'Twas the Night before Cocktailmas

'Twas the night before Cocktailmas, and all through the house;

Not a cocktail was mixed not even an ounce;

The bottles were placed by the chimney with care

In hopes that St. Cocktailmas soon would be there,

 

The kiddos were nestled all snug in their beds

While visions of presents danced in their heads;

Ma in her PJs and I in my cap,

Had just settled in for a sober winter's nightcap,

 

When down in the den arose such a clatter,

I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.

Away to the stairs I flew in a flash

Throwing on my robe and combing out my stash

 

When, what to my eyes should appear,

But a tipsy old man, drunk, smiling from ear to ear

 

With glee in his laugh so lively with class

I knew in that moment it must be St. Cocktailmas

 

He spoke not words but went straight to his work.

Mixing, testing, tasting, till he turned with a jerk

Extending his hand in front of his face

He gave me a thumbs up and skedaddled my place

 

Stumbling to his sleigh, to his team he gave cheer

And away they flew, far from near

 

But I heard him exclaim, as he rode out of sight,

HAPPY COCKTAILMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL, CHEERS TO THE NIGHT!!!

Year One

What up Leisure Nation!!!

Today is a pretty special day for us...It's our 1st Birthday aka Official 1st Year Anniversary aka Launch Day aka Official LeisureDay!!!!! 

One year ago today we launched Leisuremann’s Cocktail Mixes, knowing wholeheartedly we had something special and all we needed were likeminded people to enjoy it. Fast forward to today, with 2500 samples served and 650+ tins distributed across the globe, we could not be any more proud of our brand, its recognition, and our products.

Thanks to everyone who sampled, bought, critiqued, laughed, shared, liked, and helped make Leisuremann’s Cocktail Mixes what it is today. 

To celebrate, we are extending our 2 for $20 deal all weekend long. SHARE this leisure log post and help grow our Leisure Nation – SHOP NOW - 

Since we’re one now the question remains, what’s in store for year two? Simple. Over the next few months, you will see NEW Flavors, crowdfunding campaigns, serious adventures, and some long-awaited Leisuremann’s merch. Yes… a Leisuremann’s Chest Protector (T-shirts) will be on sale soon. 

Till this time next year, Leisure on Dudes!

Cheers // Matt & Cliff

Callin' Baton Rouge

"Callin' Baton Rouge", for those who don't know,  is a 1993 smash single made famous by none other than the great, Chris Gaines. Wait... sorry, error on our part! We mean country superstar, Garth Brooks. LOL! 

Unlike Garth, who is brought back to Baton Rouge because of the lovely Samantha, we make the pilgrimage to our capital city each month because of an ever growing network of talented, creative, and enthusiastic makers. Every second Saturday you will find these makers gathering on the corner of Eugene and Govt. street at the MidCity Makers Market to show off their newest leather bag or their new jewelry line or in our case a new classic cocktail mix flavor.

Now pushing close to 50+ makers, our market is the must attend event for the MidCity area of Baton Rouge. Not only rejuvenating but boosting this area and its community as well.

You may be asking yourself "How can I get involved?" or more specifically "I'm a maker and how can I sell my product?". The answer is as simple as 5 easy steps. Honestly, there are more but we at Leisuremann's like to keep things simple. Capisce? 

1) Find a Market - For us Baton Rouge was a short drive and made the most sense. For you, start with a quick and thorough Google, Facebook, or Instagram search. Use key terms like, "market", "pop-up", "festival", "shop", "event" + "your area" to garner results. Finalize the search by reaching out via email or phone to your perspective event. Searching will pay off. Trust us!

2) Face to Face - It's true, people do buy product site unseen but our experience has shown that people also heavily buy you and your team. Live, love and enjoy the product you sell. Wear it, eat it, use it, flaunt it, post it, snap it, have your brand reflected in you.

3) Quality Product - Make sure your product is up to snuff. Natural ingredients, sustainable, handmade, unique, organic, playful, creative, are just a few traits off the top of our heads. People can see through the bull$h&% from a mile away. Don't skimp.

4) Be Yourself - Just be you. Don't be overly professional or pushy when selling your product or service. Keep it casual, keep it calm, keep it real, and for damn sure keep it business bohemian. Chillax baby!!

5) Transparent - Like a window, if someone doesn't like your product or has an issues with your service ask them why and how would they change it. Honesty is the best policy. Starting and ending each event with a positive customer centric attitude is key.

Not everyone is going to have a "Baton Rouge" but everyone sure can find a community of makers and like minded individuals they rally around and in our case have cocktails with on a monthly basis.
