Just in time for the festive season, CENTREPIECE at Melbourne Park has unveiled its brand-new summertime cocktail menu, which brings Victoria’s best artisan distillers together with fresh ingredients from the venue’s onsite kitchen garden.
The exclusive menu carries through the venue’s Victoria-first focus, showcasing local liquors from alcohol stalwarts Melbourne Gin Company, Grainshaker and Starward.
With a refreshing twist on classic favourites, menu highlights include the Melbourne Martini made with Grainshaker Corn Vodka, Little Drippa Double and Simple Syrup, and the Port Star Sour – a red-currant liqueur paired with Starward Two-Fold Whiskey from Port Melbourne.
Melbourne & Olympic Parks head of food and beverage, Rachel Dolan, said the menu is inspired by the Victorian summer.
“Cocktails are a summer staple for so many and we wanted to create a new bespoke drinks menu synonymous with our Victorian location. The playful drink names pay homage to the festive season and celebrate summer in our state, raising a glass to all the things that make Melbourne magic,” Dolan said.
“Partnering with brands like Starward and Grainshaker to bring these to life was important, as we’re focused on collaborating with brands who have a rich local heritage and allow us to offer up uniquely local event experiences that embody all the things that make Victoria great.”
