The Cocktails

HEALTH POTION

A reinvigorating tipple built on a foundation of Bacardi Superior Rum, flavoured with Disaranno Amaretto then balanced with a splash of fresh lemon juice. Shaken with a touch of Triple sec and served straight up with a large measure of cranberry juice.

MANA POTION

An exhilarating blend of 42 Below Vodka, apple pressé and the bluest of Blue Curacao’s, all shaken with fresh lime and charged with sparkling white wine served straight up.

OCARINA OF LIME

Masses of Bacardi Superior Rum smashed with fresh lime, mint leaves, sweetened with a teaspoon of brown sugar and blended with sparkling water.

ANGEL ISLAND

Passionfruit Pulp blended with Bombay Sapphire Gin shaken with fresh lemon and gomme syrup, served long then lengthened with a giant splash of chilled soda water.

BREATH OF FIRE

A giant slug of 42 Below Vodka blended with pulverised ginger root and tabasco sauce, with a fresh hit of lime topped up with Bundaberg Ginger Beer.

Last on the list of specialty cocktails was the

PRINCESS PEACH

Light long refreshing peach-flavoured attack with a large measure of Bombay Sapphire Gin, fresh lemon juice and Australian peaches muddled with a touch of peach liquor, served long and topped with sparkling water.

SHOTS

RED VS BLUE

A dual layer of Blue Curacao above DeKuyper Sour Grapefruit & raspberry cordial fight colourfully to the death.

PURPLE TENTACLE

A sweet, fruity combination of 42 Below Passionfruit Vodka, DeKuyper Apple Schnapps and grenadine. And it’s purple.

THE IMP

A mischievous integration of Blavod and Opal Nera (Black Sambuca) for a liquorice-flavoured kick in the teeth.

CLOUD STRIFE

A tasty sour blend of Cazadores Blanco Tequila, lime juice and Triple Sec with a backhand of DeKuyper Mandarin Schnapps.

THE SHAMBLER

McKenna Bourbon and Southern Comfort with a dash of Taric Acid create a monstrous challenge for the real men.

FINISH HIM

42 Below Vodka, tomato juice, garlic, Tabasco sauce, salt and pepper go together to execute a bloody fatality.

CHOCO ISLAND

A chocolatey mix of Hennessy Cognac and Dark Cacao lurking tastily beneath whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles.
