With their doors shut for over a year now, Electric Bar and Restaurant, in the heart of Cork City, are raising money via a crowdfunding campaign to deliver delicious cocktails to you at home, until they can safely welcome you through their doors again.
The bar have a superb team of expert mixologists, Carl D’Alton and Traford Murphy, coming up with tantalising twists and innovations in the bar’s cocktail space. The cocktails range from their own “Pornstar Punch” – an original take on the modern classic Pornstar Martini; right through to “Peanut Butter Jelly” – a PBJ Old Fashioned, which is something very different.
Having launched the crowd-fundraising campaign this week, owner of Electric, Ernest Cantillon, says:
“After a bout of shameful self-pity, we’ve moved on the acceptance stage about reopening – it’s probable we will not be open for most if not all of this summer. While disappointing, and financially terrifying, we understand and accept why.
The idea behind ‘Electric Cocktails’ was mostly born to keep our sanity. Our bar has been closed for over a year now, and it’s been tough to keep motivated and to keep match fit.
We’ve been working hard on this cocktail range and would love your support to launch it. We were blown away by your support for our Christmas Cocktail Selection boxes, and now want to take it up for a level for our Summer offering. A little piece of the Electric experience to take home!” [ Video: https://youtu.be/CBZ-jQ7k_v0 ]
How it works:
Electric Cocktails can be shipped anywhere in Ireland and the UK. The bundles range from €25 – €100 with a scrumptious selection of cocktails to choose from, and restaurant vouchers available too.
By purchasing a cocktail from Electric’s crowdfunding efforts, you’ll help keep Electric in operation and ensure they’ll still be there when it’s safe to re-open again.
