I am not typically a cocktail drinker. So when Riverbar & Kitchen invited me along to sample their tapas and cocktail menu, I really didn’t know what to expect. Not one to miss an opportunity, I got there and dove headfirst into a Marshmallow Colada! Sailor Jerry, toasted marshmallow, fresh lemon, pineapple juice, coconut …. what a drink! I don’t know if it was the Sailor Jerry talking, but suddenly the cares of the week faded away and I was relaxed, enjoying the fabulous view of the Brisbane River and soaking up the lively atmosphere.
Round two, I ordered a Crimson Blossom. Belvedere citrus, raspberry, fresh lemon, grapefruit juice, passionfruit. Excuse me, I think someone drank my drink, I giggled as my stunned partner wondered how I guzzled it down so fast!
For dinner we enjoyed the Crispy Chicken Wings with chipotle ‘slaw; Salami pizza and Lamb Kofta. All a perfect size to share amongst friends and delicious to boot.
Round three, and I could no longer remember what cocktail I ordered… but it looked fancy and tasted great!
Riverbar & Kitchen is open from 7am – late 7 days a week for breakfast, lunch, dinner, after-work drinks and afternoon drinks on the weekend; and they officially have my vote for cocktails, tapas and an amazing view.
Why not take advantage of the location and book a table for Riverfire on Saturday 27 September? On the night they’ll have live music and there’ll be River Gin Fizz cocktail jugs for ladies and buckets of four local bottled craft beers for the gents at just $25 each.
