Cocktail Menu: Melbourne Idle Spring Time Sour

The Idle Spring Time Sour cocktail

The Melbourne Idle Spring Time Sour was crafted by Alex Boon for Melbourne’s Pearl Diver Cocktail and Oyster Bar, in a celebration of World Vodka Day with Idle Hour Vodka.

“Spring has sprung in Melbourne and this cocktail is all about showcasing the vibrancy of the city,” said Alex. “Using seasonal ingredients sourced from Melbourne farmers, I wanted to create a bright and vibrant cocktail that used Idle Hour Vodka as the platform to showcase the seasonal-specific flavours that also pay homage to this iconic city, its European influence and culture.”
