Introducing: HOOPLA

23 September 2019


2020 is a milestone for Malthouse Theatre – 30 years of Melbourne's most provocative theatre company occupying one of Melbourne's most iconic buildings.

To celebrate this momentous occasion we’ve partnered with the brilliant crew behind The Everleigh Bottling Co to create a custom cocktail inspired by Malthouse Theatre, which will be available all year long!

HOOPLA is a bold twist on the classic Negroni. A layered and intriguing yet approachable cocktail best enjoyed in the shadows of a dimly lit speakeasy or the dark of the theatre.

This distinctive cocktail features cold-brewed coffee liqueur from our friends at Mr Black Coffee Liqeuer, Campari, Aperol, and the finest Sweet Vermouth. Enjoy over a crystal clear block of Navy Strength Ice and garnish with an orange twist and fresh blackberries.

Some of you may have had the chance to sample HOOPLA at our Season 2020 Launch. If you missed out, or want another tipple, head to the Malthouse Bar next time you’re at the theatre. We'd love to hear what you think!
