If you haven’t ridden the escalator into the heavenly Surfers space that is Steampunk, you’re missing out on not only smoky, creative cocktails but a fantasy-fuelled adventure back in time.
With industrial machinery, copper accents and old school gadgets placed throughout, Steampunk is the perfect visual representation of the (not actually real) Victorian era subgenre after which it’s named.
Anywho the crew, who made the trek from Tassie to hydrate you with magical and mesmerising cocktails, have just introduced a slew of newbies and it’s worth the trek to Surfers to give them a try.
The Foolish Howler is a party in your mouth with Jägermeister, Strawberry, lemon, honey comb, pineapple juice and red liquorish. It’s a smokin’, rainbow sprinkle delight and the perfect tipple to treat yo’self.
The Brass Vengeance has Hendricks Gin, Maraschino, Blueberries, pineapple and Lime and it’s served in an upside down golden pineapple so you’re pretty much guaranteed a good time.
The Pavlowhip is everyone’s favourite Christmas dessert in a tasty tipple with Absolute Vanilla, Licor 43, lemon juice, strawberry, passionfruit and toasted froth (because life’s too short for un-toasted froth).
The Cog Slapper is vodka, sour apple, midori, candy and a little extra sourness topped with a scorched marshmallow and bringing all your sweet, pink cocktail dreams to life.
‘Tis the season. Smoke ’em up ladies.
