Matching Martinis take centre-stage at Emporium Hotel

His & Her (or Her & Her, or His & His) Cocktails to welcome Spring

 

It’s the season of love at the award-winning Emporium Hotel Cocktail Bar with Matching Martinis taking centre-stage! Selected and tweaked from the recently launch new cocktail menu, the Matching Martinis are the perfect his and hers, or hers and hers, or his and his, cocktail to sit and sip and welcome Spring!  Each martini features very distinct flavours, with the bar team adding smoked rosemary and olive to one and a fruit flavour combination to the other.

 

Smoked Rosemary & Olive Martini

Introduced as Mr. Martini, this cocktail is suitable for any sir or lady who enjoys the smooth and sophisticated flavours of Gin Mare, Noilly Pratt Dry Vermouth, Olive and smoked Rosemary.

 

Queen of Hearts Martini

Originally introduced as Mrs. Martini, this red and vibrant liquid will fire up anyone whether you’re a stylish Miss. or a fun Master. It features Absolut Vodka, Massenez Fraise de Bois, Licor 43, Passionfruit, vibrant Berry Compote and Rhubarb Bitters.

 

Herbs for the cocktail are grown on the hotel rooftop, and honey is lovingly created by the bees which also call the rooftop home. Having recently been inducted into the Queensland Tourism Awards Hall of Fame and with a mantlepiece straining from the myriad awards, the Cocktail Bar is the perfect place to welcome Spring.
