Sounds on the Terrace: Ben Panucci
Put away the Aperol Spritz and say no way to frosé. The MCA and Young Henrys have teamed up to refresh your summer cocktail of choice, especially for the Sounds on the Terrace summer series kicking off this November.
Introducing the Lagerita, the love child of a beer and a margarita.
Recalling hot Mexican nights, it mixes tequila, Cointreau and a generous squeeze of fresh lime juice with the citrusy hops of Young Henrys Natural Lager.
The Lagerita is best served with sunsets and tunes on the MCA’s rooftop Sculpture Terrace.
Sounds on the Terrace brings together art, good brews and free live music on the first Wednesday of each month.
Throw in killer views of the Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House and it’s perfect for your mid-week wind down.
Free entry, no booking required.
