So...How was Lunar Rainbow?

Great event by a great gal!

The popping candy and glitter cocktails went down a treat.

Little bit unusual working with those ingredients but will definately
feature again as the crowd really enjoyed both the nostalgia and fun of popping candy!!

Next gig coming at with the Eclipse girls at 'The Nave'

Keep Drinking!

A Winter recipe to try at home.

Here's a great little creation I've concocted this week, in the 2 blind Pigs Organic Laboratory.

Fabulously easy and great for any Vegans or those of you just too lazy to spend hours beating egg whites, egg yolks and cream.


Add to a good food blender.
50ml Organic Rum or Cognac (not as easy to find organic Cognac)
125ml Organic Soya Milk (Regular milk works too if you prefer)
4 Organic Dried Figs
20ml Organic Maple Syrup
5 decent sized ice cubes
A sprinkle of Cinnamon
A grating of Nutmeg

AND BLEND!!!! (for 20 seconds)

Pour it out and garnish with a little more nutmeg.


A really great thick and creamy cocktail to get you through the London winter.

Upcoming event - Sarah Kate Wilson at JJ's

The Blind Pigs are super excited to be providing the cocktails for one of
the biggest up and coming artists in London! Sarah Kate Wilson!
She has requested that our drinks become part of the artwork where the brief for the show was to create drinks to match her vision of:

"a nonsensical world where frivolity and flirtation are at play"

Come along and see what we have created for this very special event. We promise you won't be disappointed!

A little something about the artist:

Sarah Kate Wilson is an emerging British abstract painter who has been the John Jones artist in residence since August 2009.  Throughout her residency she has created ‘Lunar Rainbow’, a nonsensical world where frivolity and flirtation are at play transforming the project space gallery into an interactive painted environment. Walkways guide the viewer into the space where swings replace conventional viewing and seating platforms and works are observed whilst wading through a ball pool.

To accompany this playful exhibition Laurel Collective will be performing, and  the Two Blind Pigs will be making glittery, popping candy cocktails!

Private View 9th October 6 - 10pm
Exhibition 12th October - 13th November
Open Wednesday - Friday 10am - 5pm

Please RSVP to marketing@johnjones.co.uk

Conventional vs Organic: You be the judge!

Here is a little table that really illustrates the differences between organic and conventional farming!

Tell us which one you would choose:

Conventional Farmers:

  • Apply chemical fertilizers to promote plant growth
  • Use chemical herbicides to manage weeds
  • Spray insecticides to reduce pests and disease
  • Give animals antibiotics, growth hormones and medications to prevent disease and spur growth
Organic Farmers:
  • Restricted use of artificial fertilisers or pesticides. Apply natural fertilizers such as manure or compost to feed soil and plants
  • Use crop rotation, hand wedding and mulching to manage weeds
  • Use beneficial birds, insects, traps to reduce pests and disease
  • Give animals organic feed or allow them access to outdoors. Use preventive measures such as rotational grazing, a balanced diet and clean housing to help minimise disease.

We here at the Blind Pigs know which one we would choose!

Why Organic Cocktails Are Better!

The choice to go with organic cocktails is really a simple one for the following reasons:

1) Organic drinks taste great!
It makes sense - well-balanced soils produce strong healthy plants that produce well balance strong delicious produce such as the organic vodkas and rums we use to mic our drinks. 


2) Organic farms respect our water resources
The elimination of polluting chemicals and nitrogen leaching, done in combination with soil building, protects and conserves water resources.

3) Organic farmers build healthy soil

Soil is the foundation of the food chain. The primary focus of organic farming is to use practices that build healthy soils.

4) Organic farmers work in harmony with nature
Organic agricultural respects the balance demanded of a healthy ecosystem: wildlife is encouraged by including forage crops in rotation and by retaining fence rows, wetlands, and other natural areas

5) Organic producers strive to preserve diversity
The loss of a large variety of species (biodiversity) is one of the most pressing environmental concerns. The good news is that many organic farmers and gardeners have been collecting and preserving seeds, and growing unusual varieties for decades. Which means more delicious cocktail and flavor combination's for many decades to come!

These are just some of the reasons that the Blind Pigs choose organic produce to make all our delicious beverages.

The Assemblage Event!

This is what spoonfed had to say about the event:


What a great event and a great review.

That lovely lady Lily Vanilli was there with her cupcakes and the folk
over at Garufa were providing the finest steaks from Argentina to match
perfectly with our Mojitos!

By the end of the night the crowd had drunk us dry,
solid effort considering the amount of booze we carted into the venue!

Keep Drinking!
