Sunday Potts Point Is Heating Thing Up With This Limited-Edition Fireball Cobbler

Eat, Sydney / 21 July 2021

Fireball Whisky & Sunday Potts Point have teamed up to create Sydney’s booziest dessert, and they’ve even dropped the recipe!

If you’re anything like me, you usually consume Fireball from a 30ml glass and it follows a drunken night out at Freda’s. Apart from its ability to improve your dance moves, this cinnamon-infused whisky has incredible powers to warm you from the inside out. With winter currently proving it’s our least favourite season, we could all do with a little something to keep us warm.

Let us introduce you to Sydney’s booziest dessert, the Fireball Cobbler. The rebellious team from Fireball Whisky has partnered with what was our favourite Sunday pastime, Sunday Potts Point, to create the ultimate whisky-infused dessert, guaranteed to keep you feeling fuzzy and warm in lockdown. For two weeks only, adults (18+) will be able to sink their teeth into this limited edition cobbler featuring sweet pops of rhubarb and seasonal blood orange, vanilla, pear, ground ginger to keep away that pesky flu, and Fireball spiked butterscotch sauce. Think grandma’s humble crumble, but way better and boozier.

The legends at Fireball are even throwing in a free mini Fireball bottle with every cobbler purchase so you can wash down your cake the right way. And for those looking to keep the fire burning, as Gwen McCrae would say, you can get a 10 pack of Fireball minis for an extra $40.

“For me, there’s nothing more tempting than a warm cobbler. So, we created something special that’ll not only warm the hearts of Sydney-siders during these tough times but also help keep things spicy thanks to our mates at Fireball,” says Morgan McGlone (Sunday Potts Point & Belles Hot Chicken).

So how do you get your hands on this limited edition dessert? Fireball fanatics can get it delivered to their door from this Friday, 23rd of July. If you’d prefer to work off the cake before you eat it, you can pick up your sweet serve from Sunday Potts Point. There are only 100 available each week – run, don’t walk.
