Date: 9 Dec - 13 Jan
Venue: La Petite Ferme, Franschhoek
Everyone’s favourite weekday has just perked up thanks to the launch of #FestiveFriday at Franschhoek’s La Petite Ferme. Featuring a fresh selection of hand-crafted cocktails and arguably the best views across the valley, La Petite Ferme is now the place to be for sundowners this summer.
#FestiveFriday takes place on selected Fridays from 9 December 2016 until 13 January 2017, when cocktails and bites will be served from 4-6pm in the beautifully manicured gardens of La Petite Ferme to the dulcet tunes of live musicians. Seeking to avoid run-of-the-mill and showcase the farm and its own produce, La Petite Ferme set about creating a menu of vibrant #FestiveFriday cocktails:
• The Pretty Lisa was inspired by a La Petit Ferme legend with service of three decades and who still shines. Made with vodka and amongst others strawberries, lime juice, lemonade and fresh basil, The Pretty Lisa is as vibrant and welcoming as the real Mona Lisa’s smile.
• The Mariano is La Petite Ferme’s very own exotic cocktail with Latin pizzazz. A vodka-spangled blitz of berries adorns this drink along with mango and lime juice and fresh mint.
• The Spa is the perfect cocktail to slow-sip while taking in nature’s most magical spectacle. Named for the restorative fresh cucumber juice that is its main ingredient, The Spa uses a base of gin along with lime juice, fresh mint and a just a touch of sugar for balance.
• The Garden breaks the cocktail mould. In addition to grapefruit and lime juice and mixed peppers, this beverage extravaganza includes coriander - fresh from the farm’s new herb garden. All you need to decide is: vodka or gin?
Dates: December 9, 16, and 30 and January 6 and 13.
