Shake it Like a Polaroid Picture – Moors Manor Care Home Celebrates World Cocktail Day

World Cocktail Day is a global celebration of cocktails, the date marks the publication of the first recorded definition of a cocktail on May 13 in 1806 as a ‘stimulating liquor, composed of spirits of any kind, sugar, water and bitters’. World Cocktail Day invites everyone to try something new, and perhaps a little exotic, this special occasion is celebrated by cocktail lovers worldwide.

Whether you’re a tequila fan, a whisky lover, a gin aficionado or you just like to mix it up and try something new, World Cocktail Day has something for everyone. It was certainly a day of fun-filled tastings for the staff and residents at Moors Manor care home in St Leonards, near Ringwood.

To mark the day, residents had so much fun taking part in a cocktail tasting party with sweet and savoury canapés prepared by our chef.

Tracey Aldin, General Manager at Moors Manor said: “We have all had so much fun today trying all sort of different cocktails from around the globe. Our residents really enjoyed their tasting session and had great fun sampling tasting them to vote for our favourite.”

Our varied life enrichment programme keeps residents active, and provides a daily choice of engaging physical, mental and spiritual activities tailored to residents’ interests and abilities.

Moors Manor is run by Barchester Healthcare, one of the UK’s largest care providers, which is committed to delivering high-quality care across its care homes and hospitals. Moors Manor provides residential care, dementia care and respite care.
