I brought along my partner in food-sampling-crime for what was set to be a fantastic evening of Brisbane dining.
The evening was supported by Uber Brisbane who supplied a voucher for free uber rides for the bar hop (find out how you can get your own further down the article!). It was the first time I had used the Uber app, and whilst I was a little nervous, that was quickly overshadowed by astonishment at how friendly each of the drivers were (offering a fresh water bottle and mints), how clean the cars were (even got to travel in a brand new Land Rover on one trip!) plus just how easy it was to order the pick up and have it all paid for through the app. I will never catch a traditional taxi again!!
Our first venue was Bucci Brisbane were we enjoyed a Martinez Tanqueray Gin cocktail and some gorgeous crostini and prosciutto tapas. The cocktail had a kick, what a fantastic way to start a night out!
Our second venue, Watt Bar and Restaurant, served Lychee Tanqueray Gin cocktails and Thai fish cakes! And of course, being set on the Brisbane River – we had a fabulous outlook!
Before the Tanqueray Bar Hop I’d never tried a drop of gin, so was excited that I enjoyed the cocktails! So much so in fact, I can’t wait for the Tanqueray Gin Garden Bar which is set to open next Thursday 17th of July at the Brisbane Night Noodle Markets, as a part of the Good Food Month celebrations. Tanqueray have created a secret garden grand ambience, so worthy of an Instagram snap, that they’ll reward you with a complimentary Tanqueray and Tonic, if you share your favourite Tanqueray moments on social media!! How cool is that, I’m loving this gin more and more!
I hope you enjoyed some of my happy snaps from the night, and come along to the Tanqueray Gin Garden Bar next week for your own #tonightwetanqueray fun!!
