Cock(tail) fighting in the inner west!
Everyone’s a winner at The Toast of Newtown local cocktail competition has the bars of Newtown fighting for glory in the Sydney Fringe.
- Voting open until 17 September 2012 at www.sydneyfringe.com/toast-of-newtown
- Friday 28 September from 7pm at Five Eliza (the Sydney Fringe festival bar), finalists will enter the cocktail challenge.
Local inner west bars, pubs and restaurants from Newtown, Enmore and Erskineville responded to the festival’s challenge to “capture Newtown in a glass”: to create a new cocktail that says it all about Sydney’s liveliest strip – in the best (and tastiest) way possible!
Only one entry from each venue was allowed and each of them responded with the most mouth-watering recipes.
The public can vote on-line until 17 September at www.sydneyfringe.com/toast-of-newtown for their favourite cocktail and, of course, head to the heart of the Fringe to taste them first-hand.
On that night a panel of media, cocktail experts and a celebrity local personality will make the final choice based on taste, presentation and how well the drink has captured Newtown in a glass!
Venues include Kuki Tanuki, The Rose of Australia and Delhi o Dehli in Erskineville, the Bench Wine Bar and Bloodwood in South King Street, the Bank Hotel, Coopers Hotel, Madam Fling Flong, Black Sheep, The Wine Plate, Rubyos, Al Aseel and the Vanguard in North King Street and The Green Room, Hartsyard and Waterhorse Wine Bar in Enmore.
The magnificent concoctions include “Rosemary’s Baby”, “The Newtownian Goose Herder Special”, “Newtown Allsorts”, “The Bee’s Sting”, “The Cure” , “Dorothy’s Friend” and “Mayor Fowler” (named for the first female mayor of Newtown) – among many other inviting names… and recipes!
