Queensland Yacht Club cocktail

Learn how to make a winning Chilcano cocktail recipe with an Aussie twist

Who doesn’t appreciate a refreshing and fruity cocktail on a warm summer day? And a winning cocktail recipe to boot! 

After a fierce competition featuring 26 original recipes to find the best Chilcano cocktail in the country, Alicia Clarke from Double Deuce Lounge in Sydney was crowned the Chilcano Champion in the first-ever Aussie Pisco Chilcano Competition.

Alicia’s creation, named ‘The Queensland Yacht Club’, gives a refreshing Australian twist to the Chilcano with the use of tropical mango and pineapple cordial, Stone’s Ginger Wine and of course, Peru’s favourite spirit, Pisco.

This mouth-watering cocktail is a simple recipe that brings together the bright citrus flavours of Pisco, spicy bite of ginger, complex bitters and zest of lime for the ideal summer cocktail. 

And the good news is, Double Deuce Lounge will be hosting a live demonstration on 16 February at 6:00pm on Instagram to show you how to make this winning cocktail! Just follow @DoubleDeuceLounge and tune in at 6pm for their live video. 

The winning cocktail – The Queensland Yacht Club – is a sunshiney, Aussie-fruit forward, super well-balanced cocktail that put Pisco on show with a medley of tropical fruits, citrusy freshness and a hit of ginger spice.

Make sure you grab the following ingredients beforehand so you can make the cocktail at home as you follow Alicia’s instructions during the live demonstration.
