As the weather picks up in Melbourne, the locals are flocking to favourite hangouts for drinks on a lazy Sunday afternoon, or after work on warm evenings. One particular local and favourite establishment, Trunk Diner, has introduced a new range of cocktails to welcome the summer!
Trunk is located in the CBD and is a bit of an oasis from the bustle of the city. There’s the glam Trunk Restaurant & Bar for those who want to dine, then there’s the more casual Trunk Diner on the side, and right in between is the delightful courtyard where you can catch a few rays of sunshine and enjoy a drink or two.
The five new designer jug cocktails are perfect for summer with light, fresh and fruity flavours. Some are classics with a twist, such as the Pimms Cooler (Pimms, lemonade, mint, cucumber and orange) and Peach Sangria Bianco (Sav Blanc, Grand Manier, Creme Peche, lemon juice and peach puree). The rest are brilliant and cheeky creations such as Get’cha Melons Out (no prizes for guessing what’s the key ingredient in that one!) and my personal favourite, Tropik Thunder (rum and more rum, apple and lime).
I can’t wait for the next sunny afternoon to pop down for a few of these cocktails!
