The Black Book Cocktail Menu

The Eighth Avenue recently approached us to name, photograph and design their latest line of handcrafted cocktails, which we named The Black Book.

We are thrilled to bring you through the list, and we bet you’d be thirsty by the time you get to the bottom of the scroll. Happy browsing!


1. Suit and Tie

One of Eighth Avenue’s signatures. Scotland Hendrick’s shaken up with homemade pomegranate puree, Dom Benedictine that brings smooth and mild herbal notes, balanced with a drop of lemon and classic spiced bitters, served with an ice ball.



2. Wiz Kaffir

Not your ordinary tequila. Lemongrass and kaffir lime leaf with infused tequila, sweetened with organic agave nectar for balance.



3. Magic Vodka Mint Crush

Another house signature. Vodka based drink served with crushed lime and mint in a sugar rimmed glass. A magical sensation you must try!

4. Wild Child

Served up in a tall glass, it is a combination of Chartreuse French liqueur, cold brew Earl Grey, tequila, and sherry. Light some fire in your life by giving this one a go!

6. Just Beet It!

Our take on Michael Jackson’s hit song! It is 8ave’s funky mix of beetroot syrup, gin and pineapple.



7. Mermaid Tears

Look at this stuff, isn’t it neat? This unique pairing of cinnamon whiskey and orange liqueur is simply to die for.



8. Capri Sun

Tequila, wine syrup, orange and yuzu shaken together, giving you the best citrus and alcohol combo. A definite must-try.

You’ll be left speechless by the time you try our combo of mulled wine, spiced honey and whiskey.

Shows off colours and character of a rare breed, this concoction is made with gin, orange and raspberry.



11. Beachside Daiquiri

Daiquiri with a modern twist! A mix of lemon, coconut, pineapple and rum, this drink is refreshing and perfect for any occasion.



12. Sex and the City

Filled with Bacardi and mix with lime and coconut juice. This is the liquid for the soul, with possibly a glimpse of New York and it leaves you thirsty for more!
