• Home Five O’Clock-tails - Virtual Mini Masterclasses

Shake up that routine.  It’s Home Five O’Clock-tails time with Simply Cocktails running virtual mini masterclasses. If you’re anything like me, you’ve been learning lots of new things this past fortnight. Whilst re-affirming my life priorities, setting creative challenges and exercising about three hours a day, I am also loving the time to learn new skills.

Cocktail making has never been my foray, but with simply instructions and useful tips from the Australia’s most celebrated, even I can whip up a tipple to enjoy.

The masterclasses are run by mixologists from Melbourne's leading bars (think The Espy, The Blacksmith and Gin Palace) and will be live streamed on Simply Cocktails’ Facebook page every Tuesday and Friday.

Simply Cocktails are also recruiting out-of-work bartenders to submit tutorials, with 100 cocktails over 100 weekdays.

All ingredients for the Simply Cocktails Home Five O’Clock-tails are available in store and online from Dan Murphy’s, BWS, Liquorland, online retailers, Boozebud, HelloDrinks and hundreds of independent liquor retailers.

Check out the full schedule below. What are you most looking forward to trying?
