When it comes to finding tips on getting tipsy this spring, you’ve come to the right place. The G&G is here to spill the deets of where you can order Brisbane’s best seasonal sips.

Saké Restaurant | spring cocktail specials

Adding extra cheer (and cherries) to spring is Sake Restaurant’s September series of sakura-themed events! In homage to Japan’s cherry blossom season, Sake has released four gorgeous cocktails that’ll be available all spring long! 

Think aromatic drinks like the fruity Little Geisha (Tanqueray gin, Luxardo Maraschino sour cherry liquer, Amabuki Brewery Pink Lady sake, cranberries, lime juice, strawberry puree, and egg whites) alongside the cherrific Not An Ordinary Cherry, Yozakura, and Cheri Dorinku cocktails. 

The Bowery | Morning Dew

For a tipple that’s truly fresh, look no further than a drop of Morning Dew, courtesy of The Bowery. Make like Twiggy and swing on in to enjoy this delicious cocktail, which is an organic blend of peppered gin, capsicum cordial, basil, and snowpea. 

King Street | King’s Banquet drink specials

Forget about spring cleaning your room, Brisbane! We suggest cleaning out a whole street instead, which is filled with an assortment of pink drinks just waiting to be tried. 

Head into King Street between now and September 28 to enjoy a number of pink-themed tipples from Beerhaüs (Strongbow Blossom Rosé cider on tap), El Camino Cantina (strawberry margaritas), and Fat Dumpling (Senorita cocktail).

Fredericks | Frosty Fruits spritz

This season’s spritzes are coming courtesy of Fredericks, West End’s newest cocktail bar. In paying homage to their namesake, Fredericks Peters of Peter’s Ice Cream Factory, this bar is serving up some seriously smooth spritzes made complete with the funky addition of a Frosty Fruits iceblock! The melt-worthy cocktails don’t stop there – Fredericks also stocks tasty Aperol and cucumber spritzes. 

Customs House Moët Rosé Garden | Moët Rosé Impérial

Don’t bottle up your feelings, Brisbane! Let your worries flow away with help from Customs House’s Moёt Rosé Garden’s reigning drink: Moёt Rosé Impérial champagne! Catch this handsome French champagne, alongside charming cocktails like the garden’s rosé sangria (rosé, Grand Marnier, lime, orange, and soda) on Thursdays to Saturdays from 4pm until late.

Little Valley | Winston Quinn gin 

Ready for a ‘Good Thyme’? Little Valley’s collaboration with Winston Quinn has you covered! In celebrating the creativity of Brisbane’s best bartenders, Little Valley’s Good Thyme cocktail mixes Winston Quinn’s classic ‘skinny jeans’ gin with lemon juice, soaked blueberries, and fragrant thyme.

Which one of these seasonal sips will you be planting yourself in front of today?
