Do gelato and cocktails go hand-in-hand? Gelato Messina believes they do. To prove it, Messina has invited Archie Rose Distilling Co to take over its Darlinghurst outpost for three nights from Thursday, May 16 till Saturday, May 18.

The Messina Creative Department head chef Remi Talbot has joined forces with the gin, rum and vodka distillery to bring the shop its next alcoholic pairing in the form of an eight-course (and eight-drink) gelato degustation. And, as you'd expect, it looks insanely tasty — and incredibly creative.

Dishes include foie gras ravioli, beetroot and hibiscus granita, a savoury gelato sandwich served with bouillabaisse and a take on the French dessert paris-brest made with choux pastry, almond and burnt vanilla.

If you've dined at the Creative Department before, you'll know the food doesn't look like standard food, either — it often looks like pieces of art. It'll be the same on these three nights, with the granita served in a delicate pink rock-like bowl and a banana and feijoa dish plated to look like the iconic Andy Warhol banana.

Drinks are equally extra and include the Peach Cobbler, made with sparkling wine and nitrogen frozen peach; the Wattle You Make Of It, with wattleseed, finger lime and black walnut; and a boozy banana milkshake called Little Miss Muffet.

Sessions for these collabs sell out quickly, so, if you'd like to go, we recommend booking in ASAP. It'll cost a pretty penny at $190 per head — but, if you're willing to break the bank for one night of culinary delight, we reckon this one will be worth it.
