Their idea was to create a platform where party planners could easily make custom orders of drinks and have them delivered to their party venue. This team promises “alco-tainment” as they intend to not only provide alcohol but also to add life to any party with the special party decorations which the provide. When asked how they came up with the idea, Edit Szabo said they wanted to prove that the principles which they have learnt during the course could work for any idea. She said they wanted to show that if the things which were being taught could be successfully used for a seemingly stupid idea, then it can be applied to any idea at all.
