Got some self-isolation blues?
Simply Cocktails has got a cure, launching their first Home Five O’Clock-Tails video tutorials and virtual mini masterclasses on their Facebook page, so cocktail lovers can shake and stir their favourite tipple in the comfort and safety of their own home.
The first Simply Cocktails’ Facebook live cocktail mini masterclass has already taken place today, but this series of live mini masterclasses will take place every Tuesday and Friday until 30 June.
Next Tuesday night (7 April), Danilo Migliorini, mixology maven from Eau De Vie Sydney, will teach you how to shake up the ultimate Tia Maria Espresso ‘Quarantini’.
Luke Hanzlieick will teach you how to make a Chartreuse Green Chaud, a soothing winter warmer drink for those cool autumn nights.
Andy Buntine, former manager at Katuk in Melbourne will showcase the incredibly decadent Mozart Choc-tails (Thursday, 9April) for those looking to really treat themselves.
This will be followed by a ‘Tom Collins’ workshop by ambassador Josh O’Brien on Tuesday 14 April, featuring The Botanist Gin.
In addition to the live mini masterclasses, the team behind Simply Cocktails will recruit 100 Australian bartenders from around the country, that are currently out of work due to the current lockdown restrictions, to submit their cocktail tutorial videos.
That’s one cocktail per weekday for 100 days!
Whether your missing the famous Southside at Red October by Olivia Freear or signature cocktails from the mixology master Marcus Pascoe at Bank Street Social, it’s time to ensure your liquor cabinet is well-stocked with a diverse selection of premium spirits from Cointreau to The Botanist Gin, or Sierra Tequila to The Macallan Whisky.
With the devastating impact of COVID-19 on the hospitality industry closing bars across the nation and leading to 689,800 people already out of work and no doubt many more to lose their jobs, the team behind the Simply Cocktails Facebook Page has stepped in to offer a helping hand to some of our local bartenders who have recently lost their jobs with a new virtual cocktail workshop initiative.
All ingredients for the Simply Cocktails Home Five O’Clock-Tails are available in store and online from Dan Murphy’s, BWS, Liquorland, online retailers, Boozebud, HelloDrinks and hundreds of independent liquor retailers.
