The Wood Roaster team have come up with a completely new cocktail for people to make at home … one that combines some favourite ingredients – coffee and rum – and supports local Aussie businesses
The cocktail is a collaborative effort between Sydney locals, The Wood Roaster and BRIX, and uses 100% Aussie-made products (#supportlocal). The Wood Roaster approached the BRIX team to help them create something delicious. BRIX worked with the flavour profile of TWR’s unique coffee, and came up with the Wood & Brix cocktail.
Once the cocktail was designed, Jamie Fleming (ex-Masterchef Australia 2014 contestant and owner of Alba Bar & Delicatessen in Queensland) was asked to whip it up. Jamie spent four years judging world-class cocktails so they thought he’d be a great person to test the recipe.
This brand new cocktail has some amazing Australian-based products, so supports local Aussie businesses, whilst also tasting amazing!
