To cure self-isolation blues, Simply Cocktails have launched Home Five O'Clock-tails video tutorials and virtual mini masterclass on their Facebook Page, so cocktail lovers can shake and stir their favourite tipple in the comfort and safety of their own home.
Get your mates together for Simply Cocktails' Facebook Live cocktail mini masterclasses, taking place every Tuesday and Thursday until 30 June.
For those looking to take the team virtual drinks to a whole other level, jump on the House Party app to the team while you all stream the mini masterclass on Facebook from your computers, allowing you can see how your colleagues' cocktail making skills fare with hot tips from some of Australia's leading mixologists.
In addition to the live mini masterclasses, the team behind Simply Cocktails will recruit 100 Australian bartenders from around the country, that are currently out of work due to the current lockdown restrictions, to submit their cocktail tutorial videos. That’s one cocktail per weekday for 100 days! So whether your missing the famous Remy Martin VSOP at Bar Lafayette by Nathan Arias or the Ginger 43 by Murray Walsh at Mechanics Institute, it's time to ensure your liquor cabinet is well-stocked with a diverse selection of premium spirits from Cointreau to The Botanist Gin, or Sierra Tequila to The Macallan Whisky.
With the devastating impact of COVID-19 on the hospitality industry closing bars across the nation and leading to 689,800 people already out of work and no doubt many more to lose their jobs, the team behind the Simply Cocktails Facebook Page has stepped in to offer a helping hand to some of our local bartenders who have recently lost their jobs with a new virtual cocktail workshop initiative.
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.
