Friday is almost here here. And it’s Spring in Australia. And together that’s just one exciting combination. And nothing screams ‘Friday drink in Spring’ like a fizzy cocktail based on gin (it’s refreshing in the heat you see). And particularly when it’s topped with flowers…
And thanks to the clever folks behind Australia’s latest rooftop offering, The Rooftop Garden Bar, that’s nestled atop Brisbane’s iconic Stock Exchange Hotel, we’ve got just the recipe.
Enter their pear and elderflower gin fizz. It’s a sweet yet sour, refreshing mix, that’s perfect to make up when the week’s at an end, and the weather a little balmy.
- 30ML TANQUERAY GIN
- 15ML ST GERMAINE ELDERFLOWER
- 15ML FRESH PRESSED LEMON JUICE
- 20ML FRESH PRESSED PEAR JUICE
- Combine all ingredients, a few cubes of ice and shake vigorously.
- Double strain ingredients into a tall glass filled with ice.
- Top with soda water and garnish with edible flowers.
Located above Brisbane’s iconic Stock Exchange Hotel, the newly opened Rooftop Garden Bar is a hidden oasis filled with flower baskets, lush greenery and festoon lighting. You’ll find the offering centred on an impressive cocktail bar serving up ones based on fresh pressed juices and boutique ingredients – mixed, shaken or stirred into your cocktail of choice.
