Tequila is shaping up to be the spirit of 2010, with the opening of a new tequila bar in Sydney’s north, called Miss Marley’s.
Located on the site of the former Safety Wolf bar in Manly, the bar is the brainchild of Kieran Bailey and Adam Clarke, formerly of Henry Afrikas bar.
Licensed for just 40 patrons, the bar has positioned itself as a “small bar concept where 1950s vintage glam meets the passion of Central and South America”.
“It is based on Central and South American cuisine and tequila-based cocktails with some of the rarest and finest tequilas on offer,” said Clarke.
Their signature cocktails include the ‘Rattlesnake Margarita’, made from crushed ginger and honey water, shaken with Herradura Reposado tequila, Grand Marnier and pressed lime and the ‘Mai-Teqi-Tai’, a blend of Cazadores Blanco and Anejo tequilas, shaken with orange and apricot brandies, orgeat and sugar syrup.
Executive chef Trinidad Lopez is serving up a range of Central, South American and Caribbean dishes, including Empanadas, Navajo braised pork and red bean quesadilla and Caribbean lamb shanks.
