Take your tastebuds on a cocktail tour
Wellington is spoiled for choice with its cocktail bar scene! Our local bartenders are all incredibly talented and imaginative when it comes to creating concoctions that embellish our memories. Here are a couple of tipples that have caught our attention. From newly released cocktail lists to old classics, you'll be sure to find the perfect concoction to send off summer in style.
At Dragonfly you can take a trip on the Pandan Express, a deliciously exotic cocktail using Dragonfly Gin, chambord, lemon,Pandan syrup and raspberries. The team created this cocktail when they launched Dragonfly Gin in December 2021. Our gin has opulent notes of mandarin, the freshness of Hinoki and undertones of ginger, which perfectly compliment Chambord and the house made Pandan syrup. Add the zesty raspberries and it makes a simply delicious cocktail.
