Cock­tail Cor­ner

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - GOODDRINKING -

Bar: In­side Sports Lounge Ad­dress: 16B Eden on the Bay, Beach Boule­vard, Big Bay Con­tact: 021 554 9652 Cock­tail: In­side Strip Price: R25 In­gre­di­ents: South­ern Com­fort, vodka, amaretto, Mal­ibu rum, pineap­ple juice and crushed ice A SWEET cock­tail may make the fiery cock­tail go down bet­ter. Known for its amaz­ing bunny chows, In­side Sports Lounge is clear that it is also about cock­tails, sport view­ing and beach am­bi­ence.

The drink is made by plac­ing pineap­ple juice and crushed ice into a chilled glass.

Bar­man Ngoni Kafesu then shakes a dash of each of the spir­its to­gether and strains the mix­ture over the pineap­ple juice. Fi­nally, he gar­nishes with a cherry and an or­ange slice.

Two dis­tinct lay­ers are vis­i­ble when the drink is served, with the spirit mix sit­ting at the top – thin­ner and more trans­par­ent.

The com­bi­na­tion of flavours tasted a bit like liquorice.

Al­though In­side Lounge spe­cialises in cur­ries, in­clud­ing a Dur­ban va­ri­ety, piz­zas and tamer fare are also avail­able.

Fol­low­ing the clo­sure of its Ke­nil­worth branch, In­side Lounge has opened a new branch a few kilo­me­tres south of Eden on the Bay.

In­side on Fire is now open at 5 Marine Cir­cle in Blou­berg. It is more of a party bar, of­fer­ing bring and braai fa­cil­i­ties and pool ta­bles. Curry is not on the menu.

The restau­rant Eden on the Bay of­fers free wi-fi and is open from 9am to 2am daily. Wed­nes­days is ladies’ night, with dis­counts on food and SAB drinks.

It also has a two-for-one cock­tail spe­cial dur­ing lunch from Mon­days to Thurs­days. – Wendyl Martin
