The Black Opal 

​Created ​

by Jacques Bezuidenhout

1 ½ oz Partida Reposado
1 ½  oz Guinness Draft
½ oz Tawny Port
¼ oz Agave Nectar (Cut with equal parts water)
Dash of Angostura Bitters



Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled wine glass or small pint glass without ice. Garnish with some grated or ground cinnamon powder.
Guinness Note: Take a pint of Guinness before hand and use a bar spoon to stir it up for about 30 secs. This removes some of the Co2.


Amarula Springbox Shooter

½ oz Amarula cream liqueur
½ oz peppermint liqueur



Pour the peppermint liqueur into shot glass. Using a spoon held against the side of the shot glass, pour the amarula onto the spoon, thus floating the amarula ontop of the peppermint liqueur.


L’avant Scène


 by Johan LeJeune, Fouquet’s Paris

2 oz. Calvados Lecompte 5 years old
½  fresh kiwi
1/3 oz. of kiwi syrup*
3 drops of grapefruit bitters
2 drops of aromatic poppy



In a cocktail shaker muddle fresh kiwi, add ice and remaining ingredients to shaker. Shake vigorously, double strain in to a Martini glass and garnish with kiwi slice.

*kiwi syrup: In a pot combine equal parts water and sugar, cube 2 fresh kiwi and add to mix. Bring mixture to a boil and reduce to simmer until sugar is dissolved. Double strain syrup in to an airtight bottle and refrigerate.



St. Patrick’s Surprise

1oz.  G’Vine Floraison gin
½oz. blue curacao liqueur

¼oz. white creme de cacao liqueur

1½oz. freshly squeezed orange juice


Foam: 1 egg white and ¼oz. white creme de cacao – makes enough foam for 4 St. Patrick’s Surprises.


Make the foam by adding the eggwhite and creme de cacao to an ISI whipped-cream canister and charging it with an NO2 capsule. Chill it in the fridge for an hour or so.

Shake the other ingredients with ice and strain into an 8 oz beer glass.

Using the whipped-cream canister, carefully squirt a layer of foam on top of the drink, to resemble the “head” on a pint of green Guinness.
