Cocktail Menu

With one of the most diverse craft cocktail menu’s in Melbourne, Polly’s Cocktail menu has something for everyone.

Polly’s Happily Ever After cocktail has been on our menu, unchanged since we opened in almost 18 years ago. A sweet combination of vanilla vodka, raspberry liqueur, apple schnapps, cranberry juice & vanilla syrup. Served with a heart shaped lollipop, it’s fairy floss in a glass.

We also have a mocktail menu below our cocktail menu for those that still want to indulge.

Most of our cocktails can either be made vegan or are already vegan, view our vegan cocktails.
