Alright folks, stop what you’re doing because you’re going to want to read this.

What if I told you that you can get drunk in a HOT AIR BALLOON for FREE? Pretty cool, huh?

This December, Hendrick’s Gin is launching a bloody hot air balloon bar in Darling Harbour, giving you the opportunity to drink a fancy schmancy G&T while floating around in the sky.

I mean it when I say, it truly does not get any cooler than that.

this could be you

The Most Unusual Balloon Bar is only available for one weekend on December 5th, so you’ll have to be quick if you want to try this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Bookings open at 9am AEDT on Monday November 30th on the official Hendrick’s website on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you’re lucky enough to secure one of the strictly-limited places, they’ll also chuck in a hamper full of Hendrick’s-themed goodies. Again, this is *free*. FREE! FREEEEEEE!

I truly can’t understand why they’re not charging out the wazoo for this cool experience, but they’re not, so I’m not going to question it. The best things in life are free, and by that, I mean this is the best thing in my life right now.

“It’s not a Hendrick’s Gin affair without the extraordinary. We have gone above and beyond to bring Sydneysiders a spectacle from the street to the sky in the most unusual style,” Hendrick’s Gin Brand Ambassador Luke Sanderson said.

“Adding whimsy and wonder is what we do. We hope Sydneysiders will join our celebration of the unusual and raise a glass to celebrate a summer like none other.”

Honestly, if you’re looking for an end of year date idea, or are just keen to do something cool with your mates, you’d be stupid not to at least *try* to cop a ticket to this.
