We’re looking out the window on this chilly morning and the sky is grey, and the temperature is cold. That doesn’t mean we’re giving up on the spirit of summer though!
Luckily, we’ll soon be able to get our hands on some juicy, fizzy and very fun cocktails that evoke the summer sunshine – without having to reveal just how lacking our mixology skills are.
Originally available as cocktails on tap at some of Perth’s most popular venues and festivals (including The Beaufort, The Leederville Hotel, Fringe World, Froth Town and Factory Summer), Idle Hands Drinks Co. is making its way onto bottle shop shelves (and into our fridges).
Flavours available from May 4 will include the Juicy Bambini Spritz, a berry-infused twist on the bittersweet favourite, a floral and refreshing Watermelon Collins, a Pina Colada topped with the delightful fizz of sparkling wine, a zesty Margarita Fizz and the White Chocolate Pornstar Martini, which combines the zippiness of passionfruit with silky white chocolate.
Each flavour has been crafted with locally-sourced ingredients, and a strict no heat treatment rule – keeping the flavours as big and bold as you’d expect over the bar.
Celebrate all those delicious cocktails in your future with Idle Hands’ big launch weekend. Running from May 4 to 8, the festivities include a pizza party at Bayswater’s King Somm, a Sunday lawn bowls sesh at the brand new Mane Liquor in Osborne Park including a collab with Goods Bakery, as well as tastings at boutique bottle shops Commune Wine Store and Old Bridge Cellars.
