Something New: Mainstay…….On The Beach

I know one or two people who love Mainstay.  This one is for you.  Here’s a cool alternative to making your own cocktails……

Mainstay, the award winning vodka, introduced the fist boxed cocktails in Mzansi in October 2010 and has been leading the ready to drink cocktail market ever since.  The range includes the popular Strawberry Daiquiri, Pina Colada and Mojito.  Now, an old favourite, “Sex on the Beach” I meant” ….On the beach” has been added to the range.   Mmmhhh!  This new cocktail is made from Mainstay Premium Original combined with real orange, peach and cranberry pulp and it tastes good.  Hey, don’t take my word for it.

The cocktails are available in 1 (R40) and 3 litre (R105) packs and can be purchased from leading liquor retailers nationwide.  I don’t know about you but when I throw a party I always make up my own cocktails and shooters.  However, when organising a party you tend to be too busy and run out of time to do everything.  These come in handy, the coolest part is that you can store them in the freeze before and after opening to get that slushy consistency characteristic of a cocktail.  All you need to do is just to get those teeny weeny umbrellas to doll up your cocktails.

Cheers to the freakin weekend!
