DIY and win with the perfect thirst quencher, Angostura’s Rock Shandy

Angostura Bitters

Angostura marks the start of summer with the launch of an Angostura Rock Shandy campaign to celebrate this iconic and refreshing South African mocktail!

Sunshine, smiles and cocktails: long summer days are on our doorstep and there’s anticipation in the air. It’s been a particularly hard year and a half, so it’s safe to say we’re all excited to start entertaining, safely, at home with our friends and family once again. And what better way is there to refresh your guests than by mixing up the perfect thirst quencher, the Angostura Rock Shandy?

After a day spent on the greens searching for that allusive hole-in-one or playing volleyball on the beach with your mates, the ultimate way to hydrate is with a refreshing, ice-cold rock shandy. This delightful sparkling alcohol free beverage has been a mainstay at South African restaurants, country clubs and homes for generations. Though it seems that everyone has their twist of the classic recipe of soda water, lemonade and ANGOSTURA® aromatic bitters, one thing has remained the same… the joy of sharing it with great company. And South Africa’s handy-lady herself Suzelle agrees.

The quirky Cape Town-based vlogger Suzelle won the hearts of South Africans with her hilarious SuzelleDIY YouTube series. Now, she’s bringing her brand of DIY to the Angostura Rock Shandy by getting hands-on with THE essential bar ingredient for that extra depth of flavour, ANGOSTURA® aromatic bitters. Because it’s not a true Angostura Rock Shandy if it doesn’t contain a few dashes from the can’t-miss bottle, featuring an oversized label and distinct yellow cap.

So, while Suzelle handles the how-to, ANGOSTURA® aromatic bitters will be ensuring that you entertain in style this summer. They’re giving away one of four chic drinks trolleys worth R5 000 each, fully stocked with everything you need to mix with style for your friends and family. All you have to do is visit, watch Suzelle’s guide to making the perfect Angostura Rock Shandy and then enter. It’s as easy as that. The competition closes 30 November 2021. Terms and conditions apply.
