GOLD COAST, Australia - The Gold Coast’s most exciting new cocktail lounge has Christmas all ‘FIX’ed up with the launch of ‘12 Days of Christmas’ on December 14.

FIX Bar, at Hilton Surfers Paradise, is getting into the festive season with 12 days worth of Christmas-inspired cocktails to tantalise taste-buds.

The brainchild behind FIX Bar, internationally renowned mixologist Grant Collins, has developed a range of cocktails to take bar hoppers right up to Christmas, with the menu including a Christmas Pudding cocktail, Christmas Punch and a White Chocolate and Cranberry Mojito.

According to Collins, the festive season is a time to celebrate and get creative. “What better way to get into the festive ‘spirit’ than with some appropriately themed Christmas cocktails, each carefully created to reflect the traditional flavours of some of our favourite Christmas treats,” he said. “If you are looking for a laid back venue for a pre-Christmas catch up or a spot for work drinks before holidays then why not come along to sample our cocktail of the day at FIX Bar.”
