Nuclear Running Dead

Building the future

Why your next couch should be a Grafton Everest.

It’s going to be a sparkling summer…

It’s just about that time when everyone is starting to say, “let’s circle back to that after the holidays.”

In other words, the image of lazy summer days is getting clearer, holiday plans are starting to take form, and even your children seem bearable. It’s summer, baby.

And with summer comes get-togethers with friends and family, outdoor braais, and parties “just because”. And what’s a party without a cocktail? (Your children aren’t THAT bearable…)

The BIBO fizz is the appliance every household needs this summer. Not only does it work without needing electricity, (no cocktails for you, Eskom), but it’s easy to use, and will impress even the most snobbish of houseguests.

It will add bubbles to any drink. Be it tea infusions, juice, water, flat beer, cold drink or wine, it will bring the sparkle. Our patented fizz infuser creates a controlled release of pressure, which allows you to carbonate any beverage, and will also completely adapt to your preferences, allowing you to choose the amount of fizz in your drink.

And we’re not about to leave you high and dry (get it?). Here’s an easy-to-make cocktail using the BIBO fizz, to truly show you how much your life is about change.

The Summer Rosè Sangria


· 2 stone fruit like peaches, nectarines, or plums, sliced

· 10 strawberries, halved and quartered

· 2 handfuls of fresh blueberries

For some variation, add a few tots of white spirits like gin or vodka


And for the non-alcoholic fans, don’t think we forgot about you…Check out this delicious, home-made lemonade that will add some sparkle to those warm summer days:

To serve use:

with the zest

· Make the syrup by placing the sugar, water and zest in a saucepan
