Containing natural antioxidants and highly concentrated nutrients your body will definitely be thanking you after a cup or two, the perfect winter evening treat. 

Kombucha With A Twist 

No doubt you would have heard of kombucha by now, the superstar beverage that looks after gut health and promotes healthy bacteria and digestion. Well, we have exciting news, The Premium Liquor Co. and Good Buzz have partnered together to create New Zealand’s first-ever 100% natural, Kombucha-infused, clean vodka—Happy Booch. With three flavours, raspberry lemon, pineapple mango and lemon ginger, you no longer have to compromise health and taste when reaching for a cheeky alcoholic bevvy.

Saint Alice Staff Meals Are Now A Thing 

Viaduct hotspot Saint Alice is known for the stunning views and delicious dishes served up from the kitchen’s expert team of chefs. Their latest menu idea has us very excited and for good reason, you can now order 'staff meals'. Typically thrown together when hospo staff are given a chance to catch their breath and fuel up before a busy service, staff meals are what the talented team whip up for their own bellies. The Lunch Like Our Chefs menu which includes southern fried chicken on a 'dusty apron' brioche bun, croque monsieur and crumbed snapper tortillas, is served Monday-Friday from 11.30am to 3pm and all meals are $19. Get amongst the goodness ASAP.
