Virtual Cocktail Masterclasses with Simply Cocktails

Occurs every week on Tuesday & Friday

To cure self-isolation blues, Simply Cocktails will this Friday launch their first Home Five O’Clock-tails video tutorials and virtual mini masterclass on their Facebook Page, so cocktail lovers can shake and stir their favourite tipple in the comfort and safety of their own home.

 

Get your mates together for the first of Simply Cocktails’ Facebook Live cocktail mini masterclass this Friday (3rd April) at 5pm AEST with Australia’s Scotch Whisky Brand Ambassador of the Year (2019), Mark Hickey teaching you how to create a Cointreau Fizz. For those looking to take the team virtual drinks to a whole other level, jump on the House Party app to the team while you all stream the mini masterclass on Facebook from your computers, allowing you can see how your colleagues’ cocktail making skills fare with hot tips from some of Australia’s leading mixologists.

 

This series of live mini masterclasses will take place every Tuesday and Friday until the 30th of June. So for those, like many of us, enjoying a cheeky weekday drink, next Tuesday night (7th April), Danilo Migliorini, mixology maven from Eau De Vie Sydney, will teach you how to shake up the ultimate Tia Maria Espresso ‘Quarantini’.

 

Luke Hanzlieick will teach you how to make a Chartreuse Green Chaud - a soothing winter warmer drink for those cool autumn nights. Andy Buntine, former manager at Katuk in Melbourne will showcase the incredibly decadent Mozart Choc-tails (Thursday 9th April) for those looking to really treat themselves.

 

Followed by a ‘Tom Collins’ workshop by ambassador Josh O’Brien on Tuesday 14th April featuring The Botanist Gin, the perfect 5pm drink for after work.

 

In addition to the live mini masterclasses, the team behind Simply Cocktails will recruit 100 Australian bartenders from around the country, that are currently out of work due to the current lockdown restrictions, to submit their cocktail tutorial videos. That’s one cocktail per weekday for 100 days! So whether your missing the famous whiskey cocktails at Cobbler Bar by Leroy Oscar or signature cocktails from the mixology master Aaron Clark at Blackbird, it’s time to ensure your liquor cabinet is well-stocked with a diverse selection of premium spirits from Cointreau to The Botanist Gin, or Sierra Tequila to The Macallan Whisky.

 

With the devastating impact of COVID-19 on the hospitality industry closing bars across the nation and leading to 689,800 people already out of work and no doubt many more to lose their jobs, the team behind the Simply Cocktails Facebook Page has stepped in to offer a helping hand to some of our local bartenders who have recently lost their jobs with a new virtual cocktail workshop initiative.

 

All ingredients for the Simply Cocktails Home Five O’Clock-tails are available instore and online from Dan Murphy’s, BWS, Liquorland, online retailers, Boozebud, HelloDrinks and hundreds of independent liquor retailers.
