Rhapsody’s Rose (Rose Petal Martini)
Delicately yours, take off your rose-coloured glasses and taste this liqueur
infused with Skyy vodka, splashed with cranberry juice, and guaranteed
to make you blush.
You don‟t have to be in the heart of Florence or Milan to enjoy this sultry
combination of Monin Macadamia, Frangelico, Amaretto and splash of
cranberry juice. Served shaken and strained, this‟ll have you smooth-talking
in no time!
Fast Fact: Did you know that Macadamia nuts are closely associated with Hawaii because Hawaii is the
largest exporter of Macadamia nuts, providing ninety-five percent of the world's crop? Yet the nut is
actually native to Australia and comes from a tree that was originally grown for ornamental purposes.
The tree was only introduced to Hawaii in 1880 where it thrived in the tropical environment, and in the
States, California now also produces a sizable Macadamia nut crop.
Cheeky Kiwi Martini
Putting a fruity spin on the modernised Skyy vodka martini, we add
syrupy Monin Kiwi flavouring, cheeky pineapple, and lemon-twist it up to
keep you from going down under!
Strange & barely related fact: Did you know that there was a Japanese / American glam rock band
named “Vodka Collins”, who was based in Tokyo, Japan in the 1970s? The Vodka Collins cocktail
however is served with club soda, lemon juice, vodka, sugar and cherry garnish.
Strawberry Vanilla Collins
A seemingly innocent treat, you‟ll have to cool off Collins-style with this
fresh strawberry and beloved Monin Vanilla delight that‟s thrown together
with Skyy vodka, and indulged with lemon to gleefully finish it off.
“Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.”
Humphrey Bogart, “Casablanca”
Harvey Wallbanger
A refreshing mix of Skyy vodka, orange juice and Galliano Liqueur is served
straight up. It is said that in California in the late 60‟s, a surfer named Harvey
lost a surfing contest, and so drowned his sorrows in his favourite drink – a
Screwdriver spiked with Galliano – at his regular bar. After one too many, he
stumbled out the bar, banging into the walls and furniture in the process! He
was thus nicknamed Harvey “Wallbanger” soon after, and his drink too became
staggeringly infamous!
This modern classic is synonymous with the girls from “Sex and the City”,
and our combination of Skyy vodka, Butlers Triple Sec, cranberry juice
and a dash of lime make it just as sophisticated, sexy and irresistible!
A characteristic cocktail celebrating the acquired taste of great Mexican
tequila, although this classic‟s exact origins are hazy, it is said that back
in the fifties a Texan socialite named Margarita Sames was mixing drinks
for her guests at a party in Mexico, when she stumbled across this taste
sensation. We‟ll use our finest Silver Tequila and give you the options of
plain or frozen, and plain or coloured blue by adding Blue Curaçao!
Pronounced “moh-HEE-toe”, this Cuban-based cocktail is a popular choice
at contemporary nightlife destinations throughout the world. Smooth and
sultry, with a minty-fresh aroma, we add Bacardi light rum to our muddled
mint leaves, lime and sugar. Topping it off with soda and a dash of bitters
on crushed ice, we then garnish with a fresh sprig of mint.
Strawberry Daiquiri
Always a sure thing, our combination of Bacardi light rum, Butlers
Strawberry, fresh strawberry pulp, lime and sour-mix is blended to
perfection and served refreshingly ice-cold.
Pina Colada
A true tropical island delight which is synonymous with summer, this
classic cocktail is made with our finest Bacardi light rum, Malibu,
pineapple juice and then blended with velvety cream to give it that
carefree Caribbean finish.
Fast Fact: The so-called Pina Colada song is actually called “Escape” and sung by Rupert Holmes…so
if you like Pina Coladas…and getting caught in the rain…!
Mai Tai
Supposedly meaning “the best” in Tahitian, many have claimed to have
founded this awesome blend of Bacardi light rum, Red Heart rum, Butlers
Triple Sec, Amaretto, lime and sour-mix. But Victor Bergeron of American
restaurant Trader Vic‟s lays claim like no one else, and links his invention
to the fifties era with aplomb! We garnish ours with mint leaves and lime just
as we should.
Ideal for summer, this original and sensuous Brazilian cocktail is simple
yet effective. We serve our cane with a little sugar and some lime wedges
on the rocks, and leave it up to you to gently muddle your mixture uniquely
according to taste.
Fast Fact: In 2003 the Brazilian president issued a decree for intellectual property rights to protect the
name “Caipirinha” as strictly Brazilian in origin - it is still pending.
I never have more than one drink before dinner. But I do like that one to be large and very strong and
very cold and very well-made.”
James Bond, “Casino Royale”
Classic Martini
With Prohibition in America in the twenties, and gin being easy and cheap
to produce, the Martini‟s status was elevated, thus cementing this iconic
American cocktail into bartending history. Our original, top quality gin-based
Martini is chilled with dry vermouth, shaken or stirred and then strained and
served straight up in a chilled cocktail glass with the traditional olive garnish.
Fast Fact: Having your Martini shaken supposedly „bruises‟ the gin as the shaking breaks the ice and
adds more water to the gin, thus altering and sharpening its taste. You can also try our Supreme Classic
Martini with a splash of Bombay Sapphire for only R29.90!
Vodka Martini
This modern but rather controversial Skyy vodka substitution was made
popular in the nineties, and is made exactly the same way as the original
gin-based Martini. It is a notorious variation because of its success in slyly
overcoming the Classic Martini in popularity and stature – making it worthy
as a tasty vodka-based option.
Fast Fact: James Bond‟s drink of choice was actually a Vesper, named after his love interest in Ian
Fleming‟s “Casino Royale”. Made up of vodka, gin and the French Lillet aperitif, it isn‟t the „shaken – not
stirred‟ classic we had in mind!
White Chocolate Martini
A decadent adaptation of the Chocolate Martini – we combine Frangelico,
White Cacao and fresh cream, and serve it shaken and strained in the classic
Martini glass.
“I love a Martini – but two at the most. Three, I‟m under the table; four, I‟m under the host.”
Dorothy Parker
Sweet Martini
Going against the traditional and popular style of the drier the Martini the
better, we offer you the sweet option with gin and sweet red vermouth, and
then garnish it with a Maraschino cherry.
“Why don‟t you get out of those wet clothes and into a dry martini?”
Mae West
Fast Fact: A Churchill Martini is named after Sir Winston Churchill, British Prime Minister in 1940 during
World War I. He reportedly liked his Gin Martini so dry, that he added no vermouth at all, and instead
bowed respectfully in the direction of France (one of the other Allies in the War, and where vermouth
hailed from) before pouring his very strong Martini, and toasting “Never surrender!”
Rhapsody Blue
Our signature cocktail not to be missed! Includes a bold blend of Bacardi
light rum light rum, Skyy vodka, Seagram‟s gin, Butlers Blue Curaçao,
lemonade and finished off with sour-mix to smoothly and proudly complete our creation.
Rhapsody’s Taxi-Cab
Let us get you there with our blend of fresh cranberry and pineapple juice,
gently spiked with banana liqueur, Skyy vodka, Malibu and Southern Comfort.
Rhapsody Rainbow
Our more colourful signature cocktail, we make the South African
rainbow nation a more Rhapsody‟s-inspired one! It includes Southern
Comfort, Skyy vodka, with some tasty orange juice and Grenadine. It‟s
then topped off with our frozen Butlers Blue Curaçao concoction.
Long Island Iced Tea
Hailing from Long Island, New York, this refreshing classic cocktail is based
with five spirits and is not for the faint-hearted. The combinations of Skyy
vodka, gin, Butlers Triple Sec, tequila, and Bacardi light rum should be
enough to keep any sane person away, but once it‟s topped with sour-mix
and good ol‟ Coca Cola it‟s surprisingly irresistible.
Barman’s Speedrail
Not for the faint-hearted, but nevertheless tasty, this potent tall cooler
contains the barman‟s dangerous selection of spirits, including Bacardi
light rum, Red Heart rum, Skyy vodka, gin, Southern Comfort, Martell VO
brandy, Butlers Triple Sec and Butlers Blue Curaçao. To ease the pain, we
top this rebel cocktail off with red Grapetizer.
Miami Vice
An extremely popular fruity combination of the more famous Strawberry
Daiquiri and the Pina Colada, this cocktail is luscious and does not hold
back in flavour!
Woo Woo
Our variation on this funky cocktail adds red Grapetizer into the mix with
the Skyy vodka, Archers and orange juice to guarantee an easy-going
cocktail for any occasion.
Screaming Multiple Orgasm
This original Skyy vodka, Cape Velvet, Kahlua and Amaretto blend
is splashed with velvety cream, garnished with cherries and is an obvious
favourite amongst the ladies (the eternal optimists). Management takes
no responsibility for over-indulgence and slips and falls incurred thereafter.
Red Bull, Skyy vodka, Archers and cranberry juice; this combination
will help you lift your game when it‟s most needed – designed to get you
in the mood.
Long Island Ice Bull
Red Bull combined with Skyy vodka, Gordon‟s gin, Butlers Triple Sec,
tequila and Bacardi light rum offers surprisingly irresistible twist on the
