Mingle amongst loved ones this season while making a toast to all things scary.
Uva Wine & Cocktail Bar
The bar team pay homage to their love of all things spooky by creating cocktails based on their personal favourite Halloween classics. They selected a title and had their takes on replicating the vibes from each into exciting cocktails that entice guests to try them all. Offered exclusively from Sunday, October 24th to Sunday, October 31st, in addition to Uva’s regular impressive wine and cocktail list, the bar team is offering these creepy creations.
The Carrie White by lead bartender Shyann Gilmour ($15) is brewed together with tanqueray, dry curacao, grapefruit juice, lemon juice and egg whites. This cocktail takes inspiration from Stephen King’s ‘Carrie’ and is to be enjoyed by fans and general cocktail lovers alike.
Georgie’s Nightmare by bar manager Stephen Sherry ($17) will remind guests of their clownish fears. Crafted with glenfiddish 15 year, solerno liqueur, spiced and syrah infused lillet, pink grapefruit juice, lemon juice, orange bitters, egg whites and maraschino cherries, this frightful creation is inspired by Stephen King’s ‘It’. Don’t forget your yellow rain jacket.
Frankenstein’s Creation by bartender Noah Abramson ($16) brings back the ultimate classic Halloween vibes and is made with tanqueray, green chartreuse, egg whites, lime juice, simple syrup, fernet gancia and absinthe. This wonderfully chilling creation takes inspiration from the one and only ‘Frankenstein’ written by Mary Shelley.
Bacon Bourbon Barber by the entire bar team ($15) will delight fans as they marvel in the unique combination of bacon fat washed bourbon, lemon, walter mix, worcestershire sauce, tabasco, pickle juice, celery bitters and whisky barrel bitters. This haunting twist on a classic caesar is an inspiration of Tim Burton’s ‘Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street’.
Ancora Waterfront Dining and Patio – Ambleside
As a special one night only cocktail feature, Ancora Ambleside shakes up ‘eye catching’ cocktail featuring just that – a spooky eyeball of a green creature – a Creature of the Night ($18). Created by lead bartener Katie Slacks, this cocktail is made with casamigos mescal, cazadores tequila, choya umeshu plum liqeur, ginger honey syrup, lemon and pineapple star anise bitters.
