January 2022 - What's in the Box?

The “Something Blue” cocktail is actually a Tipsy Panda Original. James Harris, The Founder of Tipsy Panda, was still working at a bar in London when a bride-to-be walked in with her bachelorettes and jokingly asked for “Something Blue”. Without hesitation, James started to concoct something new and blue! What started as a strange request, turned into a lovely treat.

The “Something Blue” cocktail is a gin based drink, with fresh peach and citrus flavours. It finishes with a fresh taste, beautiful aroma and a  gorgeous blue aesthetic.

This year, we want to turn January Blues into a positive and fun experience. With Tipsy Panda, you can join the club and get the ingredients to learn this amazing cocktail from the comfort of your own home. You can stay safe and still enjoy yourself!
