With Vivid Sydney kicking off, SouthTrade International have partnered with the most vibrant venues around Sydney to create cocktails with their signature labels, ready for you to embark on a cocktail trail that will showcase the city of lights.
Starting at cosy whisky bar The Doss House, try the Starward enthused “Baked Apple Sour” before moving on to Nola for a Tito’s handmade vodka “Lafayette Highball”. Enjoy the view at Sydney’s rooftop bar Zephyr with the very Instagrammable “Vivid Cocktail” inspired by 78 Degrees Gin infused with lavender. Toddle up Bulletin Place laneway to relish a “Stars in Their Eyes” at Three Bottle Man, sip on the “Vivid Dreams” outdoors at Custom House before wrapping up your delightful (and tipsy!) evening at Grain Bar with their take on an Old Fashioned.
