Cheers: watermelon and mint spritz by All Shook Up

The concept of time, during this lockdown, faded away. Days looked alike. With no early wake-up time to commute to work, came less tiredness. Lie-ins at weekends felt less festive. Even Netflix binge watching lost value. A quote, seen on Instagram, summed it well: only remained coffee and wine time! Being French, though, wine, to me, is a serious affair and better enjoyed shared with friends. Cocktails, however… While my favorite tipple is a well balanced Americano, a touch of colour and sparkle, especially one I could bring along on a forest walk and enjoy with a view, really felt like a little holiday. Meet my new friend: All Shook Up.

Their funky design caught my eye: neon and pastel hues, patterns you feel like collecting. Cool names too: Llamartini, Flamingo Colada, Violet Cosmo. They should come with a little paper umbrella – they call for it! There are spritzes too, quite aromatic and exotic. and I have developed quite a fondness for the watermelon and mint one. Well balanced, the right touch of sweetness and yes, juicy, aromatic.

And oh, the bubbles sparkle as beautifully as a summer tune, make you want to sing and dance. And while All Shook Up cannot equal a cocktail served in a trendy bar, for now, for an impromptu picnic, for the joy of social distanced walks and BBQs – they are just perfect. Vibrant, happy, tasty. As if you had just thrown a handful of confetti in the air…
