It’s weekend and work is out of the question.
You deserve to spend the time between knocking off on a Friday afternoon and waking up on a Monday morning with friends and family, having get-togethers, good food, listening to some soulful music, and a fancy drink or two in your hand.
And what better way to do just that than with a Gin High Tea at the V&A Waterfront’s Ginja Restaurant?
This Cape Town restaurant favourite – set in one of Africa’s most visited destinations with nearly 24 million visitors a year – gives you reason to celebrate the weekend. On the first Saturday of every month Ginja boasts their signature Gin High Tea event where they feature a gin of the month paired with a chic and elegant afternoon high tea with great panache.
It’s a treat of note where live entertainment taps into your soul, a variety of Khoisan teas and coffee are available (included in the price) and a sweet and savoury buffet with toothsome treats and scrumptious nibbles – prepared by some of the city’s finest chefs – will take your taste buds on a gastronomic journey.
And then of course there is the highlight of the day… the gin!
Ginja’s Gin High Tea is only R185 per person and included in the price you will find a variety of tonics (sponsored by Fitch & Leedes) and different garnishes, fruits, herbs and flavours to create your own unique gin cocktail (buffet, coffee and tea is included in price while the gin is charged separately on consumption).
For the month of September, Ginja is featuring Cape Town Gin.
