We’ve all had those days – usually Fridays, sometimes Mondays, but that’s not recommended – where there’s a little extra time before that arvo pow-wow and we want a cheeky cocktail with the colleagues. Across King Street Wharf you can find a world of cocktail options, where all the classics are on offer. But there are also some very different cocktail choices, for a different afternoon with the workmates.
Oh Captain! My Captain! – The Loft
A must for all fans of Dead Poets Society (and who isn’t?) this delectable drop from The Loft combines Captain Morgan dark rum, sloe gin, pineapple, lime and falernum syrup, served in an adventure mug to help any drinker seize the drink – sorry, seize the day.
Bend And Snap – Cargo Bar
For a legally good long lunch, strut, sashay, saunter, bend and snap your way into Cargo Bar. Blending Pampero Especial rum, Aperol, passionfruit and bitters, it’s layered with a glittered apple foam for a sparkly lunchtime twist.
Polynesian Pimms – Bungalow 8
An island take on an English classic, the Polynesian Pimms cocktail jug at Bungalow 8 is the closest thing a drink can come to a holiday. With Pimms, pineapple, seasonal fruit, lemonade and ginger ale, it’s a refreshing fruity flavour sensation to share.
Sake, Sake, Sake – Kobe Jones
Not strictly a cocktail, this is a more like a trip around Japan. Kobe Jones has eight different sakes on offer, from Sakuramasamune’s dry, light and smooth yaki-mare sake from the Nada Kobe region, to the refreshingly unique citrus flavour of Umenoyado’s yuzushu from Nara. Let your tastebuds trip across Nippon before the arvo WIP. Kampai!
