Wine-based cocktails turning heads

Hunter Valley winemakers may have raised their eyebrows when local bar manager Jamie Walker(below right) began using their wines in his cocktails, but he says the concept is taking off.

Walker, of Goldfish Hunter Valley, told TheShout the idea of wine-based cocktails came from his experience bartending in fine dining restaurants with cocktail bars attached in his native home of Scotland.

He said he’s lucky to be friendly with lots of local winemakers who drink at the bar, and have been very helpful in giving him their ideas on what they think he should do.

“And sometimes what they think I should try and avoid!”

Walker told TheShout that a few of the Hunter’s “old guard” were at first sceptical of the concept, but many have since come round to the idea.

He said they understand the value of putting younger drinkers, or people who wouldn’t normally drink wine, onto Hunter wines.

Darkwood Sling
SERVE IN A:Cocktail glass

There are many good cherry liqueurs you can use, but I prefer Heering. Add one share of the liqueur. Then you add one share of Soda. For a sour sling use Tonic (most people prefer the drink without Tonic). Afterwards you fill the glass with Orange Juice and ice cubes.

Heering on the Examiner again!

Finale at the W

Gabriel Orta of Bar Lab brought the night home with two beautiful drinks. Featuring pomegranate molasses and cucumber puree, the W Essential offered a sophisticated, Middle Eastern take on the beaten-to-death Long Island Ice Tea. Balancing spice and sweet citrus, the Hot Mess incorporated lime, Heering Cherry Liqueur, Sriracha pepper and passionfruit. Swept clean by a citrus finish, the spice worked to maximize refreshment not to start a fire in your mouth. If you have shied away from the new breed of spicy cocktails, this drink is the perfect introduction…
