Because we've all been so good this year, the Melbourne Gin Company are partnering with Patricia Coffee Brewers to bring us a pop-up aperitivo bar, serving only gin and tonic concoctions. Every Friday until February 23, the MGC Summer bar will be open at Patricia from 5pm-8pm – a perfect window for wind-down drinks after a busy week at work.
They'll be offering a range of four gin tipples on a rotating menu featuring mixers and syrups by local producers. They've also collaborated with Patricia to create the cold drip G&T, which we're particularly intrigued by.
The point (not that a G&T pop-up really needs to justify its existence) is to teach gin lovers about the importance of garnish and tonic on the profile of your G&T. You can work out your perfect gin combo and, armed with this knowledge, never order a bad beverage again. Drinks are priced at $10 across the board.
