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, but these are set to fill your insta feed due to their vibrant colours! Drinking blue prosecco is asking to be grammed. Blumond is an Italian BLUE bubbly by Saraceni! It’s now in Australia, but Perth is still waiting. Lets hope it comes in 2018!

Infusions
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 keeps you out with your friends who love to PARTY!
