Try Nick & Nora’s exclusive AO Spritz recipe


Nick & Nora’s returns to the Australian Open in 2024, bringing with them the glamour and speakeasy flair of their Melbourne cocktail institution.

This year, acclaimed head bartender Kayla Reid created a sensational spritz-style cocktail exclusively for AO 2023 – which you can now try your hand at recreating via the recipe below.  

The tangy, fruity, refreshing summer spritz is a true delight, crafted for enjoyment under the sun.

The combination of Australian dry cassis delivers a luscious berry note, while the invigorating ginger and grapefruit shrub provide a fresh and spicy kick. With a splash of dry champagne, this concoction is elevated to new heights, offering a beautiful fizz that is sure to make your day even brighter.

Nick & Nora’s will return with their Bar Superbox at Rod Laver Arena, and we can’t wait to see what libations they serve up this summer!
