Summer Thyme Refreshment At ‘Cabrito’ On The Drive


And now for something completely different: the Tomillo Margarita. Served up at the little, lovely, lively Cabrito – a brilliant and hugely underrated Spanish restaurant on The Drive – it’s a Mezcal margarita that sees its Cointreau, lime, and agave lit up with the booze-alleviating sting of grapefruit and a seriously summery herbaceous hint of thyme (“tomillo” is Spanish for thyme). The cocktail list is long, fascinating, and very well considered — a great match for an accessible small plates menu that is as diverse in flavour as it is big on quality.

The seasonal cocktail at The Keefer Bar is tiki-inspired without being sweet and summery. Think blended Scotch, coconut and Amaro.
