Sydney bar slammed for ‘To-Kill-Her’ cocktail

“Domestic violence and femicide is a real issue, pairing that issue with alcohol is beyond disgusting.”

Patrons of Little Jack Horner in Coogee have called out the establishment for a cocktail named ‘To-Kill-Her’ – that appears to be a play-on phrase for the spirit tequila – which is made with orange, lemon, grapefruit bitters, cointreau and tequila.

Many expressed their outrage on the bar’s public Facebook page, branding the name of the drink “grossly irresponsible”.

“The ‘To Kill Her’ cocktail name is neither funny nor clever,” one person wrote. “It is a grossly irresponsible act to have it appear on your menu.

“Domestic violence and femicide is a real issue, pairing that issue with alcohol is beyond disgusting.”
