The art of cocktail making

December 10, 2021
By Ioni Doherty

 In line with its global campaign to Stir Creativity, Bombay Sapphire has commissioned visual artist, Ellen Porteus, to use cocktails as a canvas and create bespoke cocktail garnishes, inspired by Bombay Sapphire, Bombay Bramble and its latest expression, Bombay Sunset. 

Ms Porteus’ sippable artworks will be available for a limited time only at venues across Australia via a ‘pop up’ Bombay Sapphire cocktail menu over summer.

During the pandemic, the arts and hospitality industries faced intense hardships, so to support and give back, Bombay Sapphire will be donating $1 per cocktail to two charities: TipJar, and the Arts Project Australia. With both industries needing community support, Bombay Sapphire encourages Australians to head down to their local bars and visit their favourite bartenders this Summer in a way of giving back. 

 “This has been such a fun project to work on! Out of all the canvases I’ve used in the past, I’ve got to say a cocktail is one of the most imaginative. I’ve loved bringing Bombay Sapphire flavours to life through my designs. I’m proud to be partnering with Arts Project Australia and Tip Jar Fund to give back to the creative community on this project. I’m so excited to see Australians returning to bars this summer and I hope they enjoy my artwork while they’re sipping on their cocktails!” said Ms Porteus.
