Help celebrate Liquorland's 36th birthday in August with these popular 1980s cocktails
The year is 1981.
The radio is playing Girls On Film by Duran Duran, Don’t You Want Me by The Human League and Kids In America by Kim Wilde. Raiders of the Lost Ark is smashing movie box office records and everyone’s glamming it up rhinestone-style watching Dynasty on TV.
Teased hair, pirate styles and shoulder pads are big (literally), and ‘Daisy Dukes’ denim hotpants are huge thanks to TV show Dukes of Hazzard.
Liquorland has just opened its first 18 stores across New Zealand, and an increasingly creative cocktail culture is growing, with popular drinks like the Cosmopolitan, B-52, Pina Colada and Bucks Fizz (thanks to the band of the same name who were topping music charts at the time).
So, put on some old tunes, tease your hair high, and whip up some of our top 1980s cocktails to help celebrate Liquorland’s birthday month…
