This is the Ellerman House Fynbos Cocktail and its totally delicious and uniquie. Shaken with ice and poured into a martini glass with a twist of lemon its a perfect aperitif to kick off an evening out.
Last week I had the wonderful opportunity to shoot few cocktails for this exclusive luxury hotel following on from the menu shoot I did there in winter. Its so easy to take pretty pictures at this private venue. You literally point your camera in any direction and it picks up something beautiful. The views, the jaw droopingly beautiful art scatttered all over the place (inside and out) and the lovely building with all its interesting nooks and crannies.
