicholson’s character Jack Torrance did in the film. A glass of Jack Daniel’s, anyone?

Basement Taverna

A shot of Schnapps at Basement Taverna is all we ask. This bar hosted a seminal point in Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds and though this scene ended abysmally, we’d all love to play a version of the drinking game where we stick a name on a card to our forehead and try to guess who is written on it at a bar in a basement.
