W Brisbane is currently serving up a slice of everyone’s favourite European holiday destination, inviting locals and interstate guests to sip on an Aperol Spritz from its riverside location, igniting some seriously Mediterranean summer vibes. Get ready for an exclusive menu curated by Pasta Queen (and MasterChef Australia alumni) Laura Sharrad, paired with the perfect summer tipple created by the iconic aperitif’s expert mixologists.
Inspired by the sea, delicious bites will include hand-Picked Mud Crab & Pickled Cucumber Fingers and the decadent Gnocco Fritto with Whipped Cod Roe, with Sharrad curating a menu that heroes Queensland’s fresh seasonal produce.
For drinks, Insta-worthy cocktails from the lord of the Spritz, including the refreshing Aperol Spritz, have been created to pair perfectly with the dishes to set the scene. To cleanse the palette, a fresh and bold combination of Campari & Blood Orange Granita with Yoghurt Gelato will be a sweet dream.
W Brisbane’s Level Four oasis has been transformed into an Italian playground with umbrellas and sun lounges for guests to sit back, relax and sip on an Aperol Spritz – think oranges and lemons oozing from their baskets, olive trees reminiscent of the cobblestone streets of Italy.
To top it all off, W Brisbane are giving two lucky people and their plus-ones the chance to win a private cooking class with Laura. After lapping up her skills, winners can tantalise their taste buds and enjoy the fruits of their labour with lunch on WET Deck, all whilst taking in the stellar river views.
Better still, you can always continue the summer vibes with an ultimate Brissie staycation in one of the snazzy suites of W Brisbane.
