Cock­tail Cor­ner

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - GOODDRINKING -

Bar: Trinity Lounge Ad­dress: 15 Ben­nett Street Con­tact: 021 418 0624 Cock­tail: Choco­late mar­tini Price: R40 Twit­ter: @Trinity Cape Town Ingredients: One shot of Frangelico, a shot of vodka, milk and choco­late syrup. IF CHOCO­LATE be the food of love, why not drink it too? Trinity bar­man Felly Yumba says he shakes all the ingredients to­gether for the choco­late mar­tini and then strains it. It is then gar­nished with more choco­late syrup.

I could taste a lot of vodka, but this was well bal­anced with a smooth choco­late taste.

“It’s a pop­u­lar drink with ladies af­ter they eat,” says Yumba.

Trinity has an in­dus­trial feel to it with face­brick walls and a metal stair­case lead­ing to loft lev­els, and is lo­cated in an in­dus­trial look­ing part of Green Point. It hosts live mu­sic events in­clud­ing big band shows, open mic nights and club nights on Wed­nes­days, Fri­days and Satur­days.

There is a rooftop gar­den where you can smoke; you can also smoke in their VIP area.

Drinks are sold from noon to mid­night and later on club nights.

It’s an el­e­gant and quiet spot for a day­time drink and a great party spot on club nights.

Se­lected cock­tails are half price from 4pm to 7pm. – Wendyl­martin
