The Boxing Day charity event was a big success!
We sponsored an event hosted at The Spare Room (in the Roosevelt Hotel) on Hollywood Boulevard in L. A., which supported The Hospitality Kitchen, a charity that helps California’s homeless.
It was an exciting evening! Guests were treated to an electrifying punch on offer from THE WILD GEESE® Irish Soldiers & Heroes created by the event’s hostess and Spare Room Beverage Director, Naomi Schimek.
Boxing Day Punch – Created by Naomi Schimek
2 oz The Wild Geese® Irish Soldiers and Heroes Classic Blend
1 oz Barry’s Irish tea (double strength)
75 oz Honey syrup
5 oz fresh lemon juice
25 oz fresh orange juice
Mix ingredients together with ice. Add a dash of angostura bitters and a dash of cardamom tincture to taste. Shake and strain over ice. Garnish with micro-planed nutmeg.
With the frivolity in full swing, our new brand ambassador Silamith Weir was on hand to serve the punch and showcase our Collection to the bar and cocktail community, who joined in the fun. Many influential mixologists really loved the brand, with the Single Malt emerging as the prominent favourite.
There was a drive to collect blankets and clothes, and about $2000 was raised to help keep the homeless community warm this winter. We’re really proud to have been a part of the event. Thanks you to all who turned up and we hope you enjoyed yourself!
*Outside North America The Wild Geese® Irish Soldiers & Heroes is sold under the brand name ‘The Wild Geese® Irish Whiskey’.
