You stand a chance to win a R5000 cocktail experience with Angostura® Rock Shandy and six of SA’s top bars around the country, namely Orphanage Cocktail Emporium and Cause Effect Cocktail Kitchen in Cape Town, Lucky Shaker in Durban, Mootee Bar and Sin + Tax in Joburg and an all-new cocktail experience in Cape Town created by Travis Kuhn.

In the world of beverages one standout serve has rocked our worlds for as long as we can remember… a revolutionary no-alcohol addition to the ever-changing hospitality scene; the first choice in South African restaurants, country clubs and cocktail bars; and an ambassador for modern home entertaining - the Angostura® Rock Shandy.A crisp and subtle refreshment, mixing it is easy when you consider that it is a 3-ingredient classic that can be made in mere minutes. All it takes is equal parts lemonade and soda over ice with a few generous dashes of Angostura® aromatic bitters to taste and a lemon wedge to garnish.

Angostura® asked South Africa’s top barmen about their love of the local long drink. Some are new to the game, some have been in the industry for coming on twenty years. Two things were certain - every bartender at the top of their game encounters the Rock Shandy very early on in their careers and all of them agree that there would be absolutely no need to change the traditional recipe, ever.Apart from futuristic ideas like Rock Shandy tablets and premixed Rock Shandy bottles that release bitters to the user’s preference when opened, it seems that there is no need for evolution when it comes to the Angostura® Rock Shandy. 

Travis Kuhn, owner of The Perfect Serve and South Africa's Diageo Bartender of the Year 2018 says, “drinks like the Rock Shandy are timeless, and in so saying, if you’re having a Rock Shandy in 2049 you’re having it right now”.
