Winter’s a tough time of year for all. When the cold weather hits, many opt for hot cuppa rather than hitting the town for a couple bevvies with friends. But, lucky for us, Sydney hospo giant Merivale is giving us absolutely no excuse to not get out and about, even when the temperature drops. For all of June, Happy Hour at Merivale is offering a whopping 49% all drinks, at all venues.
Yep… you read that right. Every drop, up to 200 dollarydoos, is pretty much half price.
With over 39 establishments dotted across Sydney, there’s definitely something for everyone. From 5-7pm, every bar, restaurant and pub will be indulge us in the 49% off deal all month long.
Let us spell that out for you. A pint will come in under $5.50, cocktails around $9 and you can even get a bottle of Veuve Clicquot at the Paddington Hotel for a measly $81 bones. If that doesn’t knock your fluffy socks off then I don’t know what will.
Is this all sounding a tad familar? Well this is in fact the second year Merivale has run this particular promotion and it’s getting a great reception. Who’d have though half price drinks would be such a success…
“Sydney is the best city in the world when everyone is out having a great time,” says prominent Merivale CEO Justin Hemmes. “This is our way of saying, ‘It may be the end of the financial year but it’s just the beginning of the party”
Cocktails are calling, so suit up and double park.
Kick-On With the New Coca-Cola Energy Drink
Soft drink juggernaut Coca-Cola has announced the impending release of its very own energy drink aptly named Coca-Cola Energy. The drink is said to maintain the trademark cola taste along with an extra-boost thanks to the added caffeine and guarana. It’s available in Australia from June 26 in 250ml cans in both regular and sugar-free variants.
Speaking about the new product, Lucie Austin, Coca-Cola Australia’s Marketing Director says Coca-Cola Energy is the latest example of the company offering people a wider range of drinks for different lifestyles and occasions.
“It is an exciting product to be introducing to Australians, and we think it will appeal to busy people on-the-go who are looking for an extra energy kick with a great Coca-Cola taste.”
To celebrate the launch of its new drink, Coca-Cola partnered with ‘Free Dance Party’ founder Christie Aucamp-Schutte to help her host the biggest free street party yet. The event energised hundreds of Sydneysiders last week who joined in on the impromptu dance-fest in Circular Quay.
“It’s great to have Coca-Cola’s support in helping me get more people dancing in the street,” said Christie. “It was the biggest Free Dance Party yet so hopefully this brings people new energy to make Sydney dance again.”
Coca-Cola Energy will be available in distinctive 250ml cans across Australia from June 26.
Woodford Reserve Looks to Confuse with Master’s Collection
Woodford Reserve is sure to please bourbon fans everywhere with their Master’s Collection. What’s so great about it? Aside from the flavour, this collection consists of two whiskeys—one that focuses on the grains, and the other on the wood. The two bourbons are called Select American Oak Bourbon and Oat Grain Kentucky Bourbon.
Master Distiller Chris Morris explains, “Oats are very mild, but at 18 per cent they show up; the oat character gives the whiskey notes of brown sugar, hints of cinnamon, and a dry fruit character. And when you taste this whiskey…it’s tasting like a nice oatmeal cookie—an adult oatmeal cookie. That just pops in my mind, and that’s what it tastes like to me.”
For the American Oak Bourbon, Woodford relied on Ozark-harvested trees so that they could get the right terroir of the wood. Morris says, “Even though it’s the same oak species, you see a difference. It’s a faster-growing area for wood, and that gives the whiskey a softer flavour—a more soft, nutty flavour, and there’s not the spiciness of some other oak.”
Both bourbons are aged almost nine years. “ tells us when it’s ready,” states Morris, “because each one is unique; the whiskey does the talking. So we happened to have two that are mature and ready right now, and I thought, well, let’s just have some fun and bring two out and just confuse the heck out of everybody.”
Study Shows Just Thinking About Coffee Can Boost Your Brain Function
Do you feel like you need a pick-me-up? Need something to sharpen your wits and get your brain working at full steam? Why not think about grabbing a nice hot coffee?
No, don’t actually go and get one. I mean, why not think about getting one? That’s all it takes, according to new and thrilling research from the science journal Consciousness and Cognition, which suggests that just thinking about a caffeinated beverage can boost brain function.
Naturally, this is incredible news for all those people who crave the cognitive benefits of coffee without having to actually drink the revolting slop. Or just for anyone who likes saving time.
The scientists conducted four experiments to compare the levels of “arousal” and “mental construal” between people exposed to coffee and tea-related cues – that is, being put in mind of the drinks without necessarily actually consuming them.
The results were exciting: exposure to coffee cues, the researchers found, “can lead to concrete construal via greater arousal”. Or, in non-nerdspeak, when people thought about coffee, their brains worked more good. And this occurred without the subjects actually taking a single sip.
Now, everyone has always known that coffee can give your grey matter a nice kickstart. But it’s a bit of a turn-up to find that it can do so without ever coming into contact with your insides. The only thing left to find out is whether it works with other drinks. If you can get drunk by thinking about beer, that changes everything.
