This high tea is very high indeed. Sazerac Bar at Four Points is Brisbane's highest bar at 30 levels above street level. And the bonus with this special Mother's Day event is that $2 from every ticket purchased for this high tea will go to the McGrath Foundation. Mum can wear pink and partake of the goodies on a high tea stand, together with tea or coffee and a glass of either watermelon blush martini or a premium red or white wine or non-alcoholic pink grapefruit punch.
