It’s the boozy food mashup we deserve, but also the one we need right now. Frozen American custard mixed with spirits and chocolate and topped with fairy floss and edible flowers. Because why the hell not, that’s why.
American Tex Mex burger bar, Chiquito & Co, opened earlier in the year, and concrete (frozen custard) has always been on the menu. But now that summer’s here, the bar decided to release a limited edition range of concrete cocktails—boozy dessert goblets with enough calories to slay an elephant.
If you hadn’t guessed, we’re pretty excited.
You can get the cocktails all day long, but we recommend swinging by during Happy Hour (4pm–6pm daily), when you can score them for just $5 (low, even by Happy Hour standards). Our pick? The white chocolate lime daiquiri is hard to beat, but Toblerone and Ferrero Rocher are pretty ridiculous too. And of course, there's always the Gaytime: salty caramel fudge, Bacardi, a lug of butterscotch schnapps, Baileys, choc fudge, official Gaytime crumbs and Vanilla frozen custard. You're gonna need bigger pants...
And hey, if you order a double beef burger to go with, no-one’s gonna judge. Hell, we’ll be proud. You do you, Melbourne.
