Have Your Cocktail and Eat Your Straw Too

Have Your Cocktail and Eat Your Straw Too

UK – As part of their goal to reduce plastics used in their operations, Diageo has created an innovative solution to cocktail straws – make them an edible garnish.
Packaged in paper, these straws are flavored to pair with some of their premixed cocktails: Pimm’s & lemonade comes with a strawberry flavored straw, Gordon’s gin and Schweppes tonic includes a lemon flavored straw, Bailey’s and iced latte is paired with a chocolate flavored straw, Captain Morgan’s rum and cola is served with a lemon flavored straw, and Smirnoff and cranberry comes with a lime flavored straw.These flavored straw pairings echo the traditional garnishes that come with these classic drinks. They also serve as a cocktail enhancer, all while reducing single-use plastic.
