Cocktail Cabinets

Six cocktail cabinets to covet

As we head into Summer it’s time to start upping our cocktail game… in preparation for lazy days of sipping whilst soaking up a little bit of Covid-fighting Vitamin D.

So, we’ve rounded up a few head-turning cocktail cabinets that offer beauty and practicality, as a nudge to organising your favourite libations ahead of warmer temperatures.

Also, head over to our Culture page where we’ve asked Joburg-based restaurateur and barkeep Eloise Windebank to share some of her winning cocktail recipes with us. We’ve even matched these with each of our selected cabinets below (because we’re cool like that).
