Something Different For Liquor Promotions

We had a challenge. Come up with a new, creative idea for a liquor or night club promotion:
A 30 minute hosted bar with some girls handing out flashing neckalces is great for a sports bar but can be a bit out of character if your trying to promote an upscale vodka label. So to find an appropriate creative liquor promotion idea, we have some problems to solve. In fact we had to abide by these parameters:
  • It can’t be tacky
  • It has to be FUN
  • It MUST leave an impression
  • It has to be easy to implement anywhere
Let’s face it. cotton candy is HOT!!
If you don’t believe it, visit one of LA’s Hot Spot Restaurants and you can see for yourself. Not only does it look cool, but when one martini glass filled with fluffy pink clouds comes out of the dining room, another 10 customers order them immediately. It leaves an impression that people don’t forget. Cotton Candy Girls addresses all of these issues.
1.) It can’t be tacky.
How about a small plume of lemon cotton candy atop a bamboo skewer alongside a lemon drop martini. It can either be eaten on it’s own or dunked into the drink where it immediately dissolves and becomes part of the mix. We offer many different ideas and presentation that we can tailor to your setup.
2.) It has to be fun!
Cotton candy is always fun. It brings people right back to being a kid again. Just holding a big cone of blue rasberry is enough to bring a smile to anyone.
3.) It has to leave an impression.
If patrons don’t remember your brand, then what’s the point? The sight of cotton candy being made live is already a blast to the senses. Mix in a bit of flare and some of our hot baristas and you have an cotton candy experience, not just another necklace or flashing button. Out of the box and different are going to increase your brand’s value and make sure people don’t forget.
4.) It has to be easy to implement anywhere.
As long as there’s a 18″ of table space and an electrical outlet, cotton candy can be made. We can send our baristas or work with your existing staff and supply the ingredients & equipment.

Pure White Cotton Candy, It’s Here!

They look like actual clouds! Or cotton depending on who you ask. Either way. . pure white cotton candy is pretty badass. Then again, the idea of 325 degree molten sugar hurling through the air at 100’s of miles an hour only to re solidify into a fluffy tangle of delight is always amazing.
I think the appeal of pure white cotton candy lies in its simplicity! Though there’s a lot more that goes into it than you’d think. White cotton candy, on its own, lacks flavor, except the slight carmelization that naturally occurs with the heating of sugar. A flavoring has to be added without affecting the color as pure white is easily ruined by residual color from other ingredients. In fact, to make pure white cotton candy, at least 2 pounds of sugar has to be run through the machine just to purge any coloring that may be left over. The smallest amount of residual color will ruin a whole batch.
