When the weather starts to get warmer, we want to make the most of the sunshine, springtime air and budding blooms. We ditch the heavy reds that saw us through winter in favour of lighter, more effervescent tipples. And a spritz is an Aussie go-to this time of year. So, this spring we've teamed up with Hendrick's Gin to make sure you get one, plus some other perks thrown in.

For the month of October, Hendrick's Gin has teamed up with Paddo Inn to celebrate its limited-edition Midsummer Solstice gin. The venue — renamed Paddo Ginn throughout October — has transformed into a floral paradise, courtesy of local flower artist Dr Lisa Cooper. So, to celebrate the release of Hendrick's latest gin, plus the Paddo Inn's new spring-inspired digs, we're giving away two tickets to its upcoming 'Female Artisans' Inn Talks event on Tuesday, October 29. Better yet? On the bill is the very woman behind the pub's flowery, whimsical makeover.

The first artist in residence at Carriageworks, Dr Lisa Cooper is a florist, author and Doctor of Philosophy — so expect this talk to be as thought-provoking as its setting is pretty. Cult homewares label Maison Balzac's Elise Pioch Balzac and Carla Daunton of Young Henrys will join Cooper in a panel discussion on their craft, passion and trade. Plus, the Q&A will be hosted by fashion journalist Rosie Dalton.

Usually $55 a ticket, Inn Talks in the past have sold out most times. So, should you win, you're getting your hands on a serious steal. Plus, you and your date (or mate) will be treated to a Midsummer Solstice Spritz — a delightful concoction featuring the limited-edition spirit, tonic water and sparkling wine, garnished with orange and cucumber — and get a snack when you arrive, too.

If you're keen to get your mitts on this one-of-a-kind prize — which obviously you are — enter your details below to be in the running.
