Check out what your local bartenders in NSW are doing for World Bartender Day!
Cocktail Delivery and More...
The Baxter Inn
From the 10th February until the 24th, my cocktail “Ali’s Mark” will be on a menu in addition to our current curated cocktail list. One of the main features of The Baxter Inn style of service is napkins placed down as soon as an order is taken, and so I have had white cocktail napkins printed which feature the hashtag #Alismark, to be placed when the cocktail is served. During the period of the 10th to the 24th, I also will be undertaking a “cocktail delivery service”. Essentially, I will be dropping of a sample of the cocktail (minus perishable ingredients) with instructions on how to make the drink, to bars in the area.
Cocktails and Polaroids
Guests who purchase a serving of ‘Brief Glimpse’ will be given a card with information about the cocktail and a polaroid photograph of themselves with the drink to commemorate that place in time as the "toast" is to the present.
Family Night Out!
In keeping with the theme of the cocktail as a toast to one’s parents, Orion is hosting a Family Night Out! Every group that books an Escape or Karaoke room at Breakout Bar on the 20th of Feb and brings along their parents will receive a complimentary serve of ‘Cat’s in the Cradle’.
In keeping with our Mediterranean vibe, Corretto will be transforming their terrace into a small garden of tranquillity, where one can feel like they woke up on the Santorini Coast, or they are enjoying a summer afternoon at one of many Botanical Gardens in Japan. Take a picture of Hero drink ‘Kazoku” and post on Instagram with the hashtags #wbd2020 #correttodeewhy #tpb2020 to go into the draw to win a gift voucher at Corretto at the end of the promotional period.

Jacob will be providing a donation to the RFS & bushfire relief for every sale of “Bushfire Season”, accompanied with the serving of a small piece of artisanal Australian cheese from affected areas to pair with every drink serving.
During the promotional period from the 10th of February, the “Fanta-stic four” will be available on a World Bartender Day displayed nitro tap at Doorknock. Purchase of the cocktail during the period will put you in the entry for a ticket to a free whisk(e)y masterclass with an entry cocktail and paired cured meats, on 24th February.
Myths and Anecdotes
Every serving of the ‘Guiled Parapple’ Cocktail comes with a velvet bound booklet with 14 illustrated stories about the fun and unusual myths and anecdotes that have followed alcohol throughout history (Fun fact: Cleopatra once dissolved a pearl into a glass of wine to win a bet). Follow the #guildedparapples hashtag to find out more about this cocktail, these stories and toasts to World Bartender Day. Cameron Abercrombie will be doing a short guest bartending shift with Conor on the first Friday of the promotion at Burrow Bar.
