If there's an occasion to celebrate, W Brisbane's resident bar wants in on the action, theming its high-tea spread around different times of the year. Now that the festive season is upon us, it's switching to an appropriately merry offering. If you like drinking Christmas-themed cocktails while tucking into tiny bites to eat, then add Living Room to your list.

On the menu for 2022's Festive High Tea: wagyu pies with with Spanish onion and port wine jus, smoked trout in shortcrust pastry with heirloom cherry tomatoes and dill mayo, black forest Christmas baubles, gingerbread mousse with almond joconde sandwich, and pistachio wreaths with lemon olive oil sponge and basil gel. And yes, there's scones as well — a classic number with vanilla nutmeg and rosemary, then served with jam and cream.

That's an impressive, tastebud-tempting range; however, you'll probably get most excited about the boozy side of things — including a 'First White Christmas' cocktail made with Absolut vanilla vodka, Frangelico and macadamia nut orgeat, then topped with an aromatic bubble.

And, the high tea also includes building your own gingerbread house. 'Tis the season, after all.

Yes, it's time to chose your pals best in need of a Xmas treat, then make a date — this high tea is on offer from 11am–3pm Friday–Sunday until Saturday, December 24.

Price-wise, you have three options. Pay $65 each, and you'll feast your way through the food like you're Santa on Christmas Eve, and sip endless tea and barista-made coffee. Opt for the $90 option, and you can add one of those aforementioned cocktails. And for $98, you'll also get a glass of Veuve Clicquot champagne.

Make a date on a Saturday afternoon, too, and there'll be a DJ spinning festive tunes from 2pm.
