in partnership with
Mad Hatters looking for a spot to warm up this winter, you're invited to a bottomless G&Tea Party.
Taking over State of Grace's new King Street venue every Saturday from midday, this festivity involves G&Ts served in dainty teapots and teacups. And there's an opportunity to get creative. Firstly, choose one of five gins — classic, marmalade, chamomile, peppercorn and coriander or strawberry and basil. Next up, take your pick of mixers — be it tonic, sparkling grapefruit, ginger beer, bitter lemon or spiced apple.
Matching your tipple will be a selection of afternoon treats, both savoury and sweet. Begin with warm bellinis with Yarra Valley caviar, then tuck into old-school cucumber sandwiches with herb cream and dill. There's also french onion soup toasties with thyme and lemon myrtle, among other delights.
On the dessert menu, you'll find mini doughnuts filled with gin and orange curd or rosemary and thyme sugar. There'll also be gin and sorbet pops with white chocolate, rosemary and bitters.
For $55 a head, you'll be feasting on such delights and drinking bottomless booze — it's sure to be the most raucous tea party you've attended in a while. Doing Dry July? You can opt for some mocktails this month for $40 per person, too.
State of Grace's G&Tea Parties are held every Saturday, from 12pm–2pm. Bookings are recommended and can be made here.
