To mark the anniversary of the first train that left the Sandridge line, Arbory Bar & Eatery is launching its new cocktail list, just in time for Melbournians to take advantage of the improving weather!

The much loved caffeinated cocktail is made with Ketel One vodka, Kahlua, sugar and cold drip organic Arabica espresso from South Yarra outfit Little Drippa.  Alongside the Espresso Martini, a second tap will pour a London Plane Collins; a gin based botanical drink with mint, basil, lemon verbena and soda water.

The new cocktail list includes the delicious Yarra Sailor – Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum and Zubrowka Bison Grass Vodka with freshly juiced green apple, lemon and a dash of honey, The Tommy’s Watermelon Margarita – Don Julio Blanco Tequila, Agave, Watermelon, Lime Juice, Coriander and a touch of Jalapeño, Lady Hotham – Hayman’s Sloe Gin shaken with Chambord Raspberry Liqueur, Lemon Juice, egg white foam, topped with Chandon and Barrel Aged Negroni – Tanqueray London Dry Gin, Campari, Carpano Antica Formula aged on site in spiced oak barrels and stirred over ice with Fresh Orange.

Opening in March this year, Arbory is a lively all-day outdoor bar and eatery that sits amongst the line of iconic plane trees between Platform 11 at Flinders Street Station and the Yarra River. It will definitely be the place to spend sunny afternoons this Spring and Summer!
