World Class Cocktail Week may be about celebrating perfect cocktails and those who make them, but it would be remiss of us to ignore the fantastic food also on offer. Here’s a round-up of some of the best dinners, dishes and pairings.

Pizza party at Corbett & Claude
Pizza is the game at Corbett & Claude Brisbane, and from Monday to Wednesday it’s offering your choice of pizza plus your choice of cocktail for $25. Keep it classic with smoked ham and pineapple, or opt for something more adventurous, such as pork and fennel sausage, red cabbage and shaved apple. Both options will pair equally well with the Cloudy with a Chance of Apples cocktail, made with Ketel One vodka, pear liqueur and crushed apples. If you can’t make it, Corbett & Claude Indooroopilly is offering a $15 special on the Sunday of Cocktail Week. All its classic pizzas and its entire range of cocktails will be available for $15 each.

Five-course cocktail degustation at Maker
Maker, known for its seasonal and local produce, native ingredients and attention to detail, is putting on five courses of food and cocktails. It hasn’t released the menu yet, but if the food is anywhere near as exciting as Maker’s regular cocktails (such as Bulleit Bourbon with cherry and burnt butter), this’ll be an event not to miss.

Tanqueray high-tea garden party at Darling & Co.
This is high tea with a twist. All the favourites you’ve come to expect will be there – such as finger sandwiches, citrus melting moments, macarons and little cakes – but in place of cups of hot tea, sip on Tanqueray gin–based iced teas instead.

Smoked Chocolate Manhattan and chocolate-cigar dessert pairing at Stingray
Bourbon semifreddo is encased in dark couverture chocolate and finished with lemon myrtle, a piece of candied bacon and a touch of hickory smoke to create Stingray’s chocolate cigar. It’s matched with a Smoked Chocolate Manhattan, made with Bulleit rye whiskey, cacao liqueur, vermouth and chocolate bitters.

My Thai and tart pairing at Mamasan
Come for Mamasan’s My Thai made with kaffir-lime leaf–infused Pampero Blanco rum, coconut liqueur, pineapple and lime, but stay for its mini passionfruit tart. It’s topped with coconut foam, toasted coconut and a smattering of lime zest, and is a perfect match for the cocktail. It’s available all week, too, so you can try it more than once.
