What a great couple of weeks for Australian bartenders!
First, Daniel Gregory took out the Bols Global Cocktail Masters, and possession of perhaps the world’s most tropical trophy with his Highway 75.
The Highway 75
50ml Bols Genever
20ml Bols White Creme de Cacao
15ml Passionfruit Juice
10ml Fee Brother Grenadine
4 drops Orange Blossom Water infused with dried Lavender
Add all ingredients to a vintage cocktail shaker and shake hard. Strain into a chilled coupette. Garnish with a lemon twist and vanilla macaroon on the side.
Next, Andy Griffiths took out the Angostura Trophy in Trinidad. (that’s him on the left)
Rumour has it he got one of the girls out of her bikini and is now wearing it himself, partying down Carnival style in Trinidad.
A truly great result for the land of Oz and hopefully a precursor to more global wins.
