Acclaimed mixologist Kurt Schlechter has been brought on board to update the expansive cocktail menu at the Grand Cafe & Beach, crafting new signature cocktails and tweaking the classics.
It’s about getting back to the basics of making drinks properly. We’re always aiming to bring in fresh flavours to classic cocktails, to make them unique to Grand Beach. Juices are all squeezed fresh at the bar, all-natural cocktail syrups come from local producer Nettari, and enormous care has been taken in delicate garnishing of each and every cocktail. – Schlechter.
A perfect example is Grand Beach’s new signature cocktail. Tapping into the global ‘tiki’ trend, the rum-based Grand African Tiki blends Havana Especial & 7, Malibu, mango, mint, thyme and coconut for a memorable cocktail served in a bespoke tiki mug. [see the full cocktail menu]
Alongside the cocktails the wine list taps into a selection of leading Cape estates, and a partnership with G.H. Mumm Champagne will make Grand Africa Café & Beach one of the few local restaurants to serve French bubbly by the glass.
