Let’s face it, most of us won’t be travelling to any exotic international locations any time soon (although if a route between New Zealand and NSW opens up, we’ll take what we can get), so for the time being we need to get creative in order to conjure up that ever-desirable holiday feeling.
Luckily, Soul Bar & Bistro is whisking us away — in spirit — to the Amalfi coast this month, bringing the beauty and vibrance of the iconic Italian destination to the Viaduct with Malfy Coast at Soul.
A collaboration with Italian-owned distillery Malfy Gin, Malfy Coast at Soul is sure to help us all embrace La Dolce Vita with delicious drinks specials. Expect Malfy gin & tonics elevated with inventive infusions, like strawberry, mint and black peppercorns; or oranges, thyme, grapefruit tonic and juniper berries; plus cocktails and limoncello.
Malfy Gin’s offering spans three flavours in addition to its original bottle — con limone, gin rosa (infused with grapefruit) and con arancia, or orange. This only adds to the possibilities for blending the spirit into myriad cocktails.
‘Under the Tuscan Sun’ comprises Malfy con limone, blackberry, raspberry, lemon and mint, finished with bubbles, while the ‘Positano Spritz’ is sure to be a popular choice, a moreish combination of Malfy con arancia, campari, Fever Tree Mediterranean tonic and olives.
The saying goes “when in Rome”, but if we can’t get there then we’d happily head to Soul for a taste of the Amalfi Coast.
