5 Digital Marketing-Inspired Cocktails

Working at a digital agency allows you to collaborate with like-minded creatives, develop killer marketing strategies, and of course, take part in weekly happy hours. At Hudson, we believe happy hour fuels creativity, and a little extra fun motivates us to get sh*t done. Therefore, we’ve created a list of our 5 favorite marketing-infused cocktails for you to share with your team.

The Tipsy Tweet

A stellar Twitter account is crucial for audience engagement and quick customer service. Inspired by the sweet and snarky comments from some of our favorite brands, we came up with the ‘Tipsy Tweet.’


You’ll Need:

  • 1 ½ shots of vodka
  • 1 cup of lemonade
  • ½ cup of cranberry juice
  • Raspberries
  • Sugar & salt (combine both for the rim)

The #NoFilter

We all have that one coworker who says just about anything on his/her mind. This hashtag-inspired cocktail is prompted by those who never fail to let us know how they really feel. We call this yummy drink the ‘#NoFilter.’

 


You’ll Need:

  • ½ shot of hard apple cider
  • 1 shot of whiskey
  • ¼ shot of gin
  • Cinnamon (for the top)
  • Apple slices
  • Brown sugar/cinnamon

The InstaBuzzed

This Instagram-influenced drink stirs the glass in the marketing world. Brought on by those days in the office spent scrolling through dozens of stunning visuals that excite us to create everyday, the ‘InstaBuzzed’ makes for the perfect mid-afternoon cocktail.


You’ll Need:

  • 1 shot of irish cream
  • ½ shot of coffee liqueur
  • 1 cup of iced coffee (unsweetened)
  • Crushed graham crackers (for the rim)
  • 1 large scoop of coffee ice cream
  • Chocolate covered pretzel sticks (for dipping)

The SnapHappy

Snapchat holds a special place in the Millennial heart. You may be all too familiar with the ‘snap everything’ intern who jets around the office taking pictures and videos all day. When the semester finally finishes, kick back and relax with the ‘SnapHappy.’


You’ll Need:

  • 1 ½ shots of coconut rum
  • 1 ½ cups of pineapple juice
  • Coconut (for the rim)
  • Pineapple slices

The Happy Hudson

Aside from skilled marketing strategy and premium web design, the employees at Hudson love a good chocolate treat. The ‘Happy Hudson’ was born out of our love for elegant design...and chocolate!


You’ll Need:

  • 1 shot of espresso vodka
  • ½ a shot of chocolate vodka
  • Chocolate sticks
  • Salt (for the rim)
  • Whipped cream (for on top)

We encourage drinking in moderation, but a drink or two can help get those creative juices flowing! We would love to know your favorite cocktails to try at our next company happy hour, so please leave us a comment about what we should try next. Cheers to creative marketing!
