Can't bring yourself to say one of those really long and embarrassing cocktail names like Father Rusty's Gin Nipple Extravaganza at the bar? Then innocent's new Coconut Watering Hole pop-up might be for you.

Open at Boxpark in Shoreditch on 11 August, there will be a range of coconut-based mocktails available, which can be ordered through Instagram using a corresponding sequence of emoji.

For instance, tag a photo 'hashtag *halo emoji* *palm tree emoji* *water emoji* *watermelon emoji* *martini emoji* and a Pink Virgin Mojito will promptly arrive at your table.

It's 2015, you can fire a rocket at a rocket if you want to!

Entrance is free to the one day-only watering hole, which will also feature a coconut shy, coconut-themed beauty treatment and steel band.

BOXPARK, Shoreditch High Street, E1 6GY. 11TH August. 8AM – 7:30PM
