Sydney’s thirst for coffee cocktails seems unquenchable. Luckily, Mr Black – a Central Coast-based distillery and coffee roasting house – is keeping caffeinated cocktail lovers satisfied this month, with their cold brew coffee liqueur inspiring Caffeine Festival on May 25-27, dedicated to the buzzy elixir (tickets are on sale here).
And if you need to build up your caffeine tolerance in preparation for this weekend of boozy masterclasses, fine food and spiked lattés, there’s more delicious cocktails on the horizon. Mr Black is joining forces with hospitality group Merivale to wake up Sydney’s bar scene. Spirits specialists across eight much-loved Sydney venues have concocted drink recipes to honour the caffeine gods, brought to life with Mr Black’s delicious cold brew coffee liqueur or coffee Amaro. Why not take a tasting tour of imaginative coffee-drenched cocktails?
