Summer spritzes might be behind us, but we’re not done with the season’s berry-driven drinks just yet. To that end, we’ve partnered with one of Melbourne’s best cocktail bars Black Pearl and Ketel One Vodka for a limited-time cocktail collaboration. And you can order it to your home.
Black Pearl is running a Cocktails on the Couch service, delivering batches of cocktails available in serves of two or five, with accompanying garnishes and directions.
One of these delivery drinks is the Hand in Hand. The new cocktail matches crisp Ketel One Vodka with the citrus-splashed German vermouth Belsazar Rosé and the batch-made sweet syrup strawberry oleo, topped off with whey and carbonated water. The pink grapefruit, raspberry, redcurrant and orange blossom notes of the vermouth, blended with hints of fresh strawberry, make for a layered but delicate drink reminiscent of autumnal forest berries.
Black Pearl is a Brunswick Street institution, having received international recognition – it’s been a frequent entrant in Diageo’s World Class Bartender of the Year Awards. The Hand in Hand is available until end of May.
