Australian Cocktail Month
Time Out says
Get your twizzlers out, Sydney's cocktail scene is getting a shakeup in May
Come May, Sydney is set to turn into a Sazerac-stirring, Martini-shaking wonderland of cocktails and mixed drinks galore. It's the inaugural Australian Cocktail Month, and it's roping in some of the city's best bars and bartenders – and of course, locally made spirits, beers and more.
So how does it work? Just buy a $20 ticket to get access to a menu specially prepared for the event, at venues across the city. The ticket gives you a solid discount on cocktails all month, too: each one comes in at $14, and non-alcoholic options at $10 (abstaining punters can get involved too – without sacrificing on flavour and depth).
A total of 72 venues have been tapped on the shoulder to be a part of the event across Sydney, Perth, Melbourne and Brisbane. In Sydney, you can wander into favourites like Dead Ringer, Jangling Jacks, the Lobo and the Duke of Clarence (and so many more, yet to be announced). A host of notable brands will also be part of the lineup, including Bombay Bramble, Hendricks, Patrón and Glenfiddich.
