Looking for a new cocktail bar with a bit of class, and retro sass? But also looking to stay somewhere close to your usual? Well here’s a Win-Win.
If you’ve ever enjoyed a drink or two or three along the Ponsonby strip, then surely you’ve heard of The Whisky. These fun, cocktail enthusiasts have now introduced their new retro inspired bar, Win-Win, sure to cause a stir amongst the movers and shakers of Auckland.
With an evolving menu of carefully crafted cocktails, and a few sweet treats made by Win Win’s chief jellyologist, Jessica Mentis, get ready to say hello to the newest and grooviest hideout.
Here are a few of our faves, made by Win-Win’s expert bartenders Seth Williams (formerly from The Whisky), Thomas Atuahiva and Isaac Fitzpatrick (formerly from Augustus and Ostro):
The Perfumer; this cocktail combines Jose Cuervo Gran Centenario with balsamic vinegar, lemon, white chilli and orange blossom water to present your senses with an aroma unrivaled.
Shot Gun Slipper, takes Bulleit bourbon and peach liquer to create a match made in fruit and spice heaven.
Lemon Mirage, is an exploration in all things citrus. Combining Bacardi Carta Blanca with lemon juice, house-made orange-ginger syrup and limencello, this is a thirst-quenhcer and party starter.
212 Ponsonby Rd, Ponsonby, Auckland
