Amongst all the glitter, feathers and false lashes set to cover Sydney for 2020 Mardi Gras celebrations, you will find an absolutely-fabulous array of rainbow cocktails to kick-start your night.
Sydney, get ready to taste the rainbow this Mardi Gras 2020 thanks to Barangaroo’s favourite Australian-infused Bavarian restaurant, Beerhaüs. This Mardi Gras 2020, Beerhaüs will be serving up an Australian-confectionary-favourite, the Skittle Bomb. That’s right. Vodka, lemonade and skittles of your choice. So what’s your flavour? Ours is, of course, the best skittle, purple.
Bel & Brio
You can dance and you can jive, but tell us, can you even enjoy your Mardi Gras this year without a visit to Bel & Brio – Barangaroo’s favourite authentic Italian restaurant? This year to help you shimmy your way through Mardi Gras festivities Bel & Brio have shaken up the Dancing Queen that’s tippled with white rum, Licor 43, fresh lemon juice, pineapple juice, grenadine, blue curacao and egg white foam. Blue in colour, this concoction is best served with Bel & Brio’s Spaghetti Prawns ($30) and Rustic Potato Chips with shaved black truffle ($14).
