With the bar shut for over a year now, Electric Bar and Restaurant, in Cork City, is raising money via a crowdfunding campaign to deliver cocktails direct to home until the bar’s doors can safely reopen.
The bar’s team of mixologists, Carl D’Alton and Traford Murphy, are coming up with 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.
Electric Cocktails can be shipped anywhere in Ireland and the UK. The bundles range from €25 – €100 with a selection of cocktails to choose from, and restaurant vouchers available too. By purchasing a cocktail from Electric’s crowdfunding efforts, fans can help keep Electric in operation and ensure they team will still be there when it’s safe to reopen.
Owner of Electric, Ernest Cantillon, said: “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!”
