Sticky Bec – their take on an Aperol Sour – is the cocktail the boys behind the bar named after me. Ask for one next time you are there! And while it was bloody delicious, it didn’t beat the fun I had keeping up with the bartenders downing Ferna Branca shots between cocktails. Between us, we – my friends Kari and Chris and the BAR FLY me – tried all the daily blackboard list of original drinks. Intelligent as well as tasty, Rodman’s Peace ($19) plum vodka, rosé, finger lime, sour was the choice. Overheard: “There’s the board, all the classics, or describe something and I’ll make it” said cheeky cutie Yaman. Up the stairs, above community dining icon Tablefor20, the original small Sydney bar (six and a half years on) keeps coming at you – uber flavour and fun.
