Are you sick of your usual?
Avoid um-ing and ah-ing and definitely don’t succumb to the notorious ‘surprise me’.
Instead, these five simple orders could contribute to a night you won’t forget (or if used effectively, forget).
1. Campari Cointreau
Bitter, floral Campari and the orange-based Cointreau complement each other’s charm. Add a hint of soda and a slice of orange to create this lively European gem.
- Campari (1 shot)
- Cointreau (1 shot)
- Soda (splash)
- Slice of Orange
2. Black and Tan
This old school classic is making a comeback. Despite the trend, many claim the combination of a hoppy, crisp ale/lager and creamy stout/porter, produces the perfect beer.
- pale ale/lager (1/2 glass)
- stout/porter (1/2 glass)
Introducing Cinnamon whisky: a throat tingling whisky-based delight. Add a little lemonade and a squeeze of lime to get a heavenly mix of spice, sweet and sour.
- Fireball Cinnamon Whisky (1 shot)
- Lemonade (generous dash)
- Squeeze of Lime
4. Spiced Cider
This one is pretty self-explanatory. Try beefing up your cider with the ever-popular: spiced rum.
- Apple Cider (glass)
- Spiced Rum (1-2 shots depending on your eagerness)
Deriving from Spain, this red wine variety is now being grown and made in Australia. Rapidly gaining popularity globally, its smoky, leathery cherry and tomato notes suit a range of foods.
- Just a healthy glass of Tempranillo (or a bottle or two)
Serving suggestion: w/ tapas on a sunny afternoon.
