2020 has been a tough year for us all, and because of this every occasion needs to be celebrated! What better way to celebrate than with awesome people, stunning gifts and your favourite alcohol? And since, there is a drink for every occasion, we at NetFlorist have taken the opportunity to be your bartender and create an alcohol guide.
Everyone has their favourites when it comes to alcoholic beverages, even though there are so many delicious alcohol types to choose from. While you indulge in your ‘go-to’, there are countless other alcohol flavours to delight your palate with, leaving you feeling just as ‘hoppy’. The trick with trying out different types of alcohol, is knowing when and how to pair the alcohol with the occasion.
Wine: This beverage tends to be underestimated. It is ideal for dinner parties, brunch with the girls, and pairs exquisitely with lavish meals. But don’t be fooled, this beverage also packs a punch. NetFlorist boasts a wide range of wines, from white wine to red wine, sparkling wine and everything in between, for you to find the flavour that you love. Browse through fabulous personalised wines, and even something special like personalised wine glasses that are sure to impress your guests. ‘Wine’ not spoil yourself with a gift that will have you coming back for more!
Beer: In South Africa, beer is the unofficial national drink for sports. It could be soccer, rugby, or even cricket, best believe that beer rivers are bound to be overflowing. Beer is a staple for South Africans, so ‘hop’ onto the beer train to explore not just your favourite beers, but also delicious craft beers, beer crates and even personalised beer mugs that will leave you the envy of the half-time crowd.
Vodka & Tequila: Vodka is surely not for the faint of heart. Even though Corona has caused a damper on the party scene this is the drink for the party-people and club-goers, when friends get-together for musical festival pre-drinks, or shots before you head out for a night on the town. Did someone say shots? Throw in the salt and lemon and it’s a whole vibe with a bottle of your favourite tequila. These beverages of choice will still get you in the mood to take on the world, or maybe just your backyard!
Gin: As we begin to enjoy warmer days and livelier nights, gin will surely be the go-to for most pool parties, braais and get-togethers, socially distanced of course. This refreshing, and flavourful beverage pairs well with just about any tonic, soda water and even certain types of juices and teas. Be-‘gin’ the festivities with a G&T cocktail in your personalised gin glasses and leave your friends envious as you sip on your favourite cocktail pool-side.
Whisky: Ah whisky, the drink for the old-soul. This beverage is best enjoyed on a warm, summer’s evening, after a good meal, enjoying the company of close friends and family. With December rolling in hot and fast, you will surely experience more and more nights like these. Whether you’re a single malt or blended whisky kind of person, display your personalised whisky crate in your home bar to create a sense of nostalgia whenever you pour a glass. With your personalised whisky glass, toast to the memories that will remain on your mind for years to come with the people who will live in your heart forever.
