If you’re counting the days til you can knock off work and get merry and bright with your nearest and dearest, these boozy Christmas trees could be just what you need to kick off your celebrations.
You may have seen similar ‘trees’ around before but if you’re scratching your head and wondering what on earth we’re talking about, let us fill you in. The 'tree' is simply a metal tower which holds up to nine big juicy drinks for you and your pals. Think of it as a high tea platter but for drinks; so much more fun.
And good news is, a bunch of our fave cocktail bars from the guys at Sneakers & Jeans are jumping on the festive trend so you’ve got a few to choose from this Christmas season.
Here’s where you can tuck into a boozy Christmas tree this year.

The Flour Factory, PRICE: $100
You'll definitely want to rock around this tree, with nine gin and tonicas, featuring The Flour Factory house made Christmas gin and an array of garnishes. Once you’re done with those, look for the ‘Elf On The Shelf’ and dig into some discounted drinks, or give one of their special cherry Christmas cocktails a go.
Turkish Delight Martini Tree
Hadiqa, PRICE: $150
Want to send it in style? Tuck into nine delicious Turkish delight martinis, beautifully prepared for you to enjoy in Hadiqa’s lush inner city rooftop. Pair it with a few nibbles from their food menu and it’ll start to feel a lot like Christmas.
