Adelaide, we know you’re bubble tea obsessed — so we thought you’d like to know South Australia is home to an award-winning boozy bubble tea cocktail!
Honni Cox of Hades Hula House won the 42BELOW Sustainable Cocktail Showcase with her cocktail One in A-Melon, focussing on zero-waste production.
Have you ever tried a boozy bubble tea served in a cup made from dehydrated watermelon and beeswax? Well, Honni made it a thing.
The best news is it flips an existing damaging beverage – too much plastic packaging – and creates a new tipple that utilises every inch of its ingredients, reducing waste, increasing flavour and sending a strong message at the same time.
All prize winners from the competition are heading off on an eco-trip to Bali to meet 42BELOW’s innovative Trash-tech partner, Grinngo, and be taken on a Tour-de-Trash, helping save the ocean from plastic pollutants, working in recycling and sorting plants, and training local Bali bartenders on how to run a sustainable cocktail programme.
We’ll be waiting to see how these bartenders come back changed and ready to continue leading the way in sustainable bartending here in Australia.
The 42BELOW Sustainable Cocktail Showcase aims to promote and celebrate the great work that awesome bartenders are doing to create cocktails which are both sustainable and yum. And we’re on board with that!
