New Series: Wizard of Oz 80th Anniversary

Lions and tigers and bears and – oh my! – can you believe it’s been 80 years since the release of this classic? We tried to capture the very best of the film’s imaginative iconography, though it was hard to pare down to just twelve drink designs. Here’s a sample of our favorites. 

New Series: Classic Beer Ads

These fun Ripples are reminiscent of classic 1950s beer advertising and will make you feel nostalgic even if you were born in 1980. Like washed denim or the Rolling Stones, some things just never go out of style.

 

Series Spotlight: Celebrity Birthdays

Astrologically-speaking, most of August is ruled by the creatively expressive sign of Leo, the drama kings and queens of the zodiac. So it’s no surprise that this month has a talented line-up of celebrity birthdays!

 

 

August Staff Picks: The Andy Warhol Collection

Andy Warhol may have coined the term 15 minutes of fame, but his influential pop art still attracts the spotlight more than half a century later. To celebrate what his birthday on August 6th, we re-produced some of his most notable works for inspired drinking.

You probably don’t realize just how many of your customers practice yoga, but with these fresh yoga-inspired Ripples, you’ll soon find out. So bring those iced-chai lattes back to the menu and add some Krishna Das tracks to your morning playlist. Namaste!

 

 

Series Spotlight: Star Wars Day

Yep, it’s a real thing. Star Wars Day originally sprouted up as a grassroots event initiated by fans, and has since been officially adopted by the movie’s production company Lucasfilm.  The celebration date, May 4th, was chosen as a pun on the cult movie’s catchphrase: May the Fourth Be With You. Here at Ripples, we’re more than happy to run with that pun theme, as you can see in some of these featured designs below!

Series Spotlight: Mother’s Day Ripples

Treat mom to an extra special brunch this Mother’s Day, May 12th, with fun Ripples that show just how much she’s appreciated (and which she can brag about to her friends!) Our favorite Ripple honoring this holiday is the ‘Best Mom’ heart tattoo. Unlike permanent ink on your bicep, she’ll be delighted to see this served up on a frothy cappuccino or chai latte with 100% natural drink ink.

May Staff Picks: Buddha’s Birthday

Buddha’s birthday is celebrated in 18 countries throughout East Asia, as well as Australia, Brazil, Canada, and the United States. According to Buddhist scripture, Prince Siddhartha Gautama was born in present day Nepal approximately 2,500 years ago. These Ripples honor his life and teachings which continue to instruct billions of people throughout the globe on attaining enlightenment and ending  suffering. (Just don’t ask us to give up our attachment to coffee.)

According to the Earth Day Network, this global event is celebrated by more than 1 billion people in 192 coutries and is the largest civic-focused day of action in the world.
