The five cocktail jugs you need to try in Newcastle right now

Let’s just get one thing clear, jugs are not just for beer!

And if there’s one thing we like more than a tasty afternoon aperitif here at Newcastle Live it’s a cocktail jug to share with friends!

Check out some of the contenders below… And remember, as always, drink responsibly.

A Sake Sunset at Susuru

This little cheeky addition to the Susuru drinks menu will take your ramen slurping to the next level. Grab one at Susuru on King Street in Newcastle.

A Bourbon Peach Tea at The Newcastle Hotel

With a lineup of tasty jugs on offer, it’s hard to choose just one. But as we head into the warmer months, we can’t go past a refreshing peach iced tea. Grab one at The Newcastle Hotel.

A Margie at The Greenroof

And while we’re talking summer, is there a better accompaniment to an afternoon in the beer garden than a margie jug? We think not! Grab one at The Greenroof on Tudor Street in Hamilton.

A Drunken Sailor at The Lucky

When you start mixing Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum with ginger beer we’re like putty in your hands. Grab this little number, along with a bunch of other tasty cocktail jugs at The Lucky on Hunter Street in Newcastle.

There’s a rainbow of jugs to choose from while you take in the harbour at Honeysuckle Hotel but we can’t go past the Pash n Dash with pineapple, passion fruit, malibu, pineapple juice and Bacardi.
