Ah, there’s nothing quite like the first sip of a hot beverage when temperatures reach below 20 degrees (that’s basically Brisbane’s version on Antarctica, really). Without further ado, let us present you with five bevvies you’ll want to get your hands on this winter at South Bank.
Peanut Butter Italian Hot Chocolate, Denim Co.
Look, we don’t think you’ll need too much convincing on this one because you probably love peanut butter as much as we do. This delicacy from Denim Co. combines lashings of delicious peanut butter with creamy chocolate to create a balanced drink, that is the equivalent to a big ol’ warm hug.
Dark n’ Stormy, Barbossa Bar
Oh, for the love of smoked rum. One sip of this, and you’re guaranteed to be taken out of your winter hibernation. Featuring smoked rum, lime and ginger beer, this drink is guaranteed to warm you up from the inside out.
OTT Hot Chocolate, Max Brenner
This certainly isn’t your regular hot chocolate. Supersized of sorts, this bad boy is filled to the brim with a chocolate gooey marshmallow pillow and served with whipped cream and crunchy waffle balls. This will certainly become a staple on our winter diet.
Turkish Apple Tea, Ahmet’s
We don’t know the exact person who first brought Turkish apple tea to the shores of Australia but boy, are we glad they did. Nothing is sweeter in winter than this. Our tip? Enjoy on a lazy grey afternoon with a side of their fragrant Turkish delight sprinkled with rose petals.
Salted Caramel Espresso Martini, South Bank Beer Garden
Espresso martini’s, AKA the dark horse of the cocktail world. This one from South Bank Beer Garden is the perfect accompaniment to the harsh winter weather. Not only does it provide you with that whole dark and mysterious salted caramel allure as you drink it, but will also provide you with a much needed ‘kick-start,’ courtesy of the caffeine hit so you can enjoy the night ahead.
