Herb wine summertime cocktail

14th September 2017

Now that summer is here, all plan busy weekends out with family, friends or that special someone for a hangout. We grab those nibbles, finger foods or barbeques not forgetting every meal or gathering has to be complemented with a beverage depending on the occasion. Summer favours us because so many exotic fruits are in season, so we are spoilt for choice. Play around with those ingredients in the kitchen, pick fruits and vegetables that you are not familiar with, mix them with a little bit of this and you will be amazed with the results, provided you are not breaking my number one food knowledge rule and obviously you don’t want to turn the kitchen into Dexter’s Laboratory.

The show featured acts such as Mafikizolo, Cassper Nyovest, Riky Rick, Vee, MMP Family and ATI among others. The stage set-up and sound were on point and the performances out of this world, but the poor security was the blob in an otherwise great show. The well-lubricated revellers were excited to see the performances but little did they know that there would be an anti-climax. By 2am, the hooligan “masses” had pushed down the barricade fence that separated the general area from the VIP but most of them seemingly wanted to have fun as they sang along and danced their hearts out.
