Three Italian Cocktails to Try at Your Next Happy Hour

Is it just us, or does nothing taste quite as good as the first sip of a refreshing cocktail? Whether you’re recovering from a long work day or treating yourself to a mid-week outing, a tall, cool glass of drink hits just right, especially at your favourite Italian, Fratelli Fresh restaurant! We pride ourselves on our Italian cocktails, all served with a Fratelli Fresh twist. Join us for one of the most sought-after Happy Hours in Sydney!

Of course, there’s also plenty of Fratelli Fresh food to nibble on during Happy Hour: antipasti plates of calamari, bruschetta, zucchini flowers, arancini, marinated olives, and garlic bread ($6 each or 4 for $20 in Happy Hour). There’s also the crowd favourite of hand-tossed, Neapolitan-style pizzas, like Margherita and Diavola, for only $10 each.

If you’re ready to level up your Happy Hour, here are three Italian cocktails you should try at your next Fratelli Fresh visit. Salute!


Signature Spritzes

A spritz is a classic for a reason: light, fizzy, and oh-so refreshing. We offer everything from Aperol Spritz to Pink Gin Spritz and White Sangria — you name it, we’ve got it!

Our signature spritzes partner well with any of the antipasti platters: choose from sweet and effervescent to citrusy and moreish. Whether you’re after just one drink or are in for a big night, our spritzes can be ordered for $8 a glass, or $20 a jug. They’re the perfect accompaniment to a warm afternoon, surrounded by friends, family, or co-workers alike.

Turn an afternoon into a first-class experience with Fratelli Fresh Grosvenor Place’s Aperitivo Hour, located at 118 Harrington Street, The Rocks. There’s nothing quite like leaning back in a green, open terrace with a drink in hand, and a spectacular view to boot, is there?


If you’re a fan of bitters, there are few cocktails that are as satisfying as a Negroni ($8 in Happy Hour): a sophisticated aperitif that features gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth. Refined and elegant, the Italian spirit’s bitterness is offset beautifully with the lemon twist.

We think a Negroni is best enjoyed with bruschetta or a dish of marinated olives: take a break from your busy schedule and enjoy a Happy Hour with friends. Head over to Fratelli Fresh Westfield Sydney for some post-work drinks, and relish in the large bar area or, for a special occasion, in a private dining room, perfect for groups of up to 16.

Limoncello-Based Cocktail

While Limoncello is an Italian liqueur that is usually sipped on as an after-dinner shot, we mix Limoncello-based cocktails to ease up on the strength for a citrusy delight. Try our Sicilian Margarita, pairing Limoncello with Blanco Tequila, agave and rosemary, or our Limoncello Spritz ($8 in Happy Hour), with Prosecco, soda and basil for something tastily tangy.

The only thing better than a Limoncello-based cocktail is one enjoyed under the sun. Savour our Happy Hour at our al fresco area surrounded by greenery and fantastic water views, and book a communal table at the harbourside Fratelli Fresh Manly!

Which Fratelli Fresh Offers a Happy Hour?

With a great selection of antipasti, cocktails, wine, and beer on special, our Happy Hour is a Fratelli promotion you don’t want to miss. Happy Hour is available at all our restaurants with the exception of Entertainment Quarter and Darling Harbour when there are sporting events, conventions, pre-theatre or music events on, from 3pm – 6pm on weekdays.

Designated drivers or non-drinkers, fear not! Our versatile drinks menu also covers several non-alcoholic options. Sip on the likes of an Amaretti Sour or a Spritz de Passione, while still enjoying your afternoon.
