Tap in to alcohol-free cocktails at Rockpool Dining Group

Tuesday, 2 July 2019: Sydneysiders who are going dry this July, as part of the annual, national fundraising initiative, can replace alcohol-based drinks with a stream of virgin cocktails at Rockpool Dining Group restaurants.

Rockpool Dining Group Beverage Director Ali Toghani said the nation’s month-long fundraising drive to improve the comfort and wellbeing of people affected with cancer, provided an opportunity for participants to explore alcohol-free options that are designed with the same level of creativity and craftmanship.

“Coming up with a non-alcoholic drink is as creative as coming up with a cocktail and the result can be just as enjoyable,” Mr Toghani said. “There is no reason to miss out on flavour, or the feeling of drinking something special, whatever your reason for abstaining from alcohol.”

Rockpool Dining Group restaurants feature an evolving line-up of mocktails throughout the year.

The Cut Bar & Grill offers a trio of mocktails (all $14), including Strawberry Sunset – a fresh, fruity and delicious, non-alcoholic mojito featuring strawberries, raspberry syrup, cranberry juice and mint.

Tequila pit-stop Bar Patrón heroes five virgin cocktails, including Café Frio ($13), which combines cold-drip coffee, house-made horchata, coconut and walnut bitters.

At Spice Temple there are eight mocktails to choose from (all $12), including a Granny Smith apple and jasmine soda, a virgin Bloody Mary featuring tomato, capsicum, spice mix and lemon, and a floral fusion of lemongrass, chrysanthemum and rosewater.

Rockpool Bar & Grill Sydney has three non-alcoholic cocktails ($13-$16), including the fruity and fragrant tiki punch ($16), showcasing Seedlip Splice, which is shaken with orange and cinnamon shrub, fresh pineapple and lime juices and topped with a splash of organic ginger ale.

Each Saké Restaurant & Bar has refreshing mocktails on the menu, including the Okinawa Surf ($12) at Saké Manly, combining passionfruit, pineapple, house-made tiki syrup and dry ginger ale.

At Saké The Rocks, Summer Breeze ($14) comprises aloe vera, fresh strawberries and lime juice, while Saké Double Bay has a quartet of non-alcoholic cocktails available, including Tokyo la Havana ($14) which blends fresh ginger, mint, lime and apple juice, topped with soda.

Fratelli Fresh has a variety of fruity concoctions to choose from (each $11), including Berry Breeze – a blend of aloe vera, lime juice and strawberry; Lychee Bella, featuring apple, vanilla and lychee; and Cranberry Blossom, a mix of cranberry, lime, passionfruit, vanilla and strawberry.

Rockpool Dining Group has a workplace team participating in Dry July. The team is called Rockpool’s Fish Out of Water. Find their fundraising page here.
