Back in the bad old days of Prohibition, clandestine bars would hide the hooch in teapots and serve the hard stuff in bone china cups.
Take up today’s Big Deal on an Intoxicating Tea Party for two at Mama San @ Saint Judes and you can relive the decadent thrill of such cloak and dagger behaviour without running the risk of a police bust and a five stretch on Rikers Island.
Available Thursday to Saturday, this decadent deal is for two people to enjoy a cocktail-filled vintage teapot and a cake stand packed with gourmet goodies at the stylish Mama San @ Saint Judes on Bath Street.
The vintage teapot will be filled with your choice of cocktail from Saint Judes’ bespoke Teatime Martini menu.
Each pot holds enough lovely liquor for two people to enjoy two cups of cocktail each.
The cocktails are wicked enough but, for a truly sinful afternoon, feast your eyes on the Intoxicating Tea Party cake stand.
Packed with artisan cupcakes, fresh fruit tarts, scones topped with lashings of cream and jam; rich chocolate brownies and dainty finger sandwiches, this is a cake stand that would tempt a saint from the straight and narrow.
The Intoxicating Tea Parties at Saint Judes have plenty of happy fans. This is what one party goer had to say on TripAdvisor:
‘Brilliant tea party. I booked a St Judes intoxicating tea party for my 40th birthday party. We had a private room at the back of the hotel and lots of fun was had by all. The cocktails in tea pots were a hit and the afternoon tea itself was delicious!!’
