  • Bar Toto

    Ettalong, Central Coast, New South Wales

    “Bar Toto in Ettalong Beach does one of my all-time favourite cocktails; the Pornstar 2.0. Not only is the name great, but its lemony and passionfruit twist creates a sweet and sour combo that is perfect summer drinking.”

  • Da Orazio

    Bondi Beach, Sydney, New South Wales

    “Anything from the impressive cocktail list at Da Orazio in Bondi Beach is incredible, but if I had to choose, my pick would have to be Cloudy Bay. It’s refreshing and summery, but still a bit cosy.”

  • Smoke Bar at Barangaroo House

    Barangaroo, Sydney, New South Wales

    “Smoke Bar in Barangaroo just oozes summer and holiday vibes. Enjoy a tangy Livin’ is Easy cocktail in one hand and watch the night spill over the harbour on a balmy summer's day.”

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    Paddington, Sydney, New South Wales

    “It’s tequila time! Get summer-ready while sipping (maybe chugging) on the summeriest drink of all time. Nobody does it better than Tequila Mockingbird in Surry Hills. The Latin American restaurant’s take on a margarita – named after the venue itself – is essential summer drinking.”

  • Re -

    Eveleigh, Sydney, New South Wales

    “Get ready to have your mind blown at Re -, the bar that revolutionised the way we sip and savor. Re - is not your typical bar – the ingredients used in their food and cocktails are sourced and recycled ethically. One of my personal fav’s is the Harris Farm, a unique twist on the classic Espresso Martini.”

  • Watsons Bay Hotel Beach Club

    Watsons Bay, Sydney, New South Wales

    “Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel screams ‘summer holidays’ for me. After a swim at the beach, head next door and sip on refreshing Spritz while basking in the warm sun. That’s summer perfection.”
