Cocktail Experiment – Martini Madness

It would have been hard to go past Hinky Dinks for this month’s Cocktail Experiment considering that the theme was Martini Madness. Hinky Dinks is after all harking from an era where the home cocktail party raged and a cocktail was more than a drink – it was a fashion accessory. The Martini raged supreme.

Funnily enough, this is always one of the more challenging experiments we run through Bartender magazine. Twisting and ‘moderning-up’ this timeless classic can be tough and often it’s the simple touches that work best. As usual we ran through the line-up of spirits and brainstormed ideas on how best to tackle the cocktails before hitting the mixing glass.

Hinky Dinks – Time for a trip in the Delorean

Got a time machine? Me neither, but don’t let that stop you heading back to the post-war cocktail period by visiting Hinky Dinks, Sydney’s latest take on trendy tippling. Embodying the cocktail culture of the 1950s, when then a well stirred Cobbler was an essential accessory one’s image and a cocktail ‘hour’ wasn’t dependant on keeping an eye on the clock, Hinky Dinks is setting a new trend in ‘old fashioned’.

Dan Knight (ex Cut Bar & Grill, & The Corner House) and Jeremy Shipley (ex Longrain & current Bacardi Brand Ambassador) have launched their much anticipated bar – Hinky Dinks.

The Original Bacardi Daiquiri

With the Original Bacardi Daiquiri being the Official Cocktail of Sydney BarShow Week we thought it was only fitting that we feature this delicious classic in the months leading up to the show. So without further ado here is the story of the Daíqurí.
