There’s always the moral debate to consider whenever, as a blogger, you receive an email offering you a freebie of whatever kind. Now, wrangle with my conscience as I did, there was something about this latest offer that swung me: free vodka (and stuff to mix with it).
You’ll also have to forgive the photograph snapped with my mobile phone (as soon as I saw all the vodka cocktail related goodies that had arrived while I was out), as my hands were shaking too much with anticipation to get out my “real” camera.
The premise goes something like this: Smirnoff are vodka experts and are making the most of social networking’s popularity by having a Smirnoff Black cocktail mixing session tomorrow at 7pm (24/06/2010) on Twitter (http://twitter.com/sblackpopupbar).
Put simply, a “mixologist” will share various tweets explaining how to make some hopefully delicious cocktails, and we’ll all sit at home making a mess of it while getting merrily drunk. I’m certainly up for it, and if the contents of the free hamper I received (pictured) are anything to go by, we’re in for a treat.
And if this all seems a little bit too much like advertising for you, lighten up. Fancy a drink?
