Theme drinks

When organizing a drink, you naturally want it to be an unforgettable and enjoyable event. A fun way to achieve this is by organizing a Theme Drink. By choosing a specific theme and reflecting this in the snacks, drinks and decoration, you give your drinks party a personal and surprising twist.

It all starts with choosing a theme for your drinks. This choice determines the atmosphere and character of the event. For a Mexican evening, for example, you can think of colorful decorations, mariachi music and of course spicy dishes and cocktails.

Step 2: Matching Snacks and Drinks

A crucial part of a Theme Drink is the snacks and drinks you serve. For a Mexican drink you can think of delicious nachos with melted cheese, guacamole and salsa dips, tacos with minced meat and fresh vegetables, and of course margaritas as a refreshing drink.

Examples of Products:

  • Taco Kit: Old El Paso Taco Set
  • Margarita Mix: Jose Cuervo Margarita Mix

Step 3: Decoration and Atmosphere

To complete the Mexican atmosphere, it is important to also pay attention to the decoration. Think of hanging Mexican flags, placing cacti as table decorations and playing traditional Mexican music in the background.

Step 4: Entertainment

An extra fun addition to your Theme Drink can be to organize an activity that fits the chosen theme. For example, you could hang up a piñata that your guests can break for fun surprises or arrange a salsa dance workshop.

In short, organizing a Theme Drink is a great way to surprise your guests and offer a unique experience. By paying attention to the chosen theme in all aspects of the drinks, you create an unforgettable evening full of fun and tasteful moments. Give it a try and let your creativity run wild!
