Deflate the Elephant and the Cocktail Deeva present the 9th Hole Mocktail just in time for summer long weekend entertaining!

Summer isn’t complete without outdoor entertaining, barbeques, boating and having guests over to our backyards and cottages. But, being a “host with the most” is more than throwing a great party.  It’s also about making sure everyone has a safe and enjoyable time.

Deflate the Elephant, LCBO’s social responsibility campaign, urges Ontarians to speak up to help prevent someone from drinking and driving.

“We encourage everyone to have a safe summer season by drinking responsibly and to never drink and drive or boat,” says LCBO President and CEO Bob Peter.

“We can help hosts plan ahead and entertain safely by offering responsible hosting advice through our store staff and online tools.”

Visit the Deflate the Elephant website to download responsible hosting tips, entertaining checklists and other Mocktail recipes and like them on Facebook!

Here’s a delicious, alcohol-free Mocktail for Victoria Day celebrations in a short video featuring none other than Cocktail Deeva Dee Brun.
