Mixologists and bartenders from all over Australia have been busy concocting the perfect booze-free beverage for Australian Bitters and Dry July's mocktail competition. Those who have thrown their hat in the ring to win the top prize of $5000 in cash were asked to create a tasty mocktail using as many fresh ingredients as they'd like, as well as one or more products from the Australian Bitters range.
The shortlisted mocktails – one each from 50 venues around Australia – have been chosen by the Dry July and Australian Bitters team and will be sold at the venues from July 1-31 alongside Australian Bitter's take on a classic mocktail: the Lemon, Lime and Australian Bitters.
Sydney venues getting in on the mocktail competition include: Cafè del Mar, Opera Bar, Papa Gede's, Pocket Bar, Stitch Bar, and Varsco. Check out their submissions to the competition.
The winning Dry July mocktail and winner of the $5000 cash prize will be announced on August 10. Give your favourite participating bar some love to increase their chances to win by taking a photo of their mocktail and tagging #mymocktail #australianbitters on Instagram.
