Pioneering Greeks: Apostolos Georgopoulos & Athina Karatzogianni, DrinkWorks
Welcome to “Pioneering Greeks”, the weekly column of GTP Headlines, which highlights the Greeks that stand out for their creative thinking in the business world. “Pioneering Greeks” is a collaboration between LoveGreece.com and Greek Travel Pages (GTP).
This week we introduce Apostolos Georgopoulos and Athina Karatzogianni from the DrinkWorks team. DrinkWorks offers comprehensive cocktail solutions / bar & cocktail catering, corporate gifts, bar consulting by experienced bartenders, seminars for professionals or not and team building activities.
The initial concept behind DrinkWorks cocktail delivery was quite simple: delivering at home or elsewhere a package containing whatever is needed to make cocktails like a professional bartender, from the ingredients and the recipe, to tools and glasses. Thus came to life the Cocktail Kits in 2010, which offered classic cocktail recipes with rum, whiskey, vodka, tequila, cachaça, sparkling wine and Greek mastiha spirit. Co-founders Apostolos Georgopoulos (Brand Innovation Manager) and Orestes Argiropoulos (Product Design & Development), along with Athina Karatzogianni (Project & Event Coordinator) form the base of the DrinkWorks cocktail delivery team, which includes a flexible array of collaborators.
All DrinkWorks services have been developed with the consumers’ needs in mind and are constantly updated according to feedback and requests. Apart from classic cocktail selections, DrinkWorks already offers virgin cocktails and a selection of hot chocolates, and plans on gradually including all kinds of beverages and beer. The packaging is eco-friendly and combines practicality and aesthetics.
Expanding the offered services, DrinkWorks does cocktail party delivery, either with special party kits or with the so-called Cocktail Jars, which contain a cocktail ready to drink once ice has been added.
DrinkWorks cocktail catering is ideal for private or business parties and events, with or without a bartender. There are also tailor made services for private or corporate gifts and product launches.
Inspired by the dynamism and creativity of the Greek entrepreneurial spirit, LoveGreece was founded in 2013 as an initiative to boost and promote the country’s image abroad by profiling talented and successful Greeks. With their ethos and vision, Greece’s entrepreneurs and professionals are an important aspect of the country worth highlighting to the world. LoveGreece is powered by Gina Mamidaki, the founder of the G & A Mamidakis Foundation.
