How to produce Chapman drink
the people that are with the opinion that there is no Chapman drink without angostura, well for me I think is their personal opinion. for most people that are not alcohol, love is you can always make your Chapman drink without Campari or angostura.
You can always use ginger as a substitute but one thing I must warn you about it is that it will have a different taste from the normal Chapman that is being produced with angostura bitters.
The best of Chapman drink could be made with the addition of several laborious fruits to it.
Ingredients for Chapman drink
- 1 bottle of spirit
- 1 bottle of Fanta
- bitter lemon (1 bottle)
- A few drops of ginger drink or Angostura bitters
- 1 cup of Ribera drink or black currant
- Grenadine syrup
- Ice cubes
- Fruits needed for garnishing (pineapple, lime, cucumber, strawberry, lemon, banana, or you can add whatever you prefer).
Procedures to make the drink
if you make sure you have your ice cube ready before you start making Chapman drink. You can make use of drinks like Fanta or Ribena to prepare it.
I haven’t been so great that you will make sure the final drop of drink will test as quality as the first one but if you make use of water when it has melted the dream could become diluted and taste flavoured only.
Follow these steps:
- Get your Fanta, pour it into a jug or mug.
- Add bitter lemon drink and sprite and start stirring.
- Pour 1 cup of blackcurrant drink and start stirring.
- Add little quantity of ginger or angostura bitters.
- Just according to your preference add grenadine syrup but check the colour why I didn’t because the more quantity you add, the more the colour changes to red.
- Refrigerate the drink
- Cut the fruits you bought into your preferred sizes.
- Get a glass
- Pour the ice cubes in it.
- Add some of the fruits.
- Pour the refrigerated drink into the glass.
- Insert straw and serve.
Reasons to venture into this business
here are some reasons that will convince you into doing this the business.
- This drink has huge profits.
- It is a highly demanded drinks by many people in Nigeria.
- it’s only a few people that are doing Chapman doing business in a commercial quantity.
- This business requires little capital which means it’s not capital intensive.
- This Chapman drink is not a common drink and as I said before it looks exotic and classical so people with high taste would like to patronize you.
The profitability of this business
this business is a highly profitable one because several people are willing to pay to take this drink.
Especially this fruity and natural one not the ones in plastic bottles.
If you have as low as N10000 you can easily start up this business. The profitability is very high because you can sell just a cup for N500 or more because this depends on the location where your business is situated in and the type of people that are coming to your place.
However, you should make sure you’re not carried away to charge much because this business thrives solely on turnovers to make high profit. So the more you get more customers the higher profit you make.
When you get a contract to prepare Chapman drinks for an occasion you can charge the Host judging from his personality and the kind of guests he’s expecting.
You will need an ice cube box to preserve your ice cubes because it has to be in good shape till you have finished serving people no matter how long it will take.
For the best taste you need to serve the Chapman drink you prepared immediately because it will maintain its pressure/gas contents.
Angostura bitters or Campari makes your drink get some kind of bitter but it’s optional to put it.
If you cannot find grenadine to buy then you can always make use of red currants to change the colour but one thing you should know is that the taste will be different.
