Enjoy Summer sundowners at The Table Bay hotel
Summer sundowners are inspiring at Cape Town’s Best Address, The Table Bay hotel, where the emphasis on creating warm and authentic South African experiences is woven into everything; from locally inspired dishes to innovative cocktails.
Specialist Cocktails and Summer Sundowners at The Union Bar
Guests can savour sweeping views of the V&A Waterfront, the harbour and Table Mountain while sipping on specialist cocktails, carefully curated to complement the season. A speciality at The Union Bar is the Elderflower Martini; a refreshing mix of Tanqueray Gin; Elderflower syrup; freshly squeezed lime, mint and fresh pineapple juice. The cocktail is shaken cold, fine strained and served in a chilled Martini glass.
“This is a lovely refreshing, sipping cocktail that tends to be very popular amongst the ladies. It’s summery and floral but balanced with amazing fresh zestiness and botanicals from the Gin,” says Heinrich La Meyer, Assistant Food and Beverage Manager.
The hotel’s barmen are encouraged to explore with fresh ingredients and liquor combinations to bring exciting twists to age-old favourites and offer guests the delight of something new.
