The Collins Bar launched their annual bespoke Martini Collection this month and we were floored by how amazing each cocktail was presented and most importantly, tasted. It was the perfect setting for an after work drink overlooking Victoria Square that glistening from an earlier winter drizzle.
The five cocktails on offer this year are expertly named the Sour Kappa, the Jammin, the Ruby Rose, the Aloe Fizztini and the Nip.
As Martinis are traditionally a gin cocktail – the Jammin features a delightful mix of gin, contreau and apricot jam.
The Aloe Fizztini and the Nip are vodka martinis – the Aloe with a dash of vermouth and aloe soda, and the Nip with of citrus vodka and St Germain Elderflower.
The Ruby Rose features spiced rum and an authentic house made fruit syrup – giving it the complex flavour balance that you won’t find anywhere else. A specialty for the mixologists!
And finally – the Sour Kappa is championed by an Italian liqueur, Disarrono, with plum wine and sweet and sour liqueur.
The Collins Bar is located at the Hilton Adelaide at 233 Victoria Square, Adelaide. You can try on of these gorgeous, limited edition martinis throughout July and August.
