Cocktail Mail

Agency: Y&R


It’s time to hit the road – as part of the new Schweppes mixing campaign - and spread the word of the Cocktail Revolution.

 Schweppes Cocktail Mail is a cocktail chain letter created for Schweppes by George Patterson Y&R, Traffik. Schweppes are taking the message of the Cocktail Revolution to the people in their homes on the back of pimped out motorbikes with inbuilt sidecar bars. It's part promotion - part social experiment, but with drinks.
The drivers and their able mixing experts begin by visiting the home of one lucky person where upon they will be mixed a cocktail of their choice, are educated in the ways of the Cocktail Revolution, and receive enough supplies to keep the party going. They will then choose the next person – a friend, family member, famous crush, former childhood enemy – to send the Cocktail Mail onto, resulting in a chain-mail-style endless cocktail. Video content and photos of each stop are uploaded and tagged at as Cocktail Mail travels far and wide.

Ben Goss, Marketing Manager at Schweppes Australia says, "The challenge was to get into people’s homes and teach them how to mix themselves a simple cocktail. Not an easy task by any means, unless of course you have a fleet of motorbikes with bars attached to the side."
