From cocktail to creation

Unexpected combinations add effervescence to long summer nights.

Schweppes® Ginger Ale was the inspiration for this collaboration between mixologist and artist. The result? A vibrant summer cocktail bursting with flavour and an equally extravagant artistic interpretation.

DRAG PERFORMER & MAKEUP ARTiST

THE UGLY ONE

When Kate and The Ugly One met for the first time, the connection was electric, like two halves of the same spirit; bold, colourful and never boring. We asked Kate to create a cocktail with Schweppes® Ginger Ale that would inspire The Ugly One’s own unique artistic vision. Spoiler alert: It worked.

Based in cocktail-crazed Montreal, Kate is already well-known in mixology circles, having been nominated two years in a row for Bartender of the Year honours. She’s warm, she’s bubbly and she’s crafted a cocktail that takes Schweppes® Ginger Ale into a fresh new universe of taste.

The Ugly One are bursting with creative energy. From their iconic drag performances to their bold visual inventions mixing hair, makeup and costume design, they are currently lighting up Toronto’s fashion scene. And lighting it up very brightly.
