Can you think of a better scenario than sitting across from the ocean, under a canopy of trees lined with fairy lights, with a warm glass of mulled wine? We didn't think so.
This winter, head on down to Mooloolaba Esplanade for exactly that. Situated out the front of the intimate wine bar Frank + Lotti, a pop-up drinks station will be serving mulled Italian wine by the glass, to a soundtrack of live music and crashing waves.
For those who aren’t fans of mulled wine, there’s also creamy ‘spiked’ hot chocolates on offer, complete with a shot of your favourite liquor and laden with fresh whipped cream.
You’ll be perched outdoors, around tables or wine barrels, so make sure you rug up because the Sunshine Coast’s weather is finally cooling down in a big way.
Don’t stress though, while you are kicking back beachfront, they’ll be serving everything you need to warm you all the way up. Plus, there’s heaters and the occasional fire pit for added toastiness.
If you get peckish after downing a couple of wines, head inside to the dimly lit restaurant and bar to snack on perfectly-cooked pizza or a plate of cured meats and cheese.
Taking place from 4pm, every Thursday to Saturday, this has got to be one of the best things to do on the Sunshine Coast this winter.
When: Every Thursday to Sunday, from 4pm
Where: Frank + Lotti, Shop 14/13 Mooloolaba Esplanade, Mooloolaba
Cost: $10 for mulled wine, $12 ‘spiked’ hot chocolate
