Coffee culture: A history

Australia’s love affair with coffee is stronger than ever; it’s become a way of life. But exactly how did a beverage manage to shape our country’s culture?

Signature drink: Hains & Co's Crimson Mainsail

Hains & Co's Crimson Mainsail

Hains & Co's Crimson Mainsail

Don’t be fooled – this cocktail looks pretty but packs a punch fit for a pirate.

Hidden down a laneway in Adelaide, Hains & Co is a nautically themed bar without the naff. Yes, there are model ships and an anchor present, but there's also an impressive selection of gin and rum, and a long list of stellar cocktails. One of them is the Crimson Mainsail.

"We created this cocktail to showcase sloe gin," says owner Marcus Motteram. "We've made it with Plymouth and Haymans, and are currently using Elephant sloe gin from Germany."

A word of warning: don't be fooled by the drink's good looks. "It's boozy enough to make you feel like a real pirate."

Hains & Co, 23 Gilbert Pl, Adelaide, SA, hainsco.com.au

Combine 45ml sloe gin, 15ml bourbon (Motteram suggests Maker's Mark), 30ml lemon juice, 25ml sugar syrup (equal parts caster sugar and water) and an eggwhite in a shaker. Shake once without ice, then add ice and shake again. Strain into a chilled coupe, garnish with viola flowers, and serve.
