Cocktail of the Month - Purple Butterfly - Pawpaw Cafe
Pawpaw Cafe in Woolloongabba is presenting our Cocktail of the Month.
Hidden away in the leafy streets of Woolloongabba, but no secret to Brisbane’s food-lovers, you’ll find Pawpaw Café.
Pawpaw is famous for all day breakfasts, creative lunches and mouth-watering Thai-inspired dinners. It’s easy to while away an evening in one of Pawpaw’s three airy, Bali-chic dining rooms with a cocktail in hand, feasting on the delectable seasonally changing menu.
We spent a lovely afternoon with Keira Maclachlan, the woman behind Pawpaw’s delicious cocktails. Check out Keira’s Ink Gin creation below - it’s simple, floral and seriously delicious.
