The Peached Tortilla’s last milkshake pop-up was one of our favorite things to do in Austin in April. In case you missed it, you have another chance to try the most Instagram-worthy dessert in the city.
This time around, The Peached Tortilla has teamed up with renowned pastry chef Janina O’Leary (formerly of La V, Per Se, and Del Posto and currently of Play Dough Pop Up). In collaboration with Janina, The Peached Tortilla has curated two unique milkshakes – each topped with one of Janina’s famous doughnuts. The Birthday Cake Mimosa is back as well, now featuring a piece of Janina’s homemade cake.
This pop up is exclusively ticketed. Tickets include one specialty curated milkshake or birthday cake mimosa plus a specific pastry pairing. Additional Play Dough treats may be purchased à la carte.
