Although my holidays for the year are pretty much done and dusted – minus the one I’m currently on! (Travel PR’s please get in touch) I will always be a travel, lifestyle, food and drink enthusiast and can appreciate almost all of the products and events that fall within these brackets! So when I hear of a brand i.e food/ drink that collaborates with another brand/ store/ product etc I immediately get excited and literally get typing on the blog.
It doesn’t happen very often, let me add, but recently I received quite a random and in-descriptive email from the people that look after Southern Comfort’s PR and thought it may have just been a mistake. That was until a huge, I mean humongous! box arrived at my house which I wasn’t totally sure of. What was inside however was a real surprise!
Due to the brand’s first ever travel retail exclusive product, Southern Comfort Blood Orange launching I was in for the most fun and relaxing weekend of drinking this delicious new drink alongside lounging on the brand’s mini deck chair which I love and was getting stopped for all day! All I wanted to do after drinking some of it and stylishly enjoying the chair over an East London park, was to get it home and to try conjuring up some of the recipes I had been kindly sent by Southern Comfort. I also found a few of my own too.
Here’s also another little fun fact I found out; Southern Comfort is NOT a Whiskey or a Bourbon. It is in fact a Liqueur…I didn’t know that. Did you?
Should you or someone you know love Southern Comfort, this is a great opportunity to try something new and of limited edition. This Global Travel Retail is available to collect from all World Duty Free Outlets around the world! All you need to do now is book that vacation!
