Perth Cocktail Trends 2018

In the 21st Century fads and trends are built on what pops up on our Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat.
Keep a look out for these Perth Cocktails taking over your feed in 2018.

The Espresso Martini is here to stay.
This classic cocktail was constructed by Dick Bradsell at Fred’s Club in late 1980s, when a young model who Bradsell now claims is world famous asked for something to “Wake me up and F*** me up.” His solution was vodka, fresh espresso and sugar, shaken and served in a martini glass. Turn a downer night into a banging night!

Twists of classic cocktails
Our famous Watermelon Mojito will be around Perth this summer! Look out for Perth bartenders adding flavoured tonics to gins and liqueurs to your spritz!

Colourful drinks like Frose , Aperol Spritz, orange wine and blue prosecco.
We aren’t saying these are amazing drinks by any means by these are set to fill your feed due to the vibrant colours they are! Drinking blue prosecco is asking to be grammed. Blumond is an Italian BLUE bubbly by Saraceni! Its now In Australia, but Perth is still waiting. Lets hope it comes in 2018!

Infusions that are both tasty and healthy! Blueberries, flowers, ginger, saffron, turmeric can be muddled in vodka, tequila or gin! Even Kombucha used as a mixer. Drinking these infused beverages will help you feel less guilty when on a ‘diet’ but keep you in out with your friends who love to PARTY!

How to make a Classic Cocktail!

Want to show your guests who the real bartender is but only have a minimal liquor collection?

Why not try a QUICK Old Fashioned cocktail!
A minimal liquor collection should contain Bourbon, if you don’t have any go buy some as this is a staple in any collection.


You’re going to need:

  • Bourbon of your choice
  • An Orange
  • Sugar
  • Angostura Bitters
  • Ice


How to make it!

  1. Add 1 tsp of sugar into your glass. Then add three dashes of bitters and 45ml of bourbon.
  2. Add ice
  3. Stir gently until the level of ice and liquid equalizes
  4. Zest an orange peel over the glass and peel into the drink to garnish.
  5. ENJOY by yourself of with friends!

To really impress your guests take the orange zest and flame it with a lighter when squeezing it over your drink!

140 Art

We love a good street party and 140 Perth know how to do it!

If you haven’t seen the outdoor art gallery in Perth then you’ve been living under a rock! 140 Perth, Perth’s newest city redevelopment and retail/food hub above the railway is paving the way in rejuvenating Perth and we were lucky enough to be a part of it.

‘140 ART marks the beginning of an inspired journey to transform the CBD based property into a destination where food, art and fashion collide. The redesign will incorporate a permanent art package that will connect the architecture to physical spaces that people will want to explore and be part of.’

With Perth’s fashion and art elite, media and Perthonalities we hit the streets of Perth literally and were introduced to Perth’s best kept secret – our local artists! Serving ‘deconstructed’ and ‘reinvented’ mojitos, american sliders and traditional street fare we had a great time! – See you in the city!
