For those who enjoy browsing cocktail recipes but always get distracted before purchasing the ingredients, there is now Drizly Premium Brand Hub, a collection of curated cocktail recipes where every ingredient is shoppable. On the same page, users can learn how to make a Mai Tai and order angostura bitters and dark rum.
A collaboration between FOOD&WINE and alcohol distributor Drizly, the site offers Spirits brands a chance to remedy one of their biggest weak spots. While most Spirits brand sites already publish cocktail recipes, barely any capitalize on them by offering readers a way to buy the ingredients on-site.
Most alcohol producers seem to understand that recipes have promotional value: 84% of Spirits brand sites feature cocktail recipes, according to L2’s Insight Report: Cocktail Recipes. However, only 4% include a product locator and 3% link visitors to an e-tailer where they can order ingredients online – reducing the likelihood that casual browsers will end up making a purchase.
Although Drizly competitors like Klink, Minibar, and Saucey already offer brand-sponsored recipes within their apps, the new content hub’s FOOD&WINE co-branding brings this content to a wider audience. By offering shoppable recipes featuring their products, brands can broaden sales and gain cachet among cocktail cognoscenti.
L2 emails keep you up to date on how brands are leveraging digital to grow their businesses.
