Check out what your local bartenders in Auckland and Wellington are doing for World Bartender Day!
World Bartender Day at The Good Luck Coconut
The Good Luck Coconut
The offer that we are putting up is $15 cocktail until the 24th.
Zero Waste Menu & Farewell Party
To promote my Blend cocktail we are doing a 'Zero Waste' menu at work. The menu will feature mine and Jack's Blend Cocktails as well as two additional drinks that aim to reduce waste in the bar and get the most out of oranges and other fruits used for garnishes. I've attached a copy of this menu. On Sunday the 24th of February, Hawthorn Lounge will be hosting a farewell party for all the Wellington Beam finalists. All three of the Wellington finalist’s cocktails will be featured on a standalone menu as well as a selection of drink offers from the Beam Suntory portfolio. The event will give the Wellington community a chance to celebrate with the finalist’s before they head up to Auckland to compete.
Farewell Party and more...

As well as having my cocktail on the menu in the bar I have spoken to another bar (Cuckoo Cocktail Emporium) and they will be hosting my cocktail from the 10th - 24th February.

Lastly on the Sunday before we fly up to Auckland for the finals, Hawthorn are hosting a Perfect Blend Farwell party, which will also be including my cocktail.
