The annual Holiday Season is upon us, which means lots of food, lots of gifts and lots of drinking, whether boozy or not! But, just like last year, I will organizing my most precious Global Drinkstagram Event again as well: SECRET SANTÉ! And from today until the 7th of December, you’ll be able to sign up again as well!
What is Secret Santé?
It works exactly like a regular ‘Secret Santa’: Everyone who decides to join will secretly get an account assigned (by me) of another person that has joined in. It’s then up to all of you to create a tribute drink for that assigned person. Have a look at last year’s submissions.
You get complete creative freedom to post whatever tipple you want: whether it’s a cocktail or mocktail, a Gin Tonic or a dram of Whisky… Just make sure that in one way or another, you’re honoring the person you got assigned (take a look at their feed, where they’re from, their bio, maybe have a look if they have a blog or whatever)…
What is expected from you if you join?
1) You have to create 1 (one) drink for the person you are assigned. You’re supposed to keep this a secret for everyone, so when you finally upload your drink, only then is revealed which fellow Drinkstagrammer you had and what drink you made in honor of him/her. Hurrah! Fun times AND surprises!
2) You have to use the hashtag #SecretSanté (mind the é!) and both tag and mention the person you’re creating your drink for AND me (@ServedBySoberon). This way both they and I are sure to be notified (because of time differences overnight posts are sometimes overlooked and that would be too bad!).
3) Your drink should be uploaded between the 15th and the 31st of December 2018.
IF because of any reason you’re having issues creating a drink, or having issues with the timespan, just get in touch with me, I’m following up everything closely and will make sure there’s a solution for everyone and everything.
What do you get in return?
1) Someone else will be creating a custom drink for you as well, this way we’re spreading the Holiday Spirit among the Drinkstagram community, proving once again that we’re a close-knit community that really goes the extra mile for each other.
2) I will make a story for all of you, with each #SecretSanté getting both a shoutout and be part of a highlighted story on my own account!
How do you join?
Get in touch with me via Instagram DM, twitter, email, WhatsApp, Facebook, whatever way you want! Do make sure you get a confirmation!! Last year we had 60+ people joining in, let’s see if this year we can reach the 100 mark!!
Submission can be made UNTIL the 7th of December, so I can get back to everyone as soon as possible and everyone can start creating their drinks in time!
And, lastly, it doesn’t matter how many followers you have or where in the world you are located, this is all about being part of a beautiful global community. Just make sure your account is not set to private.
Cheers to the Holiday Spirit!
Disclaimer: Even though I am ‘the person behind the event’, I am in no way responsible for the creation of the drinks, nor the fact everyone that joins in will end up creating a drink. Though I promise that if your ‘Secret Santé’ fails to upload a drink, I personally will create a drink for you in the aftermath. Because everyone deserves a drink!
