MORE THAN A MASH UP….
George’s of the Market and OhhSocial raise a glass with new Curated Cocktail Menu and offer-packed 2017 app
The humble potato is set to play a starring role, with the launch of George’s of the Market’s tantalisingly tasty, tuber-tastic Curated Cocktail Menu.
Launched at an exclusive event at George’s, which overlooks St George’s Market, and hosted in partnership with RubyBlue Premium Vodka and OhhSocial, the Curated Cocktail Menu will give classic, contemporary drinks a quirky twist.
Already renowned for their focus on celebrating homegrown ingredients direct from the historic market below them, George’s has chosen to keep it local by working with Lisburn-based Hughes Craft Distillery.
And while it wasn’t mashed, chipped or baked potatoes on the cocktail menu, guests were treated to a diverse and delightful menu dreamt up by the team who created Ireland’s First Potato Distilled Vodka and the expert bar staff at George’s.
The event also marked the launch of OhhSocial’s packed roster of partner offers for 2017, with the founders of the innovative app toasting 50 partners and more than 150 offers across four categories: Wine & Dine, Health & Beauty, Leisure & Activities and Kids Activities.
Patrick Davidson, Manager, George’s of the Market said, “What better way to celebrate making it through January than with top of the range cocktails using locally-sourced ingredients that showcase how vibrant and innovative the local drinks industry is.
“George’s of the Market prides itself on offering contemporary Northern Irish food and drink with a twist, indeed our cooked breakfast has been voted the best in Northern Ireland. The quality of the Curated Cocktail menu is no different, and we see it as the perfect way to kick off the New Year.”
Featuring cocktails made from RubyBlue Premium Potato Vodka, as well as berry liqueurs in several cocktails including The White Ruby; George’s Mary – a Northern Irish Bloody Mary and the Belfast Martini – a French Martini with a twist, these cocktails are sure to go down a treat.
Ursula Murphy, Director OhhSocial said: “And what’s more, from January to March 2017, OhhSocial members can indulge responsibly as Curated cocktails will be 2-4-1 on our smart phone app, which gives you even more reasons to shake off the winter blues.”
OhhSocial was launched in late 2016 with a mission to revolutionise the way Northern Ireland socialises. The smart phone app offers more than 150 exclusive buy-one-get-one-free offers from leading partners across Northern Ireland and a 2017 annual subscription is now available for just £14.99.
RubyBlue was established by Hughes Craft Distillery in 2010 and is the first craft spirits producer in the North of Ireland. Their spirits embody premium quality, traditionally crafted to create a flavour experience that locks the purity of nature into unique infusions and exceptionally smooth Vodka.
