The Applejack Cocktail Crawl

Sip you way around Sydney this Spring with Applejack!

As Silly Season approaches, it’s time to warm up your palate with creative cocktails that will have the tastebuds tingling.

We chatted to our Group Bars Manager, Lachy Sturrock, to get the lowdown on his favourite (AKA the BEST) cocktail at each of our venues around Sydney. Make sure you’re hydrated because we’re taking you on an Applejack cocktail crawl! 

Bopp & Tone

THE DRINK:
Myrtle Tommy’s

Del Maguey Vida Mezcal, fino sherry, lime, lemon myrtle shurb, orange blossom

Head to Bopp & Tone in the heart of Sydney’s CBD to enjoy post work drinks with a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. With such an impressive drinks menu it may be hard to decide, so we suggest starting with the ‘Myrtle Tommy’s’.  The perfect cocktail to get your night started after work on a Friday!

Lachy’s lovin’ it because…
“What’s not to love when you combine Mezcal, dry sherry, and sherbet notes of lemon myrtle in a cocktail served short. It’s boozey, citrusy and has a welcoming floral finish thanks to a dash of orange blossom!”

The Butler

THE DRINK:
The Hidden Agenda

Jalapeño Infused Del Maguey Vida Mezcal, Aperol, lime, falernum 

Nestled among the backstreets of Potts Point lies a tropical oasis with a view worth raising a cocktail for. A common favourite amongst Applejack staff is the ‘Hidden Agenda’ which takes a vibrant twist on the classic Margarita.

Lachy’s lovin’ it because…
“it’s quite a simple, somewhat equal parts cocktail, so not only is it quite easy to make- it’s also super refreshing and well balanced, with a subtle kick of spice from the jalapeño.”

The Botanist

THE DRINK:
Purple Haze

Blueberry Maker’s Mark Bourbon, peach liqueur, spice blueberry, orange bitters

Head Northside to visit “Kirribilli’s local gem”. The Botanist encompasses a worldly mix of tastes and concepts which is reflected in their range of exciting seasonal cocktails. A real crowd pleaser is the ‘Purple Haze’… we could drink it for days!

Lachy’s lovin’ it because…
“it’s a fruit-forward Bourbon based cocktail, with a subtle dried orange zest like finish. One I could drink all year round”.

Endeavour Tap Rooms

THE DRINK:
Berry Berry Spritz

Berry Berry Amaro, Palloncino Prosecco, soda, lemon wedge 

Situated in the heart of The Rocks, Endeavour Tap Rooms is a premium brew & smokehouse, however don’t let this steer you away from the cocktail menu. An exciting new drinks list has recently been launched and boasts the perfect Summer spritz that gives Aperol a run for its money! We call it the ‘Berry Berry Spritz’ and you may say it’s berry berry good!

Lachy’s lovin’ it because…
“this spritz based cocktail utilises our upcoming collaboration Amaro with Adelaide Hills Distillery. It’s more so on the Aperol-esque spectrum of Amaros, but more ‘berry fruit forward’ including fresh berry juice and strawberry gum. Mixed with a local dry Prosecco, a dash of soda and a fresh squeeze of lemon- it screams Sunday summer drinking!”

SoCal Neutral Bay

THE DRINK:
Chairman’s Home Brew

Chairman’s Reserve Spiced Rum, Yellow Chartreuse, pineapple tepache, citrus 

Soak up Southern Californian Beach vibes with a cocktail in hand on the rooftop terrace at SoCal. Whilst it’s been said that SoCal shakes the best Margaritas in the north, we’re also a big fan of the ‘Chairman’s Home Brew’!

Lachy’s lovin’ it because…
“spiced rum & tepache (fermented pineapple beverage) is a serious match. Throw in some citrus and subtle herbal notes (thanks to Chartreuse) and you’ve got yourself one delicious drink!”
