Cocktails by Lisa never disappoint. Even the wacky and weird come out on top.

Lisa is always a source of inspiration. If you’ve read our Lychee Margarita Recipe, you’ll have just a small window into the wonderful and wacky world of Lisa, and her highly recommended cocktail.

A newly acquired art piece awaits me each time I visit. This time around I was greeted by ‘Lady’ a pastel coloured ceramic bust. And what goes down well with a visit to the home gallery? Well, a new cocktail of course! The Japanese Slipper was a hot number in Lisa's kitchen.

Surrounded by new art additions - a life-size screen print of icons from the 80s, a ceramic boob emerging from the wall and a delicate sculpture of a dandelion - this cocktail is the perfect appetizer, or in my case, the full 3 courses.

The immediate response to a photo sent to Sophie? “What on earth is that nuclear shit?” followed quickly by, “I trust Lisa.” So if you’re looking for a party trick, pouring one of these may raise a few eyebrows!

We’ve got to give credit where credit is due - the Japanese Slipper was created by Jean-Paul Bourguignon from Meitta, Melbourne. In saying that, it's fair game, and there is always room to ‘Lisa’-up a cocktail I think!

A small disclaimer - Lisa and myself only recommend having two of these max! By the time we were 3 ½ deep, we had passed the sweet spot. For me personally anyway, I don’t drink often so it went straight to the head! My advice? Switch to a weaker cocktail to finish off.
