Working fast isn’t about working hard, it’s about working smart. The craft cocktail renaissance has brought us many fine things: old, forgotten recipes, timeless drinks, a renewed sense of professionalism behind the bar.

Understandably, some of the reactions are quite amusing.
Here’s a charitable idea we can get behind: head to new Melbourne bar, Shebeen, buy a beer like Tusker (which is from Kenya) and see the profits from the sale of said beer go to help Kenyan farmers get access to tools, education and insurance so that they can get out of hunger.

The search for Australia’s best G&T is kicking off this month! Schweppes wants bartenders to take the classic G&T and add 1 part creativity, 1 part presentation and 1 part story, to make something not quite old and not quite new, but really quite incredible: Australia’s best G&T.
