PARAQUITA BAY, Tortola, VI - Blended coconut milk, fresh pineapple, and kiwi, garnished with strawberry syrup were enjoyed by students last week during the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College (HLSCC) energetic mocktail social.

The happy hour event was part of the HLSCC Counseling Services initiative to educate students on preparing and enjoying non-alcoholic substitute beverages. 

According to a November 1, 2019, press release on the initiative, Road Town Wholesale Brand manager, Collin Campbell as part of his company's sponsorship of the event, introduced over 230 students to various- mixed drinks and allowed them to engage in interactive demonstrations on ways certain ingredients can infuse the palette.

Campbell also delighted students and staff alike with bartending history dating back thousands of years ago, flourishing in Roman, Greek and Asian Societies.

Andrea Hamm, Director of Counseling services stated that “in light of National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week, it is of great consequence that students are aware that alcohol doesn’t have to be a necessity to have fun during socials or at events. Creating drinks that are colorful, vibrant and tasty can be just as enjoyable.”

National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week is celebrated annually throughout Universities and colleges during the last week in October.

The main goal during the week is to bring attention to community health concerns caused by excessive drinking among college students during various socials such as homecoming and frat parties, as well as other large celebrations on many campuses during the academic year.
