Summertime is THE season for cocktails, and nothing could be more refreshing than an incredible drink mixed up by one of Melbourne’s top bartenders - with sorbet as the star ingredient.
For all the Weis lovers out there (and that’s everyone, right?!) Weis Sorbet Exotics are really getting on board with summer sipping, introducing some incredible sorbet cocktails to five awesome bars around Melbourne. Running from 1 February until 15 February, you can try three mouth-watering exclusive cocktails at Melbourne favourites State of Grace, Mr Mason, the Wharf Hotel, Terra Rossa and World Bar & Restaurant. The world-first drinks have been concocted to celebrate the new Weis Sorbet Exotics range, which premiers a cracking series of surprising new flavour combos that we can’t WAIT to get a spoon into.
So, what summer flavours will you be sipping? If you’re a fan of a citrus twist, the Lemon My Turtle cocktail brings together Weis Sorbet Exotics’ Raspberry & Lemon Myrtle with Ketel vodka, apple, Chambord and lemon juice in one refreshing drink.
If orange is more your thing (or if, like me, you’re a gin lover at heart), Boxing The Compass will definitely float your boat. We’re talking Tanqueray gin, Pimms, a dash of lime and a healthy serving of Weis Sorbet Exotics’ Blood Orange & Tahitian Lime, finished with lime and mint to make those flavours pop.
Tropical vibes are all part of the parcel when you order a Coco Loco. Think the best Pina Colada flavour combo you’ll sip all summer, and you’re only part way there! This drool-worthy drink brings together Weis Sorbet Exotics Pineapple, Coconut & Lime, Havana rum, Montanegro and Lillet (that’s a French aperitif for those who aren’t up on their mixology know-how) in an exotic medley that’s fit for the hottest of summer nights.
Cocktail lovers, sorbet fiends and fans of everything worth putting in your mouth this month, you’ll have to be quick! The limited edition drinks will only be around for 2 weeks – from Monday 1 until Monday 15 February – and only at the five exclusive venues, so you’d better hot-foot it to your pick of the bunch and demand your Weis-based wonder, pronto.
In fact, we’re knocking off early this afternoon and doing just that…
- State of Grace, 477 Collins Street, Melbourne CBD | Everyone’s favourite CBD cocktail haunt – check out the hidden bar through the bookcase!
