The Immersery at Melbourne Food & Wine Festival

Okay, so water might not sound like the most promising theme for a cocktail event, but throw in the help of Australia's best bartenders and you might just witness a miracle. That's what is scheduled to go down this March at The Immersery: Festival Kitchen, Bar & Raingarden, a pop-up restaurant-bar hybrid running in conjunction with the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival.

Top bartenders from around the country will team up with local bars for a string of collaborative cocktail evenings based around the festival's theme: H2O. Each mixologist will design three cocktails inspired by the three states of water - liquid, solid and gas - and with talent such as Tim Philips from Bulletin Place in Sydney, Pasan Wijesena from Earl's Juke Joint and Chris Martinez from Brisbane's Alfred & Constance teaming up with the likes of The Everleigh, Black Pearl and Whisky & Alement, you know you're going to end up both shaken and stirred.

Regional Victorian bars get a shout-out, too, with the final weekend putting the spotlight on Geelong's Strasse and The Dispensary Enoteca in Bendigo.  The fun kicks off 28 February and will run Thursdays to Sundays until16 March.

The Immersery: Festival Kitchen, Bar & Raingarden, Queensbridge Square, 1A Queens Bridge St, Southbank, Vic.
