Cocktail Friday – The Glass House’s ‘I Live By The River’

Ms Fleur De Lys

The Glass House is a glass-encased, fine dining venue happily floating atop Hobart’s River Derwent. They’ve got glinting, 280 degree views of Sullivan’s Cove, a Tasmanian-centric wine list and a sense of Australian elegance here for your wedding guests to enjoy!

In the meantime, you can enjoy this refined cocktail recipe that they’ve revealed to us, especially for our ‘Tasmania Issue‘. Their ‘I Live by the River’ is a twist on a modern classic; the ‘London Calling’. The Glass House’s version fuses local wine and local gin – how delicious does that sound?

I Live by the River by The Glass House

  • 45ml Lawrenny 1818 Settlers gin
  • 10ml Sweetdram Escubac spirit
  • 10ml Fino sherry
  • 15ml Tasmanian Pinot Noir reduction
  • 3 dashes of orange bitters
  • Sugar syrup, to taste

Shake all ingredients with ice and strain. Garnish with your favourite edible flower.
