From the shaken to the stirred and everything in-between — this May, the country's world-class mixology scene will be celebrated in a very big way at a month-long drinks festival. The inaugural Australian Cocktail Month is set to kick off Sunday, May 1, descending on venues across a heap of Aussie cities with a diverse lineup of crafty collaborations and exclusive concoctions.

In total, 145 bars are taking part in Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Darwin, Geelong, Gold Coast, Hobart, Newcastle, Perth, Sydney and Wollongong — and in Melbourne, of course. Here in the Victorian capital, 24 spots will help Australian Cocktail Month celebrate its second year. And, both boozy and alcohol-free cocktails will be on the menu.

Wondering where you'll be heading? Hit up local favourites such as Bomba, Bar MargauxNick & Nora's, The Everleigh, Black Pearl and Lover, for starters. Along with the other venues taking part, they'll spend the month whipping up creative-charged festival cocktails (and mocktails) using drops from both local brands — think: Brix Distillers, Four Pillars and Archie Rose — and international labels.

To get among the best of it, grab a $20 Australian Cocktail Month ticket and enjoy full access to all of the participating venues' cocktail creations. Alcoholic drinks will be priced at $14 a pop, with low-alcohol and booze-free options clocking in at $10.
