Cocktails to indulge in around the clock
There is no better balcony in Sydney to while away the hours than at The Clock Hotel in Sydney's bustling Surry Hills. Walk in off busy Crown Street and head straight through and around the corner to ascend the stairs up to another drinking space with its own bar and magnificent balcony.

There is always plenty of space even on its most crowded nights. I especially enjoy their balcony cocktail list with its extensive variety and indulgent Happy Hour from 6pm - 7pm Mondays to Saturdays where the cocktails are not the usual $17 but $9.50 instead. Certainly a happy hour to be had by all.

Cocktails on the balcony of the Clock Hotel

Always a hard choice but some of the real tempters are Betty's Bellini with gin, prosecco, raspberry puree, vanilla and fresh lemon or try the Crown Street Queen with its Belvedere grapefruit, maraschino, pomegranate, passionfruit, fresh lemon and egg white.

Both are completely refreshing and easy to drink, keeping you wanting more. For something after a busy day of work but needing to stay awake longer try the Espresso Martini drowning a fresh espresso with coffee liqueur, vodka and vanilla. That will keep you going for a few more hours. You have to love the old favourite with a twist, the Clocka 'Colada with its traditional flavours of Havana Club, pineapple juice, fresh lime and salted mango coconut sorbet.

Keeping my favourite till last is the Devil in red and not just because my favourite colour is red but because it is a concoction of divine flavours with grapefruit, berry liqueur, almond, fresh lemon and cranberry juice.

This is one Clock that keeps on ticking by with good music, perfect atmosphere and moorish cocktails.
