The Recession

Affordable drinking ideas during a recession.

On the 12th August the government announced the UK was officially in a recession for the first time in 11 years. The economy was impacted hugely by the coronavirus pandemic and restrictions during lockdown, causing it to shrink 20.4% compared with the first three months of the year. For many people, the recession may mean uncertainties in employment and for most they may have to watch their outgoings even more than usual. Here at Yeti & The Fox we want to reassure people that just because there is a recession happening, you are still able to have fun, enjoy yourself and keep on drinking your favourite tipple!  We have provided you with a few affordable ideas you could do during this time of uncertainty, knowing you won’t be affecting your bank balance too much.  And with our amazing and reasonably priced capsules you can carry on drinking your chosen alcoholic beverage, without the consequences the next morning.

 Get experimental with homemade cocktails.

There’s no need to go all out at your local bar and end up spending a fortune on a couple of cocktails. We think it could be a fun activity to make your very own cocktail. By choosing cheap alternatives from the supermarket, you can replicate your favourite cocktail or put your personal stamp on a drink by creating your own, unique cocktail.

This August, take advantage of ‘Eat Out to Help Out’.

At specific restaurants across the country ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ offers customers a chance to enjoy 50% off, up to £10 per person on food and soft drinks across the country. It has been introduced in a bid to help boost the economy after the continuing effects of covid-19 on businesses. We think, if you are spending less on dinner, that means one thing – you can spend more on alcohol!

Share the cost with friends and have a party at home.

Hosting a party can seem slightly daunting when you are left with a big financial burden to fill all on your own. We think it could be a fun and fair idea to come up with a party in which all of your friends have an input; spreading the cost and generating more fun ideas to do throughout the night.

Have a movie night in your front room.

No need to spend unnecessary amounts on a cinema tickets when you could re-create the whole experience in the comfort of your own living room. In fact, here at Yeti & The Fox we think you can make the night even better by including a cheeky liquor whilst the film is playing. You wouldn’t get that at a cinema!

Host games night, with an alcoholic twist.

I don’t know about you but I’m pretty sure most households all have that special cupboard which is full to the brim of board games which have been collated over the years. Why not make use of them and invite friends or family over for a night filled with old board games? It means no one has to waste money on paying for yet more games, when you already have a house full of them! And, with no money being spent on entertainment, it means everyone can put in a few pounds for their favourite alcoholic swig.
