Cocktail Hour Lifestyle with the Martini Whisperer 6.30pm to 8.00pm

The Martini is the most iconic of cocktails, instantly recognisable and evocative. Like modernist design, it’s elements are simple but expressive of time and place. Join Canberra’s own Martini Whisperer Phillip Jones for a memorable evening to explore its mysteries, history and how to craft the perfect cocktail at home. Phillip will also share his insights into the the role of the Martini in adding glamour to the suburban cocktail hour, and providing some 'ginspiration' along the way. There’s not much about the Martini he doesn’t know, he was also invited to speak on its cultural history for TEDx Canberra and made TED history by mixing one on stage!

Naturally, all that talk of Dry Martinis is sure to make you thirsty and Martinis will be available, crafted under his expert eye. So dress up for a fabulous cocktail party and a very special door prize - a personalised Martini masterclass with the Martini Whisperer himself for up to 6 friends in the comfort of your own home! Entry includes first drink, and canapés, with cash bar available for further refreshments., Instagram @themartiniwhisperer,
