Cock­tail Cor­ner

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - GOODDRINKING -

Bar: Mex­i­can Kitchen Ad­dress: 13 Bloem Street 021 423 0541 Cock­tail: Mex­i­can Zombi Price: R35 Ingredients: two shots of Ha­vana dark rum, granadilla syrup, eight shots of orange juice, a splash of Stroh rum and orange zest for gar­nish­ing. BE AWARE. Be aware. The Mex­i­can Zombi is as lethal as the name im­plies. The po­tent po­tion has a gen­er­ous, yet well dis­guised, serv­ing of Stroh rum.

Bar­man Lu­ciano Sau­ramba de­scribes the drink as both built and shaken. He shakes orange juice with the Ha­vana rum, then pours it over ice, adds the Stroh rum “splash” and then gar­nishes with orange zest and a fruit wheel.

Mex­i­can Kitchen owner Joshua Stry­dom de­scribed it as a “drinker’s drink”. “It is pop­u­lar with young peo­ple and stu­dents. It’s a strong drink, not a joke,” he says.

Mex­i­can Kitchen is lo­cated just off Long Street, on a cor­ner close enough for a de­tour up the street dur­ing one of those epic pub crawls.

Puffers can do their busi­ness at the out­side ta­bles. There is no Wifi.

Mex­i­can Kitchen is open seven days a week from 9.30am to late. Drinks are served from 1.30pm. Happy Hour is from 2pm to 6pm dur­ing which cock­tails are R21. A dis­count of 20 per­cent ap­plies with a stu­dent card. – Wendyl­martin
