Black-tea ice cubes, sultana swizzle sticks, honeycomb, vodka, gin, rye and more all shaken and stirred and muddled and served for your pleasure - meet the drinks (and their makers) you'll find at the year's biggest cocktail carnival
Few Sydney bars have weathered storms, fashions and flights of fancy the way Longrain has. Spicy, punched-up vodka drinks hold no currency the way they do here, where they make perfect sense pared with chef Martin Boetz's smart Thai menu. For over a decade Longrain have operated in the Commonwealth Street warehouse, resident DJ in the corner spinning beatz, with the bar and restaurant operating side by side. A very recent renovation, however, has seen this Surry Hills stalwart expand into a multi-level haven of spice and good times. And now they're offering food and drink trivia! Every week you have the chance to win prizes, eat a deep-fried duck leg and sip on a Camp Bitch. Yes!
