Summer is just around the corner, which means longer days, warmer weather and outdoor get togethers. To get yourself ready for a summer of great chills with your mates, we have put together a list of the best season sippers around town. So gather a group of pals and organise a session at one of our five favourites!

What could be better than an icy pole on a hot summer day? Well, an alcohol-infused one! At Hopscotch in Braddon the guys on the bar have created Popscotch Poptails for the ultimate summer beverage! The alcoholic popsicles come in three flavours: orange and mango; gin and tonic; and fruit punch, topped with Moscato wine for an extra burst of freshness.


Summer Cocktail Tasting Menu at Hotel Kurrajong

Have you yet to decide on your signature summer cocktail? Hotel Kurrajong is here to help you discover your order of choice this season with its summer cocktail tasting menu. This experience will commence Monday 12 December and will only run for a limited time. The venue is tight lipped about the line-up of cocktails to be expected, however we can reveal that the signature cocktail will be the Tanquery Spritz.


Suits & Sips at The Loft

Knock off work and head up to The Loft for $10 cocktails every Thursday from 5:00pm. The Loft is serving up summer classics and a little something extra with Vanilla Espresso Martinis, Coconut Mango Martinis and Fireball Sours all on the bar.


Cool Hand Luke at Urban Pantry

Nothing says summer like outdoor dining and no one does alfresco like Urban Pantry in Manuka. Pair the warm summer breeze with a refreshing Cool Hand Luke. Mixing Hendricks gin, lychee liqueur, cucumber, mint, pink peppercorns and cloudy apple juice, this concoction is the perfect summer sipper to accompany afternoons hangs with friends.


43 Crush at Betti Bravo’s

With the new addition of turf out the front of the venue, Betti Bravo’s is well and truly ready for the summer months. Immerse yourself into the foreshore summer experience at Betti’s with a 43 Crush in hand. This concoction combines Liquor 43, vodka, lime, strawberries and basil to create an amazing summer sip!
