Tonight’s event was held in Glasgow Merchant City’s new restaurant Mharsanta, which I have now added to my list to visit and try the food.
I love finding new drinks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic…
Over the past few years, I have dipped my taste buds in Rum, Wine and Gin and this year its Craft Beers. When I got the invite to this event, it sounded interesting and I added it to my calendar.
The event tonight was to introduce us to a new drink hitting the market, a cocktail making section, tastings and music…this sounded like a fun event and I couldn’t wait to go.
The drink is called “Slange Var” and its a fresh, zesty and alcohol-free. Tonight I got to try this drink as a mixer in several styles of cocktails and on its own.
The room the event was in was decorated very nice, and it really complimented what tonight was about.
I got speaking to the founder of Slange Var her name was Sarah, she was a lovely lady and she told me that Slange Var is intended to be a sipping drink, rather than one you would finish very fast.
Sarah came up with the idea of an alternative to a soft drink / sugary drink that you could have when you go out for the night. Sarah noticed that everyone who had an alcoholic drink would be sipping, but the people who had non-alcoholic drinks were finishing fast.
I got speaking to a few people since the event of different ages, who don’t drink alcohol and they also said this is one of their issues when they go out as they are always finished first.
During the event, I got up and took a little cocktail lesson, where I mixed a cocktail with Slange Var. I choose a raspberry one as I have a sweet tooth, and as you can see from the photo below I took it very seriously but really enjoyed making it and drinking it.
Slange Var on it’s on is a nice refreshing drink and would be perfect for a nice summer cooling down drink. Slange Var used as a mixer, with tonight’s cocktails were very good!! there was a cocktail that had whisky and one with red wine (This was my fave).
Firstly a big thanks for my invite to tonight’s event, and it was lovely meeting everyone from Slange Var and all the bloggers I connected with.
Tonight’s event was a very good one for me, I got to chat with many different people and connected with a few other bloggers which is always lovely to do.
I learned of a new drink and liked its taste, which was good. For me, it was better as a mixer for a cocktail, but I have a very sweet tooth. On its own, I would probably have it with ice, and on a nice sunny day to cool down.
I look forward to trying this drink again soon.
