Pony Dining set to reveal Brisbane’s best Cocktail Bartender

Pony Dining set to reveal Brisbane’s best Cocktail Bartender

| On 17, Nov 2013

There aren’t many of us who would pass up a decent cocktail, am I right?

What about the best cocktail in Brisbane?

You don’t even have to answer that because I already know the answer.

Yes, I am right. And yes. Yes, we do all want a sip of the best cocktail in town.

Sunday, Pony Dining at Eagle Street Pier holds round two of their competition to reveal Brisbane’s best Cocktail Bartender.

The competition sees nine of the city’s best cocktail creators from some of the hottest bars in town fight, or rather shake and pour it out, for the title of Brisbane’s best and a bonus $2000 cash prize.

To get you all up to speed, the first round was held last Sunday and the competition is currently being led by Glenn Morgan from Jungle, with Perryn Collier from Papa Jacks in second place.

In third spot is Nico Colic from The Laneway with Pony Dining’s own Cameron Pirret just behind in fourth.

In fifth place we have Chris Denman from Fourth Wall, in front of Nick Royds from The Walrus Club, followed by Keaton Loxley from Elixir, Matt Portillo from Alfred & Constance and Tony Falkner from Sabotage Central.

Their first round entailed a set ingredient list of Vodka, Gin and Wine while this Sunday will see them create three cocktails from Rum, Bourbon and Coffee.

The final shake off will take place next Sunday, November 24 with each bartender required to create a liquid masterpiece from Sparkling Wine, before offering their own signature cocktail.

If the words ‘best cocktail’ weren’t enough to get you to Pony Dining this Sunday, then maybe the every so special price of the ever so punchy, Pony Punch will get your weekend planners out.

The famous house punch of Pony Dining is arguably the perfect summer refreshment – Vodka, Crème de Mure, Apple, Lemon Juice and Lemonade served tall. Usually $18, however on these Sundays, the Pony Punch is just $10.

Maybe it’s just me. But I feel as though all this ‘best cocktail’ talk and discounted punch is coming at the perfect time of the year. Uni exams are done and dusted, or just around the corner from being done and dusted. And we all deserve a delicious cocktail. Or two.
