Shake things up with Brisbane’s best takeaway cocktails

As we all adapt to enjoy our favourite restaurant meals at home, we can’t forget about our second major vice: cocktails!

Whether you go for a classic concoction or something a little more funky, Brisbane’s top spots for a tipple have you covered for quality sips at home—whether you add a mini umbrella or not is up to you.  


A spot of Pantry Penicillin is just what the doctor ordered, especially when comprised of Glenfiddich 12, ginger, verjus, honey, and Laphroaig 10! Let Alba’s takeaway snacks, meals, and drinks menu make your day, with the likes of Espinaler sardines with jamon bourbon butter, confit garlic, and toasted baguette on offer to accompany. You can order via Bopple here, for pick-up Wednesday-Saturday from 3 pm to 8 pm. 

Rogue Bistro

Four words: salted caramel espresso martini. It’s yours with any food order from Rogue, with a Bloom ‘n’ Tonic, Kickin’ in the Caribbean, and Bloody Mary also on the cards. You can order yours here, seven days a week from 5:30 pm.

Maker x Gauge

Cocktail for two? Don’t mind if we do! Whether you’re sharing or downing a “for two” sip solo, the bergamot and yuzu gin sour, strawberry and marshmallow espresso martini, or classic Negroni from Maker (care of their takeaway collab with neighbouring sibling Gauge) are sure to hit the spot alongside your mod-Australian food. You can order via Gauge’s website here, Wednesday-Sunday.

Same Same

Curry and a cocktail? You don’t need to tell us to hurry! Pair your iconic beef cheek red curry with crispy shallots and lime leaf with a Thai Thai margarita or One Night In Bangkoktail from Same Same for a bangin’ good time. Order by calling 3188 1418 from 3 pm Monday-Thursday, or from midday Friday-Sunday. 


Taco ‘bout a tasty time! We’re talking zesty margs from Baja, of course! Pair your choice of classic or spicy margarita (or white wine sangria) with delicious bites like guac, crispy cauliflower with green chilli yoghurt, and those slow-cooked beef barbacoa tacos! Give the team a bell on 3625 0069, email, or send them a DM on Facebook or Instagram to order yours, 5 pm-9:30 pm, Wednesday through Sunday.

Mama Taco

Where there are tacos, there are cocktails, and Mama Taco (who happened to open right before the pandemic hit), is doing both in style! To accompany your tacos al pastor u carnitas, grab a Camen Miranda Rosita with mezcal, Aperol, Cynar, passionfruit essence, grapefruit bitters and a dehydrated lemon garnish, or the Mama’s margarita with reposado tequila, jalapeno and coconut 1800 tequila, agave, aloe, and citrus with a dehydrated lime garnish. Place your order via 0488 009 694 Wednesday-Sunday from 11 am, or order on Deliveroo, Uber, or Bopple.

Cobbler | Death and Taxes | Savile Row

Everyone has a favourite sibling in this family of world-class cocktail bars, so it’s a good thing you can still get your fix! Cobbler is shaking up the goods between 3 pm and 6 pm daily, Death & Taxes from 2 pm to 6 pm, Wednesday-Saturday, and Savile Row from 3 pm to 7 pm, Thursday-Sunday. *Sips* Ahhhhhhhh.

Forget shaking and stirring—leave it to the experts.
