The contenders were asked to design new innovative drinks using popular mixer brands under the Coca-Cola portfolio such as Schweppes and Coke No Sugar products paired with some of the Thailand’s local herbs and spices. The winning drinks will be available at all Accor hotels and resorts across Thailand soon.

The winners are:

First runner-up: ‘Road to Phuket’ by Mr. Mongkol Saengchud from V Villa Phuket Hotel. ‘Road to Phuket’ mixed drink includes fresh pineapple juice – influenced by Phuket’s native pineapples – and “Coke” No Sugar beverage.

Second runner-up: ‘Caroline Sour’ by Mr. Danuphan Jansuwan from the Sofitel Krabi Phokeethra Golf & Spa Resort. ‘Caroline Sour’ contains passion fruit and cinnamon paired with “Coke” No Sugar.

Tourists and even Thai residents can enjoy all three winning recipes in any of the Accor Group – Thailand properties.

The COVID-19 pandemic has fuelled a home mixology movement with at-home crafting of cocktails and mocktails gaining popularity due to lockdowns and on-premise closures. The latest partnership between the beverage giant and Accor can be expanded to end consumers with campaigns and activities to encourage more Thais to mix The Coca-Cola Company’s offerings at home.
