Lemonade, raspberry and cola come in one cool ice block and it’s available for a limited time. So join KISSTERIA and ‘Lick It Up’ Down Under.

What to Drink

Hot summer nights call for an icy cold one, and we’re enjoying the crisp, fresh flavour of Byron Bay Brewing Pale Lager, a beer that was only available on tap at the brewery and now comes in 6 packs. Good with BBQs and lazy pizza nights.

Another refreshing drink for summer is Ricard, the aniseed-flavoured spirit diluted in chilled water and served with ice. Nothing like enjoying a pastis to remind you of the south of France. Santé!
