Leonards Bar & Bistro, Brisbane
If you’re out and about after work in the Brisbane CBD this afternoon, you’ll do well to drop by Leonards Bar & Bistro on Mary Street. The bistro is offering great eats at the bar — with a French accent — but the bar is doing some great things.
Like this cocktail, the Botanica: Melbourne Gin Company Single Shot Gin, Terres Rouge Aperitif Figue, Muyu Vertiver Gris, bush honey and strawberry gum paint. Delicious stuff.
The Barber Shop, Sydney
It’s Australia’s premier gin bar, an award-winning gin joint that offers great cocktails, great gin and good times (and a barber shop on site, too).
Your best bet this weekend: their Vermillion Cobbler, a long and refreshing mix of 2020 East London Dry Gin, PX sherry, Regal Rouge Lively White, rhubarb cordial, and lemon juice garnished with raspberries, lemon wedge, and mint.
Bibliotheca has been slaking the thirsts of Adelaideans for a while now, and with drinks like this East to West cocktail — featuring Hendrick’s Gin, green tea, acid and topped with Fever-Tree Soda Water — you’d be hard pressed to find a better place to get your weekend off to a delicious start.
This is just a small selection of the great bars and cocktails on offer for Australian Cocktail Month during the month of May. Australian Cocktail Month brings you discounts on delicious cocktails at 72 great bars across four cities, supporting bars, bartenders and spirit makers along the way — get your $20 pass to good times here.
