Why Silver Bullet?

Silver Bullet is a cocktail from the 1920s, which includes gin, lemon juice and kummel. With kummel as an ingredient, it’s not a drink for everyone, and neither, I suppose, is this newsletter.
We’ve hijacked the name because ‘Silver’ will represent the scarcity and preciousness of the content, and ‘Bullet’ because it will be focused and deadly to our enemies (purveyors of the mediocre)!
Let’s get stuck into the first edition of Silver Bullet.
Cocktail of the Month
Bit of Me

Icely Done Rhubarb & Strawberry – 50ml
Hendrick’s gin – 50ml
Soda – 25ml

Method: Build and churn with fresh crushed ice
Glass: Highball

This is a drink created with the awesome Be At One Bars using our Rhubarb & Strawberry blend and it is flying out of the bars which is handy because its super quick and straightforward to prepare. 
A great boost for a blend that we’re really proud of.

Our "Thirst for the Remarkable"
News from Our Kitchen

We’ve added a vacuum packer and water bath (sous-vide) to our growing list of kitchen kit and they are largely used to help Be At One with their delicious and inventive Toast & Butter Daiquiri. It’s a tricky process involving butter washed Bacardi and handmade toast syrup that has now been perfected to the nth degree. I’ll blog about the process very soon.

Being cocktail folk with our own kitchen, we are well equipped to help create and roll out inventive cocktails - great where speed, consistency and inventiveness are the order of the day.

Piña Colada
Although unorthodox, I’ve been really enjoying the creamy and mildly grainy texture that banana puree lends to a Piña Colada. It should only be used in small doses but it might make for an interesting evolution of our frozen Piña Coladas this year.

Strawberry Daiquiri
Our strawberry blend for our slushie machines is our best-selling flavour by a mile. That said, there is no room for complacency and we’ve been experimenting with this blend to make sure it is nothing short of remarkable this summer.
We are delighted to announce a NEW blend to our product range, Rhubarb & Strawberry. In our delicious pale pink blend, elegant rhubarb juice is sweetened to create a flavourful rhubarb syrup which is then balanced with the addition of lemon juice, before strawberry is added to bring juicy red fruitiness to the final product.

If you would like a sample, please contact in our sales team.

Movers & Shakers
Louise Latchford has joined us to create and head up our marketing department. It’s the first time we’ve recruited in this area and we’re excited to add some meat to the bones in this part of our business.

Stephanie Christodoulou (my little sister) has also joined us to provide some backbone support to the company and to try and create some order amongst the chaos that is summertime orders and the movement of our frozen drinks machines for nationwide events and festivals.

What else is going on......
To celebrate the beginning of our fifth year, we’ve indulged in a bit of a re-brand. Take a peek at our new and improved look and let us know what you think.

And me personally…

What I am reading

Meditations by Marcus Aurelius. This was the private journal of the revered Roman emperor, written in Greek.  The second book in as many months on Stoic philosophy which is having a pretty significant affect on my own life philosophy.

A quote from the book that I love:

 “Every hour of the day, give vigorous attention to the performance of the task in hand with precise analysis, with unaffected dignity, with human sympathy, dispassionate justice – and to vacating your mind from all its other thoughts.”
