Winter Wonderland at The Emporium Cocktail Bar

For those of you who know me well, or even at all, you’ll be aware that for me, cocktails are serious business. The Emporium Cocktail Bar in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley officially launched their new Winter Wonderland Cocktail menu on Thursday evening and I was there to taste the top new cocktails on offer. When it comes to a night out with your girlfriends, your lover or even dinner with your mother there should always be the perfect cocktail to compliment the occasion, and that is exactly what you will find at The Emporium. From the sea of subtle flavours in the Mad Tea to the delectable ‘Gardeners Fizz’ there is something for everyone.

The brains behind the new menu, bar manager Zac, was inspired by the children’s tale Alice in Wonderland and each of the 27 new drinks on the menu reflected a moment from the book, as did the entire evening (we began with the Mad Tea at 6pm and were greeted by the Queen of Hearts!).  You can take a peek through the entire menu, here.

The top cocktails of the evening, all equally unique, delicious and well made were the following…image001We were also treated to some of the truly delicious food on offer at the Emporium Cocktail Bar. The Soft Shell Mud crab was the food highlight of the evening and not only complimented the drinks perfectly but helped with reducing the hangover the next morning!

The night could not have been complete without the Queen of Hearts playing the perfect host! The service, cocktails and tapas were outstanding, as are all at the Emporium Hotel. You know where I’ll be this weekend and I beg you to try out The Emporium Cocktail Bar for yourself!
