Sometimes the perfect story just comes together and finding out the Monkey Shoulder has teamed up with Gary’s Quality Meats to create Australia’s first cocktail in a sausage is one of those times, it’s just genius.

We’ve all heard of cocktail sausages, but this is next level with footy fans now able to enjoy a Whisky Old Fashioned cocktail when cheering on the NRL Grand Final this weekend.

The succulent pork and beef snags are infused with the ingredients from a Whisky Old Fashioned cocktail, including Monkey Shoulder, bitters, sugar syrup and tangy orange zest. And just when you thought things couldn’t get better, Monkey Shoulder and Gary’s Quality Meats will be giving away 200 FREE packs to hungry footy fans.

Monkey Shoulder Brand Manager, Mike Lowe, said: “We love putting a Monkey twist on everything we do, just like creating a one-of-a-kind whisky wiener to celebrate the footy finals. As punters barrack for their team, we want them to mix things up and make it Monkey instead.

“There’s no better time to branch out and experience something different to your default brew. Our Monkey Shoulder Grand Cocktail sausages are sure to make your footy finals barbie an absolute banger.”

The Grand Cocktail Sausages are available at Gary’s Quality Meats in Prahran Markets on Friday 30 September and Saturday 1 October for the NRL Grand Final 

The 200 free packs of bangers will be served up on a first in best dressed basis, so run don’t walk to Gary’s Quality Meats. The Grand Cocktail Sausages RRP at $23.90 for a pack of six snags.

With footy finals reaching their culmination this weekend, there is still time to check out our Free Footy Finals Checklist and make sure you are making the most of your venue during the finals.
