Celebrate International Cocktail Day at Southern Sun The Cullinan with half price cocktails.



What better way to celebrate World Cocktail Day than with an award-winning cocktail at Stella Café & Bar at Southern Sun The Cullinan where you can enjoy your favourite apéritif or try something new with 50% off all cocktails?


World Cocktail Day is a global celebration which marks the publication date of the first definition of a cocktail on 13 May 1806. On this day the New York tabloid defined a cocktail as “a stimulating liquor, composed of spirits of any kind, sugar, water and bitters”.



In December 2022, Mark Abrahams, Southern Sun The Cullinan’s renowned barman won top honours in the Best Cocktail category at the Distell Inter Hotel Challenge with his ASPRIS ’93 which was named in honour of his aspirations to achieve all goals with a purpose since 1993.



Mark has graciously shared his Aspris ’93 cocktail recipe which is best enjoyed in a Coupe glass:

37,5 ml Van Ryn’s 12YO brandy

25 ml cellulose solution

20 ml simple syrup

12,5 ml ClemenGold® juice (keep peel aside)

10 ml Amaretto liqueur

20 ml apple juice

5 ml fresh lime juice

Garnish: Edible flowers


Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake for 20 to 30 seconds. Strain contents removing ice and dry shake (10 - 15 secs). Squeeze fresh oils from ClemenGold® peel into glass. Double strain and pour into chilled glass. Garnish with edible flowers. Serve, enjoy and drink responsibly.



Cheers! See you on Saturday, 13 May 2023 at Stella Café & Bar for half price cocktails. Ts and Cs apply.
