Cocktails for media relations specialists

PR-inspired Cocktails

The public relations professional and the cocktail have been long and faithful companions. In times of need, and usually at an ungodly hour, the PR pro closes his laptop and dials up for a glass of what ails him or her.

In honor of their illustrious partnership, we at Red Fan are opening the bar and crafting cocktails with a PR twist.

Here are a few of the sips on our list:

Crisis Concoction

For when their crisis has become your 24-hour war room

  • Vodka

  • Ice

  • No garnish, no nonsenseThe Disruptive Force

To drink on days when you’ve heard all of the industry jargon you can handle

  • Whiskey

  • Ice

  • Ginger beer

  • Mint

The Inbox Assassin

This one will have you seeing sweet visions of tiny little email snipers silently moving around your inbox with the sole purpose of taking out each and every email—one at a time. (ALT: to help take your mind of the thousands of emails you receive each day)

  • One shot Jaegermeister

  • 4-6 oz Red Bull

The De-Greaser

It takes you back to the days when you actually had a lunch break. Probably in elementary school. You remember...the ones that didn’t consist of reflux-inducing, greasy burgers eaten at your desk while juggling conflicting requests and management demands.

  • A cold craft beer of your choice

Fire in the Hole

When 10 hours of pitching and a marathon Spotify session has left your mind numb and ears ringing, and the only thing that will bring you back to the real world is a grenade (New Orleans Hand Grenade, anyone?) going off next to you.

  • 1.5 oz gin

  • 1.5 oz melon liqueur

  • 1.5 oz rum

  • 1.5 oz vodka

The Big Shot

And then there’s the celebratory shot you take when the Wall Street Journal does a stellar write-up on your fintech client.

  • Tequila

  • Lime

  • Salt

  • Congrats!

Disclaimer: Here at Red Fan we are vibrant, happy souls who truly do love the work we do. Hopefully we’ve made you chuckle. And, if you’re ever in need of a great cocktail, swing by the Helms House around 5 p.m.—we’ll be ending our work day and would love to chat over a cold one.
