Shaken, stirred, with olives, without — they're just some of the ways that you can enjoy a martini. It's an adaptable tipple, and there's no need to be as stringent with it as 007. You can also sip the flavoured variety, mixing vodka with mango or passionfruit, which is exactly what's on the menu at The Defiant Duck each Saturday. Pay $35, take your pick or alternate between options, and then keep drinking them for two hours.
Yes, the Newstead venue is giving Bond's favourite beverage the same treatment is also gives spritzes and margaritas, so arrive thirsty. You'll also receive a couple of sliders to help line your stomach, with vegan and vegetarian options available.
And if $35 Martini Saturdays needed an extra attraction, live music is also on the agenda — because every drinks session needs a soundtrack.
The event runs weekly from 4–6pm, and bookings are recommended.
