Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - GOODDRINKING -

Bar: Le Roi Beach Bar 104 The Prom­e­nade, Vic­to­ria Road, Camps Bay Con­tact: 021 437 1791 Cock­tail: Pressed Ap­ple Margarita Twit­ter: @LeRoiBeachBar Price: R45/R65 (de­pend­ing on choice of tequila) In­gre­di­ents: a dou­ble shot of Jose Cuervo Black or Don Julio tequila, fresh ap­ple juice, mint, Coin­treau triple sec and a squeeze of le­mon BRING me more tequila, it’s sum­mer and it’s my right.

Le Roi Beach Bar owner Dale Parker makes the drink by plac­ing the in­gre­di­ents in a Bos­ton shaker with ice and dou­ble strain­ing into a Cham­pagne coupe.

It is a murky drink and not too sweet, mak­ing it a good choice for those who pre­fer to sip on grown-up cock­tails.

Le Roi Beach Bar opened last month and is de­scribed by owner Parker as hav­ing a “retro-slick” theme. Hang­ing bub­ble chairs com­plete the look and make for fun, swing­ing seat­ing.

Its Face­book page says the bar is in­spired by the “vi­brant pal­ette of Tretchikoff’s work”. The artist’s Miss Wong and The Lady from Ori­ent are fo­cal points to keep you com­pany while you en­joy the bar.

The bar is in a good lo­ca­tion to take in a Camps Bay sun­set. It is is non-smok­ing and wi-fi is free.

There are per­form­ing DJs at night play­ing house mu­sic.

Le Roi Beach Bar is open from Tues­days to Sun­days, from 4pm to 2am. – Wendyl Martin
