Dry July with Worksmith and Mercedes me

Not all wonderful flavours and experiences need to be associated with alcohol

By: Orlando Marzo

We celebrate Dry July here at Worksmith because not only is it a fantastic cause, we also know that not all wonderful flavours and experiences need to be associated with alcohol.

Worksmith is a community hub for passionate teams and individuals in Australia’s food, beverage and hospitality industry.

With a shared passion for championing great talent, events and ideas, this July Worksmith has partnered with Mercedes me. Worksmith’s Beverage Director (and 2018 World-Class Bartender of the Year) Orlando Marzo has embodied this Dry July partnership by creating arguably the world’s best non-alcoholic cocktail, proving excellence can be achieved without alcohol.
