Cocktails To Cure Your Hump Day Blues

Is the work week getting you down? Does ‘Friday’ seem like some kind of elusive, futuristic utopia? Did you arrive at work at 9:00am, work for eight hours, and then notice the clock still says 9:20am? (No, it’s not broken). Do not fear, relief is near.

For that little midweek pick-me-up that’s going to make it all a little more bearable, here is a list of Melbourne’s top five Hump Day Cocktails.

Transit Rooftop Bar
2 Transport Hotel, Melbourne CBD

For those times when caffeine is just not cutting it, take a chance on the Transit Espresso Martini. A hit of coffee will stimulate the senses, but the addition of secret herbs and spices (*cough, tequila) will make ALL the difference.

Madame Brussels
59 Bourke St, Melbourne CBD

Nobody does a Moscow Mule like these cowboys and cowgirls. If a combination of vodka, lime, mint, ginger beer and aromatic bitter doesn’t sound like the freshest thing you’ve ever heard of, order a jug (guaranteed to be your new favourite Wednesday treat).

Berlin Bar
2/16 Corrs Ln, Melbourne

This secret little cocktail bar has the cure to ‘everlasting hopefulness’ when it comes to surviving the working week. The Affentheater, made with whisky, pineapple shrub and salted caramel (um, YUM) is your answer to the question- “How will I make it through this week?”

Aptly named Mint Leaves… Just Like Dad, the rum, soda and apple/mint syrup concoction will tantalise your tastebuds and leave you feeling, dare we say it, optimistic? Friday is less than a hop, skip and jump away. Hang in there!

Sister Bella
9 Sniders Ln, Melbourne

Last but not least, the Midori, Chartreuse, lime juice and cucumber infused Garden Gnome cocktail will cure what ails you (a case of the ol’ “hump day blues”). Hidden in a laneway, equipped with board games and quirky décor, this will be the kick you need to push through until end of day Friday.

Happy drinking, compadres!
