he shakers are polished, strainers poised and Signature Sips recipes ready to go... World Cocktail Day is one of the biggest days of the year at Sneakers & Jeans – and for hospo staff around the world.  

“World Cocktail Day offers us a meaningful opportunity to celebrate cocktails globally and represents a day of importance to bartenders around the world” said S&J Group Bars Manager, Keegan Hartslief – who joined the S&J group earlier this year following a two-year stint as Seedlip’s National Spirits Ambassador.

“In previous years we’ve created iconic cocktails with an S&J twist – last year as Perth was midway through lockdown 1.0, we shared the secrets behind our most favourite and popular cocktails across the S&J venue portfolio for people to recreate at home. This year, we wanted to do something a little different – and we know people are going to love it!”

This World Cocktail Day, S&J are pumped to launch ‘S&J Signature Sips’ – an extra-special cocktail list showcased across every S&J venue, celebrating each venues’ respective signature cocktails. 

“It’s an exciting idea that the team have come up with” say’s S&J CEO, Andy Freeman. “Not only is this activation uniting S&J’s incredible bartending talent – who all train together under Keegan’s training program – it’s a killer activation which really unites our eclectic portfolio of venues.

“It’s offered our bartending talent a glimpse into each respective venue and in turn resulted in a real appreciation of one another’s skills, craft and talent. Collaboration is a huge part of our S&J culture – so it makes sense to encourage collabs within S&J too… I’m thinking it might even get a little competitive!”

The best bit? It’s here to stay!
