What better way to entice you in to try than their new cocktail menu? 19 new recipes will be in the pages of their menu, alongside Brasilian deliciousness like my absolute favourite - and thing I have honestly had multiple dreams about - the Feijoada Fries. A Brasilian hotpot on top of sweet potato fries. Oh my gosh, already planning my next trip.
Ipanema Iced Tea -
Essentially, a classic for a bigger group. The serving looked amazing, and it was a delicious cocktail, sweet, refreshing and an easy pick - but best served three people plus, or with a lot of gossip to get through.
Spicy Malagueta Caipirinha -
The cocktail that incorporates their USP (and delicious), malagueta sauce. Initially I was a little apprehensive as to how this would work, but it really did. It's a seriously sweet serving but was one of my favourites. There's a subtle after taste of the spicy flavour, but nothing that will be compared to the malagueta chicken!
Passion fruit Batida and Mango Batida -
For me the creamier options on the menu... I won't try again, but my boyfriend happened to love them. Essentially an alcoholic milkshake, really rich but with a refreshing fruity underlying flavour. For me the mango just tasted too artificial, the creamy options were never going to be my favourites though.
Blueberry & Acai Caipirinha -
The definitive highlight from the menu. A delicious flavour, packed full with ice - and topped with a blueberry - to amplify the refreshing fruit combination. A touch of sweetness, as with any classic caipirinha, but not reaching sour or rich status. You need to try this as priority.
Frozen Strawberry Caipirinha -
Beware of brain freeze, this one is pretty easy to slurp through as there's no heavy alcohol flavour or super sweet finish to get in the way of the mix. Likewise, there's no flavour explosion here - a good option for first timers into frozen cocktails, or a classic option.
For me, the new flavour combinations (to me) won over. Blueberry with acai and the unique malagueta caipirinha.
I'll no doubt be back to Cabana for the fries soon enough, this time, with a cocktail to cleanse through the meal.
