A Contradictory Life

Book club: Booze > Books [[Also, first giveaway! ]]


My book club only reads wine labels. - Unknown

Saturday was our last book club of the year and of course it was Christmas themed which meant it involved the best of the season: champagne, crackers, secret Santa gifts and, thanks to @Original_Iced, some cocktails!

Last week a parcel from @Original_Iced arrived at work much to the joy and then the dismay of (when they figured out we couldn’t indulge straight away) my colleagues. Included was a “Party Pack” of 6 x 300 ml cocktail pouches to sample and 2 x 2 litre boxes to giveaway.

My favourite drink is definitely a cocktail and I just love ready made ones – it is far too much of a hassle to always have all the ingredients for a cocktail on hand at home and it is far easier to transport to braais and parties this way 🙂 I could definitely taste that these were made with real fruit juice and all the girls loved them! For more info on the cocktails read here. The Mojito and the Strawberry Daquiri were my favourite.


If you live in Johannesburg or Pretoria fill in the form below to win not one but two boxes of cocktails courtesy of @Original_Iced!

 (The giveaway ends at midnight on Thursday night)

Does anything scream summer more than an ice cold cocktail served over crushed ice?
