The Ghibli Bar at the Radisson Blu Hotel, in Riebeek Street, Cape Town, has a new zodiac cocktail orange, where there’s a drink for every star sign.
The Blu Mix-ology – The Zodiac cocktail List – was launched at the popular rooftop bar last Friday and it’s just in time for winter.
As the sun set on a stunning afternoon, the stars came out for the astrological-themed event, where guests paired classic cocktails from around the world with their zodiac sign.
The event encouraged you to taste your star sign, with many tongue-in-cheek descriptions attached to the alcoholic beverages.
