hipsters breakfast

This continues our series on breakfast drinks, where we highlight those cocktails that fortify our mornings with the gin, whiskey and resolve we need to keep going. Next up: a couple of morning cocktails from Kensington Street Social.

Kensington Street Social, located inside Sydney’s Old Clare Hotel, makes serious drinks that don’t take themselves too seriously. Case in point: the below breakfast cocktails dubbed the Fruit Looped Cereal Killer and Hipster’s Breakfast. The former employs vodka, Aperol and apricot brandy, which combine to form a balanced breakfast by themselves. But then comes the Fruit Loops milk to really tie the room together. And the Hipster’s Breakfast: why, that involves fernet and cold brew coffee, of course.
