Coca-Cola's Designated Driver

The 13th annual Designated Driver campaign is encouraging the nation to give the ‘Gift of a Lift’ this Christmas to help keep our roads safe.

The award-winning campaign running across Ireland and Northern Ireland will once again offer free soft drinks, water or juice to designated drivers from 28th November, with a number of leading GAA and rugby stars lending their support for the 2017 campaign.

This year, Coca-Cola HBC has also created bespoke ‘Coketails’ created by expert mixologist Ilario Alberto Capraro.

As an additional option to the ‘two free soft drinks’ on offer, the unique mocktail recipes will be visible on point-of-sale in participating venues, and aims to enhance the occasion for selfless designated drivers across the country.
