Aspiration: The world’s best non-alcoholic cocktail, made by the world’s best bartender

Mercedes me Store Melbourne in collaboration with hospitality hub Worksmith is serving up a world class non-alcoholic cocktail in store throughout the month of July.

Produced by Orlando Marzo, 2018 World Class Global Bartender of the Year and Worksmith Beverage Director, the cocktail showcases the complexity and quality achievable with a non-alcoholic beverage and aligns with the timing of Dry July.

“You don’t have to miss out on flavour to enjoy a great non-alcoholic drink”, said Orlando Marzo. “When creating a great drink, it is important for me to source seasonal ingredients and botanicals with the farmers – to learn new flavour profiles which give me the inspiration for my beverages. For this cocktail, we’re using Seedlip Garden 108, the world’s first distilled non-alcoholic spirit, Lemon Saccharum with Aniseed Myrtle and infused with Mountain Marigold, finished off with CAPI Sparkling Yuzu and garnished with Mountain Marigold to give an extra boost of aromas”

“Mercedes me Store is an exceptional space, with the shared values of collaboration and community that we celebrate at Worksmith. To me it’s such a beautiful venue and I hope Melburnians come in to enjoy the cocktail throughout the month of July.”

Orlando Marzo’s delicious cocktail will be available at Mercedes me Store throughout July, and will be brought to life by the man himself during a number of exclusive in store events, designed to showcase the importance and complexity of non-alcoholic beverages.
