Polly Celebrates Her 18th Birthday
Expect some Sex on the Beach and a Screaming Orgasm or two…
Fancy a cocktail at 1990’s prices? Visit Polly, for one night only.
On September 16th Polly is celebrating her 18th birthday with a ‘Party Like It’s 1999’ theme – 90’s cocktails at 90’s prices. Polly is bringing back old ‘favorites’ like the Reef Margarita, Sex on the Beach, Banana Grasshopper, Fluffy Duck and of course the Screaming Orgasm.
All cocktail specials are served at 90’s prices and a bit of tongue and cheek.
The Screaming Orgasm is only cocktail ever garnished with guest giggles; vodka, amaretto, coffee liqueur and Baileys. We thought we’d up its game by pouring it over a scoop of Neapolitan ice cream and serving it with a chocolate spoon. Ever had one before?
Who can forget the grasshopper, Polly’s incarnation for the evening; the Banana Grasshopper combining two trashy titans.
in one creamy delicious dessert of a cocktail. Creme de menthe, white chocolate and banana liqueur, garnished with frozen choc banana slice and a mint leaf lolly. Now it’s a party.
Polly has been a Fitzroy institution since opening her doors in 1999 and the amazing thing is that Polly is pretty much the same as when she opened. Polly has been proudly keeping the public lubricated with cocktails for 18 years.
Drink specials for the evening include:
The only cocktail ever garnished with guest giggles; vodka, amaretto, coffee liqueur and Baileys. We thought we’d up its game by pouring it over a scoop of Neopolitan ice cream and serving it with a chocolate spoon. Ever had one before?
A vacation is always a good thing; so why not indulge in this little escapist number? Cuervo Tranditionale tequila, lime and blue curacao syrup, garnished with a zing of Wizz Fizz and the obligatory umbrella. Take some time out from the serious.
Sex on the beach
Yes, we bartenders were pretty direct back then. And hilarious. This refreshing and ridiculously easy glass of vodka, peach, orange and cranberry returns in style, with consequential jelly babies (toes dipped in cinnamon ‘sand’) on top.
A new wave classic from London that heralded a change in cocktail culture, this refreshing serve of gin, lemon, fig and blueberry was a starkly simple antidote for excess.
Blue Pina Colada
Toast the end of an era with this blend of rum, coconut cream, pineapple juice and blue curacao syrup. It’s the taste of history.
Two trashy titans combined in one creamy delicious dessert of a cocktail. Creme de menthe, white chocolate and banana liqueur, garnished with frozen choc banana slice and a mint leaf lolly. Now it’s a party.
In the nineties, the Cosmo ruled with a designer-labeled iron grip, so try this popular variation: Ketel One citrus vodka, orange triple sec, lime and cranberry, shaken until frosty. Relive those Sex & The City moments.
Old school to the core, anyone remembers this classic mix of Matusalem rum, advocaat, cream, and soda? Garnished with your own, squeaky rubber ducky. So cute you won’t just nurse your drink, you’ll cuddle it.
A lot of work goes into this awesome part-piece: a fearsome layer of green Chartreuse and vodka topped with a soothing layer of orange juice, finished with a third layer of Camorra raspberry liqueur and grenadine. Topped with raspberries and butterflies. Drink, don’t drive.
