Bar Schweppes – Lost In London

“Easy to make cocktails at home with the new limited edition mixers from Schweppes. Also, a secret bar to hit Melbourne!”

 

To celebrate the launch of Schweppes’ two new limited edition mixers, the people of Melbourne can look forward to a secret London themed bar located somewhere in the Melbourne CBD (address to be listed here once I can locate it!). The much anticipated Bar Schweppes will run from 23rd October – 7th November 2015. Bar Schweppes will also feature in the Birdcage at this years Melbourne Cup Carnival at Flemington.

Schweppes, the inventor or carbonated beverages over 230 years ago, have been busy inventing two limited edition mixers. They are: Schweppes Lemonade with Citrus & Cucumber and Schweppes Orange, Grapefruit & Bitters. They have been in development for two years, and are inspired by international bar trends. These two flavours have an distinct London feel, incorporating grapefruit, cucumber and bitters. It’s easy to see why Schweppes is Australia’s favourite range of mixers.

“The intrinsic link between these two new mixers and their London heritage lends itself perfectly to an entirely new campaign we’ve called ‘Lost in London’.” Matt Burr, Schweppes Senior Brand Manager. “Lost in London is the first in a series about iconic global bar scenes. The products are designed to evoke a sense of taking a wrong turn and becoming lost in a city that you may have never been to before, finding a bar you never expected to be in and discovering a drink, a cocktail, a smell and a taste that you will never forget and want to replicate every chance you get,”.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve never been to London before. It’s on the bucket list, but for now, I’ll just head down to Bar Schweppes and experience London there first! You’ll be able to enjoy two new bespoke cocktails incorporating the new mixers:
