Bring a touch of panache to your night-in watching the EPAA awards ceremony AND practise your cocktail making skills at the same time! All in your PJs and house loafers. Why not?
We’ve got two cocktails that you can prepare for the screening — on Thursday 3 September 2020.
We start the evening with awards for the Primary educational publishing sector. For that, we’ll need a Teacher’s Pet.

The Teacher’s Pet:
Put ice in a glass
Start with 45mls of blended whiskey
Next, 15 mls of dry vermouth
Add a little teaspoon of sweet vermouth
And a dash of bitters

Garnish with orange and a maraschino cherry.
Sip, argggghhh. Warming and delicious.

We don’t have a name for this one yet, but maybe the EPAA-tini?
As we announce the Secondary and Tertiary educational publisher winners, call in springtime and dose up on vitamin C with these fruity flavours.
You will need limes, mint, passionfruit, sugar and something bubbly.
The EPAA-tini:
Choose a big glass
Put in 5 lime wedges and,
8 mint leaves.
Then add 16mls of sugar syrup
or just drop in a teaspoon of raw sugar
Muddle the limes, mint, sugar and then add in passionfruit pulp

Add ice all the way to the top of the glass – and fill with something fizzy (like soda water, lemonade or lemon squash)
We want to see how your team is celebrating. Take a snap of your cocktail creations and share it on socials — use the hashtag #EPAA2020 & #TeachersPet or #EPAAtini — and you could win a prize!
Cheers and…
