Get Your Drink On – In A Big Way

Monkey Shoulder, the blended malt Scotch whisky, is bringing the fun back to serious cocktails in a big way, with the introduction of The Monkey Mixer
The giant travelling cocktail mixer made its debut during Arizona Cocktail Week last February and has made stops all around the country inspiring liquor fans to “Play With Your Whiskey.”
The truck resembles a cement mixer, but instead of construction materials, it’s filled with a cocktail called the “Mixed Up Monkey.” The drink features Monkey Shoulder whiskey, mint simple syrup, fresh lemon juice, soda and mint leaves.

In Orlando, the Monkey Mixer will be stopping at the following locations:

► March 21: 12 p.m.-3 p.m. at Twin Peaks (227 FL-436, Altamonte Springs)
► March 22: 5 p.m.-8 p.m. at Twin Peaks (8350 International Dr., Orlando)
► March 29: 5:30 p.m.-10 p.m. at Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace (1900 East Buena Vista Dr., Lake Buena Vista)
► March 30: 5:30 p.m.-10 p.m. at Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace (1900 East Buena Vista Dr., Lake Buena Vista)

Stops are being added for the truck through April 2, with exact details to be determined. All of the events are open to the public and individual venues have various cocktail specials.
Monkey Shoulder has received numerous accolades including designation as Drinks International’s Top Trending Scotch Whisky Brand of 2017, its fourth consecutive win in the category, and receiving the World Spirits Competition 2016 Double Gold honor.

Fun facts about The Monkey Mixer:
• The capacity for the “Mixer” is the equivalent of 123,000 bottles of Monkey Shoulder
• The Mixer is over 27 feet long, 13 feet tall and 8 feet wide
• The mixer is powered by a 5000 watt Cummins Onan diesel commercial generator
• The sound system packs over 2000 watts of power

This may be a fun, unique experience if your in the Orlando area.
