Whisky is the base for many a delicious cocktail combo, from the classic citrus Old Fashioned to the refreshing flavours of the mojito. Bearing this in mind, cool-kid whisky brand Monkey Shoulder has paired up with the City of Sydney to provide Monkey-certified cocktail sips to celebrate the Lunar New Year.

From February 6-14, cocktail lovers can head to Whisky Shoulder's Martin Place custom-built pop-up bar for smooth tipples and Chinese New Year vibes. If you miss that golden opportunity, they'll be mixing, shaking and stirring it up at World Square from February 15-21, too. Aside from the sublime sips on offer, the Monkey Shoulder staff will be handing out fortune cookies rounding out the happy Lunar New Year tidings. We'll drink to that.
