They might say ‘all that glitters isn’t gold’ but that isn’t the case at Sofitel Melbourne On Collins with the launch of Aphrodite, an exquisitely opulent Goddess inspired cocktail that comes served with a side of sparkling gold.

Served in two exquisitely handcrafted Odette glasses by Martin Jakobsen, Aphrodite is a modern twist on the classic Champagne cocktail made with 100 year old Grand Marnier Centenaire, Remy Martin Louis 13 Cognac, Armand De Brignac – Ace of Spades Champagne and bitters finished off with a sugar cube and 24K of gold bullion complete with certification.

Available for a limited time at The Atrium Bar, the Aphrodite comes in a pair for the grand price of $1,000 (not sold individually) which includes a gold plated bottle of Armand De Brignac – Ace of Spades Champagne to savour afterwards, as well as the swan shaped Odette cocktail glasses and 24k of gold bullion as a take-home reminder of this indulgent Goddess experience.

As a proud sponsor of the Goddess: Power, Glamour, Rebellion exhibition currently on display at the Australian Centre of Moving Image (ACMI), Sofitel Melbourne On Collins has created this unique masterpiece in celebration of the goddess in all of us as well as the female trailblazers and leaders on and off the screen.

For those who might want to continue the Goddess experience, there is the option of staying overnight with the Goddess Package at Sofitel Melbourne On Collins, crafted to provide that ethereal realm of luxury and premium service in the heart of Melbourne.

The Aphrodite is available at The Atrium Bar on Level 35 which is open until 10pm Sunday to Thursday and until 11pm on Friday and Saturday.
