  1. 2. AGENCY: LiveXtention Srl, Digital Magics group, Milan, Italy CLIENT: Illva Saronno Spa CAMPAIGN: The Mixing Star The brief Disaronno is the most popular of the Italian liquors in the world. It is often drunken straight or on the rocks, while its potential use as an ingredient for cocktails is forgotten. Illva wants to tell a new way to have Disaronno: as a versatile product, ideal for mixed drinks and cocktails. The target audience of The Mixing Star are bartenders, which become natural Disaronno’s brand ambassadors for consumers. Bartenders have to be addressed by a prestigious international initiative, to make them loyal to the brand and to satisfy their desire to be the center of attention.
  2. 3. The solution The Mixing Star is an international bartender competition to select the new Disaronno signature cocktail . The bartenders recruiting and subscriptions happen exclusively online . Among all the subscribers who submitted their cocktails, 24 bartenders are selected for each of the national challenges (castings), held in prestigious locations in the major European cities. Countries involved: Italy , United Kingdom, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Greece, Russia. In the USA, the selected bartenders take part in Educational Seminars held in 5 States.
