From cocktail to creation
Subtle yet complex; sweet but crisp. When the familiar meets the unexpected.
Schweppes® Club Soda was the catalyst for this collaboration between mixologist and artist. Discover a laid-back cocktail that’s more layered than it first appears and a dreamy graphic vision that rewards a second look.
iLLUSTRATOR & STREET ARTiST
Despite living more than 3,000 km apart, Josh and Priscilla share a West Coast spirit. They both grew up with the ocean, the beach and a hint of saltiness in the air that makes Schweppes® Club Soda the perfect choice for their collaboration. This classic mixer may seem straightforward, but it has unexpected layers, just like the creations it inspired.
Josh moved to Toronto 10 years ago from his native BC and worked his way up through the bar and club scene. His cocktail lists are known for their approachable refinement, just like his Schweppes® Club Soda creation.
Priscilla lives and works in Vancouver, where her distinctive, dreamy yet geometric style has livened up the urban landscape. She is inspired by all of the patterns and textures most people walk by every day, transforming these through her own symbolic language into something fresh and new.
