Cocktail Cards! or, Everybody Loves a Giveaway.

5 Jul

To celebrate the launch of the new CalamityJennie site, we’re having our first ever GIVEAWAY!  And it can be yours for the very low price of FREE.

Introducing: Cocktail Cards

Nothing says “I’m sophisticated” like a “Signature Cocktail”.  Think outside of the box of wine or can of beer and step into sophistication with a Signature Cocktail.  Beyond the traditional and standard order, Cocktail Cards provide you with a drink idea that is tailored to the season.  This set includes two Signature Cocktail Cards that are perfect for the Summer Season – Bourbon Slush (Summer 2010) and Tequila and Tonic (Summer 2011).  You don’t need to decide which is right for you, because you’ll get both!  Sized just like a baseball card, each card features a glamour shot of the cocktail, with all of the stats and figures printed on the back.  Each card is placed in a protective sleeve that should help you from ruining it the first time you accidentally use it as a coaster (Side note: not safe to use as a coaster, even in the sleeve).

Cocktail Cards FAQ’s
Q: I don’t get it.  What are you talking about?
A: You’ve never heard of drink recipes printed in a handy baseball card size, that are suitable for trading, even though no one else has any for which you could actually trade?  Huh.

Q: Will you just send me the drinks instead of the cards?
A: No, I will not.  The ice would never hold up.

Q: What if I don’t like the drinks?
A:  Ha ha, that’s funny.

Want your very own limited edition* set of Cocktail Cards?  Email your name and mailing address to: jennie@calamityjennie.com

With your contact info in hand, I promise the following:
1. I will not sell or distribute your name on any sort of black market mailing list subscription service, no matter what they offer me to do so.  Unless it is super good, in which case I’ll at least think about it before declining.
2. I will not toilet paper your yard even though I’ll have your address, and it would be super easy. 
3. I will not send you other things you did not request, such as Hair Club for Men videos.  Not that I’ve ever done that (except for that one summer).
4. For as long as I’m able, or as long as my interest in this project holds out, I’ll keep sending you new Cocktail Cards featuring that season’s signature drink.  If you want out, just email me to let me know.  No sweat.

*Please note: Limited quantities available, much like my attention span.

    Mostly unrelated, but yours is the only Christmas card I cannot dream of throwing out. My husband often asks why I still have it, because as my children will tell you I throw EVERYTHING made of paper into recycling before anyone can read or enjoy it. The answer is : Best christmas card ever. Next year’s should be scented so I can hang it in my car.
    Love ya!
    PS- As a gin drinker I am morally opposed to tequila and tonic;)

    Susan, three things:
    1. it was supposed to be scented! perhaps I need stronger pine for next year.
    2. I felt the same way when I heard about the tequila and tonic, but now I like it. not as a REPLACEMENT for the gin, but as a sometimes substitute.
    3. just occurred to me that maybe my christmas card should be gin scented next year. it would probably hold up better.
