A Very Foxy Party: Purple Rain Retro Cafe, 10 August

What happens when you mix Quick Brown Fox and Purple Rain? You get a fabulous foxy party! One of us spent last Saturday night sampling Arjun Haszard’s Quick Brown Fox and Lazy Dog coffee liqueurs in the Purple Rain boudoir while listening to smooth jazz. It’s a hard life!

Quick Brown Fox is no ordinary coffee liqueur. Using a unique cold extraction method, Arjun has put a lot of time and thought into creating this tantalizing and thirst-quenching liqueur for us to enjoy. He works alongside The Strictly Coffee Company where the beans are roasted. Since its inception in December 2011, Quick Brown Fox has won a bronze award at the International Wine and Spirit Competition and has really taken off. For those of you who prefer a decaf alternative, Arjun has created Lazy Dog.

The Purple Rain team laid on a scrumptious feast of hedgehogs, falafel, mini quiches, curried egg, vege platters, dutch doughnuts, you name it!

It brought back fond memories of our own retro party several months back. Jazz-goers looked sophisticated and suave, yet the atmosphere was cheerful and inclusive, a great event for making new friends.
