Cock­tail Cor­ner

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - GOODDRINKING -

Bar: HQ Ad­dress: 100 Short­mar­ket Street Con­tact: 021 424 6373 Twit­ter: @HQCAPETOWN Cock­tail: Fig­ments Price: R70 In­gre­di­ents: Don Julio Re­posado tequila, two spoons of fig jam, cloudy ap­ple juice, white wine vine­gar and a fig HEAR ye, hear ye, this is my tequi­l­abased cock­tail pick. HQ barman Al­lan Miselo makes the drink by shak­ing the in­gre­di­ents and serv­ing it on cubed ice, with a crushed ice cap over.

It tastes sweet and sour, and the tequila is ac­cented by the fig flavours. The drink has a healthy dose of tequila which is never a bad thing.

The pop­u­lar steak restau­rant launched its new cock­tail menu two weeks ago, fea­tur­ing spir­its from the World Class range.

On Satur­days, the restau­rant now hosts an event called #HQRe­serve, fea­tur­ing a swing singer do­ing cov­ers of Michael Bublé and oth­ers.

The place is well known for its pre-se­lected steak, chips and salad menu and is of­ten booked out on Mon­days for its two-for-one spe­cial.

The Her­itage Square es­tab­lish­ment now of­fers com­edy on Wed­nes­day nights on a newly cre­ated stage fac­ing the bar.

The bar is open from noon, Mon­days to Satur­days, and its kitchen closes at 10.30pm.

There are two din­ner sit­tings: one at 6pm and the other at 8.30pm. – Wendyl Martin
