Today’s challenge requires a spark of imagination, a sprinkle of creativity and a whole lot of fun. Set by intergenerational arts charity Magic Me, it is inspired by their Cocktails in Care Homes project. With a mission to bring people together through the arts – Magic Me throws cocktail parties in care homes across London on a monthly basis – staffed by volunteers who decorate the venue (usually on a theme) and serve up drinks, fun and conversation. Residents, staff, family and friends all get to enjoy the ‘pub’ atmosphere and make new connections and friends. With this in mind Magic Me’s generation game is…
Make personalised mocktails (or cocktails if you’ve got That Friday Feeling!) for each other or yourself. Have a chat about what your interests are. What are your favourite flavours, ingredients and drinks? If you were a flavour what would it be? Now come up with a mocktail/cocktail name based on this – maybe they can have puns in them, be funny, describe a place or person, or the ingredients, for example: ‘London Fog’, ‘Moscow Mule’, ‘Snowball’.
If you have a bit more time…
Theme the table you are serving your mocktail on to match. Magic Me use tablecloths, props, and decorations (bunting, flowers, etc). Take a look at Magic Me’s Twitter and Facebook pages to see the kind of themes they have fun with.
Did you have fun making your mocktails? What flavours did you associate with which personalities? Did you throw a good party?
Share a picture of your mocktails along with their names! Share with Magic Me on Twitter and Facebook and with us on here and/or on your social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
