Schh, we have a secret… there is a new bar in Melbourne…serving bespoke cocktails inspired by current London bar trends. And listen closely, because it’s only here for three weeks.
We were lucky enough to get a sneak preview, and are pleased with the tasty and thirst quenching findings.
Bar Schweppes resembles a boutique cocktail bar you would find underground in the center of London. A feast for the senses, with every element reminiscent of the UK city. Bustling crowds, moodily lit, drinks flowing freely – I’s a brilliant place to spend an evening. And there’s a grand piano and London Telephone Box to boot.
Open only Thursday to Saturday until November 7, Bar Schweppes will serve cocktails, and only cocktails made with mixers from the new Schweppes range which showcases global bar and cocktail trends.
We’ve often thought that a drop of Schweppes with the right mixture of ingredients can be a winning formula for an epic cocktail. A visit to Bar Schweppes could provide the inspiration you need to spice up your summer sip of choice.
Cocktails on offer include The ‘Ello Guv’nor made with Schweppes Lemonade with Citrus & Cucumber, Pimm’s, mint, strawberries and cucumber and The Picadilly Citrus made with Schweppes Orange Grapefruit & Bitters, Tanqueray Gin, lime and mint. The official cocktail of the Melbourne Cup Carnival is also available, and sure to get you racing with its powerful combination of Schweppes Agrum Blood Orange, Smirnoff Vodka, fresh lime juice and mint.
The food also has a contemporary pommy accent; Chip Butty, House Fish Fingers with mushy peas and chips and Tom Kerridge Milk Buns with beef brisket, coleslaw, pickles and hot brown sauce.
