Cock­tail Cor­ner

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - GOODDRINK -

Bar: Tobago’s Ad­dress: Radis­son Blu, Beach Road, Granger Bay, Water­front 021 441 3415 Cock­tail: Pas­sion­ate and Mint Daiquiri Price: R65 In­gre­di­ents: Pas­sion fruit purée, fresh mint, fresh granadilla pulp, a scoop of ice, granadilla juice and a dou­ble shot of Ha­vana Blanco rum TOBAGO’S is a hid­den gem of a bar, at a Water­front venue that is of­ten missed. Barman Hein­rich la Meyer says the Pas­sion­ate and Mint Daiquiri is made in a blender and gar­nished with a sprig of mint and a slice of granadilla with the skin. It’s served in a tall hur­ri­cane glass with two straws.

The fruit flavours flow well through the ice. A whack of mint hits your nose as you sip… per­haps sip a lit­tle slower with to avoid brain freeze. The al­co­hol is masked well, but if you are look­ing for a “vir­gin”, that ver­sion of the drink is avail­able too.

La Meyer says the drink has been on the cock­tail menu for two sum­mer sea­sons due to pop­u­lar de­mand.

Tobago’s is a gor­geous venue, com­plete with good sea views and a sprawl­ing deck. The colours of the bar are mostly blue and white, in line with the sea views and deck pool. There is live mu­sic on the deck on Fri­days from 6pm and com­pli­men­tary wi-fi through­out the ho­tel.

Tobago’s is open from 11am daily. It has fea­tured cock­tails of the month and a new bar plat­ter menu on the way. See www.face­book.com/ radis­son­blucpt or fol­low @Radis­sonBlu_Cpt on Twit­ter for up­dates. – Wendyl Martin
