Australia Day Cocktails with ABSOLUT OZ

With Australia Day nearly upon us, it’s time to celebrate with a little Aussie flavour. ABSOLUT OZ is a spiced orange flavoured vodka created as a collaboration with  renowned Australian film director, Baz Luhrmann.

We’ve selected two cocktails created by Baz and Cocktail Chef Ben Davidson that are easy to prepare at home, both named after Australian beaches.
