The Peached Tortilla wowed foodies at South by Southwest with towering milkshakes piled high with brightly colored desserts like cotton candy, lollipops and doughnuts. After so much success with them, the restaurant’s event space, the Peached Social House, hosted a pop-up in April with all new ones inspired partially by breakfast.
And now, for those of us who missed out those first two times, there’s going to be yet another million-calorie mega-milkshake bonanza on June 4.
This pop-up, like the April one, will probably sell out — and you must have tickets to get a taste of it. What’s different about this time? It’s a collaboration with pastry chef Janina O’Leary, formerly of La V and Trace, who specializes in fluffy, insanely good doughnuts that show up at pop-ups around town from time to time.
Her doughnuts will top the Peached Tortilla milkshakes, which dessert lovers can taste from 12 to 3 p.m. on June 4 for $19. She will have what she calls her Play Dough pastries paired with them, too.
The milkshakes have been newly created for the collaboration and include the Blueberry in a Glazed State, with strawberry ice cream, graham crackers, caramel and a berry-glazed doughnut (paired with a peach poppy seed pop-tart) and the I Drink Your Milkshake, with chocolate ice cream, crushed pretzels and a malted milk chocolate doughnut (paired with Nutella swirl coffee cake).
At the pop-up, slurp down your milkshake or choose another liquid treat. The Peached Tortilla is again offering the Birthday Cake Mimosa, a popular cocktail at the last milkshake pop-up, with Frangelico, vodka, grenadine and brut. It’ll be topped with Janina’s matcha-pistachio baby cake with strawberry buttercream and paired with an Everything cookie.
Still don’t feel like your sweet tooth will be satisfied? O’Leary will also have other pastries at the pop-up that you can purchase a la carte.
Get your tickets for the pop-up this weekend at this Eventbrite link. Note that the two milkshake options are both $19 and the mimosa with a cookie are $17. The event will be at Peached Social House, at 6500 N. Lamar Blvd. Ste D.
