The guest at the wedding were more than 300 hundred in attendance and the ice cubes were not in short supply. If you are among the group of people who think it is not possible to do it in a larger quantity for commercial purposes then you are only giving a reason not to start.


How about setting up a bar where people can hang out for small chops (chin chin, meat pie, doughnut etc) with Chapman drink for a combination.

You will make great sales because this is a drink that is loved by all not minding the age, sex or tribe.

Another way to do the business is to be hired to prepare Chapman drink in occasions such as events, wedding parties, birthday ceremonies etc . Many people are looking for drinks to crunch from as they sip.

  1. Geraldine syrup makes your drink sparkling red in colour you can explore other options maybe something like blue, pink etc our mind-set is waiting to grab such opportunity.
