Bring those senses alive with a range of cocktails inspired by summer scents from Maison 21G! What a better place to do this than Zephyr bar! We’re not suprised that it was awarded best hotel bar in 2018 at the Hotel Management (HM) Awards, and it is certainly one of our favourite bars, for its location at the top of the Sydney Hyatt Regency boasts sweeping views of the Darling Harbour Sydney Skyline. It’s a sophisticated bar that oozes class and it’s the perfect place for an afterwork drink or watching the sunset. NB – perfect date location! Zephyr have recently launched their summer cocktail collection which proves to be a window into what we can expect this summer! A refreshing cocktail to be enjoyed on those hot summer days is what we all want.
At the launch we were impressed to meet Parisienne bespoke scent designer and founder of Maison 21G Johanna Monange. She has collaborated with the team at Zephyr to develop this new cocktail range. We loved hearing her passion for scents, and then demonstrating this in action. A spray of the Eau de Parfum collection followed by a sip of one of the new cocktails certainly gets those senses going.
What a cool concept and if you love a particular scent as much as me, you can purchase the 25ml bottle exclusively at Zephyr for a combined price of $55. My favourite was undoubtedly the VANILLA VENUS which the scent now follows me wherever I go. I enjoyed a ROYAL PASSIONFRUIT MOJITO after smelling this. Served in a tall glass, it was a refreshing, served with passion fruit syrup, purée, freshly squeezed lime, topped up with prosecco.
If you prefer other flavours and scents, here’s what else is on the menu:
ROOFTOP ‘AIR’ – Zephyr Tailored Gin, fresh cucumber and dill, freshly squeezed lime, cane syrup, aquafaba. Served straight up martini style with cucumber and dill.
Paired with MAGNETIC MYRRH – aromatic, crisp and sensual
RASPBERRY SKYLINE – Ketel One vodka, raspberry liqueur, fresh raspberry, pineapple juice, lime juice, cane syrup. Served straight up martini style with fresh raspberry and popping candy rim.
Paired with RASPBERRY REDEMPTION – sweet and fruity
OCEAN BREEZE – Zephyr Tailored Gin, Blue Curaçao, fresh basil leaves, freshly squeezed lime, cane syrup topped up with basil and pomegranate
Paired with SAGE SUPREME – subtle and fresh
Available over the Summer period until Jan 20
There’s also the first store in Australia selling Maison 21G through a boutique in the hotel if you wish to purchase some of the delightful scents.
