BBC Apprentice finalists make a beer cocktail!!

When my fab friend and star of BBC One’s ‘The Apprentice’ , Joy Stefanicki revealed her plans to rope in pals from last year’s show to do something funny for money for RED NOSE DAY, I was chuffed to bits she wanted to include BEER.

Last Friday her plans came to fruition when she, Liz Locke, Laura Moore, Chris Bates and Jamie Lester pitched up to the luxurious Malmaison in Birmingham to get tutored by bar manager, Jamie on how to make  a variety of special cocktails. WHY? So they could shake the night away for any generous Birmingham drinkers who wanted to donate money to COMIC RELIEF in return for the privilege of one of the TV stars making them a cocktail at the gorgeous Chameleon Bar.

I’ll post a vid soon Bar Manager, Jamie showing Chris who to make a Mad Mojito, as I’ve called it: an easy concoction where I got Jamie to substitute the usual soda water that goes into this popular Cuban cocktail with Purity Ales’ Mad Goose. Needless to say it tasted delicious, the verdict was great and Chris couldn’t seem to put his bottle of Mad Goose down 😉

I couldn’t make it down to see the shenanigans that ensued at Chameleon Bar  on Friday night, but Joy assured me it was mayhem. Joy told me ‘We raised £2,673  throughout the day! We visited a couple of large offices, auctioned some spa treatments, created & sold 182 cocktails and 171 shooters and even did a song. All in the name of comic relief. Go on, do something funny for money…or if you really aren’t the funny type, a small donation really would be welcome here!’

So here’s how!

And all the fun on the telly is on RED NOSE DAY which is on Friday March 18th on BBC One.

There’s snippets of the guys making cocktails in this video!!!!!!
