Sydney Escape

On Friday 26th May 2017, I flew from Melbourne to Sydney to meet with a group of girlfriends that I met through my daughter’s kindergarten about 7 years ago.

It has been over 10 years since I have been to Sydney……Here is just of a snapshot of this wonderful trip, the sights and of course…the margaritas…..

 

First Stop: Bungalow 8 www. bungalow8sydney.com.au and guess what…no margaritas on the menu. They only had jugs of simple alcohol available and cocktails would not be served until later in the evening. So I settled for a Pimms and Lemonade…Not the start I was hoping for!

So we continued our search for Sydney’s best Margarita and stumbled across The Barber Shop

Very Cool Bar but sadly, this margarita was one of the worst I have ever had and it was expensive:

I am never one to give up, so next stop: The Iconic Tequila Mockingbird in Paddington www.tequila-mockingbird.com.au

The Latin American Food and Tequila Based Cocktails were simply amazing. It was a fabulous night

Day 2: There is nothing like a good Mezcal Margarita to start the day at Brunch.  I enjoyed this one at the David Jones

The freshly squeezed tomato juice was just divine

Next stop was a recommendation and WOW…just…WOW, what a great recommendation. The Baxter Inn – Sophisticated bar featuring an extensive selection of top-shelf whiskies, plus classic cocktails.

We arrived early and enjoyed some amazing cocktails, margaritas and mocktails. The bartenders Simon and Sausage really looked after us…we simply told them what we liked and left it in their creative hands…..

We then headed down to Darling Harbour and Opera House to see the Vivid Festival – an annual outdoor lighting festival with immersive light installations and projections in Sydney. What a spectacular sight!

Day 3: Sydney really turned on the weather – it was warm and sunny so we headed to Bondi Beach and enjoyed the day shopping, eating and snuck in one last margarita at LUSH on Bondi before heading home. It was average ….
