Things to make us go “OOFT!”

ByThe Cocktail Lovers


Whether it’s an “ooh””, an “ahhh” or a “yum” we all have a special little sound that we utter when we taste something that just hits the spot. For Leanne Ware it’s “OOFT!” Hence the name of the website she’s just launched.

Whether it’s wine, beer, spirits or cocktails, OOFT! aims to bring together a whole range of tasty drinking experiences for staying in and, as lockdown lifts, going out.

There’s a packed recipe section which is helpfully searchable by spirit category, types of drink like highballs and classics, as well as occasion. There are plenty of videos, too, for the key recipes, along with a selection of techniques.

And if you want to make your home drinking just a little bit easier the site has you covered. There a delicious choice of DIY kits featuring the likes of a Toasted Coconut Old Fashioned, Wild Cherry Cooler and Cream Tea Negroni. Plus a round up of some of the best cocktail delivery services from the likes of The Drinks Drop and World of Zing, including a Talisker Sea Side Old Fashioned from the former and a Steel Aged Manhattan from the latter, along with deliveries from bars such as Swift, Oriole, Nightjar and Filthy XIII. There’s a handy selection of wine, spirit and cocktail subscription services too.

Wine, spirits, beer and cocktail ideas for drinking at home and going out.
Drinking at home and out and about with OOFT!

Currently the events section covers virtual online sessions including a selection of wine and gin tasting classes. Looking ahead there’s going to be an ever-growing collection of live experiences too such as cocktail masterclasses and rum making workshops.

As if this wasn’t enough it also make for a great destination for gifting ideas, with a growing section that brings together bar merchandise, rare spirits, tasting kits and a whole lot more.

With plenty more in the pipeline, we say OOFT! is well worth checking out.
