Fever-Tree Tonic & Gin Garden
A bunch of G&T gardens are popping up at pubs and bars around Melbourne this summer.
This summer, you'll have another excuse to enjoy a G&T as a heap of gin and tonic gardens pop up across the country. Settling into the outside areas at pubs and bars in Melbourne, the gardens will feature plenty of gin and tonic (obviously), as well as DIY garnish stations.
The idea is that you can learn more about different botanicals, then mix, match and experiment to find your ideal G&T combination. That sounds like a task that we'd all gladly accept; however there'll be tonic pairing menus on hand should you need some pointers.
At the time of writing, Melburnians can scratch their G&T itch at Ciao Cucina in Port Melbourne, as well as Richmond Social, the Notting Hill Hotel and the Lower Plenty Hotel in their respective suburbs. More locations will pop up across the country over the summer, with a handy interactive map tracking new venues.
The gardens are the work of Fever-Tree, so the company's tonics will be splashing in your glass. They'll be setting up shop not only in Melbourne, but Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra, Cairns, and the Gold and Sunshine coasts, too — so whether you're eager for a drink close to home or you'll be holidaying in a sunny spot, cocktails laden with juniper spirits await.
