Schweppes has also partnered up with Vice to create a four-part video series called The Knapsack Bartender that follows Jordan Redaelli’s travels around the world in pursuit of unusual alcoholic beverages and home brews to integrate into a Schweppes cocktail.
"Schweppes is leading the revolution to change the way consumers think about cocktails and make them more commonplace in the everyday," Schweppes senior brand manager, Ben Goss, said.
"The Schweppes Cocktail Revolution aims to empower consumers with the knowledge and inspiration to engage in cocktail making and take away the intimidation commonly associated with mixed drinks."
