Let us introduce you to the “Girls Night Out” the fantastic and oh so pretty cocktail that is available in Om Nom Kitchen, Melbourne. The drink is “vodka shaken with crème de fraise, fresh pressed raspberries, violet & rose syrup, [and] fresh pressed citrus. Served straight up on a mirror platter with raspberry & chambord lipstick, rose petals, [and] champagne perfume.”
Yup, Girls Night Out—which, in its own right, is a magical-looking, foamy drink—quite literally comes with a small perfume bottle filled with champagne, and the “lipstick” is flavored with fresh raspberries and raspberry liqueur.
According to Instagram user @makingupvita, who posted a photo of the concoction, it’s “very sweet” and “perfumed.” There’s a method to the madness: You’re supposed to “spray the champagne atomizer into your mouth, apply the sorbet lipstick to your lips, then drink the raspberry cocktail.”
In her words: “Crazy!” We’ll have to make it to Melbourne one day to check this one out for ourselves.
Some of the other weird and wonderful creations at this restaurant which is bartended by Chris McDonald and has a bar curated by award-winning mixologist Grant Collins, are a “Secret Garden” drink that comes served in a spherical glass and sits on a bed of “soil” loaded with absinthe-infused gummy worms, and there’s also a “Champagne Bubble Bath” presented in a toy bathtub with a rubber ducky.
If you’re in the mood for something minty, you can order a “Toothpaste Mojito” that comes with a wooden toothbrush. There’s also something called “Netflix Movie Nights” that features “popcorn washed rum with house made cherry cola, fresh lavender, spices,” all of which is “served with salted popcorn in a popcorn cup.”
