Whether you’re craving a cosmo, daydreaming about a daiquiri or pining for a pina colada, Lucky Shaker has you covered
Lucky Shaker is a Mexican-inspired restaurant and cocktail bar offering patrons seasonal drinks, fun and innovative food. Situated in buzzing Umhlanga, this sophisticated spot is a top choice to grab a freshly pressed fruit drink, fine whisky or craft beer. But the real niche is without a doubt, the extensive and impressive cocktail menu.
Cocktails have become synonymous with many memorable movie moments. Like Martinis for 007 or cosmos for Carrie Bradshaw. The list of famous cocktails continues.
But what exactly is it that makes cocktails so great anyway? Perhaps it’s because these concoctions are always the perfect blend of delicious and refreshing. There’s just something so chic about sipping on an expertly created cocktail, or exploring new exotic drinks with weird and wonderful names.
The perfect mix
Given the ever-popular global cocktail culture, Durban welcomed Lucky Shaker with open arms. Not only does it offer the classics, but the menu boasts cocktails such as the Shark Juice (vodka, sherry, watermelon, blueberry and orange) and the Rich Reward (buttered-rum, banana and bitters). They also make sure to switch things up with weekly specials, so there’s always something new to look forward to or try out. The barmen are expert mixologists who shake, stir, rattle and roll these drinks to perfection, and the atmosphere makes it easy to sit back and sip on two or three different delights. You can also munch on delicious tacos, burgers and taco or bar snack boards while you’re at it.
Or why not make a night of it? Get dressed up, grab your friends and dare to try out some new mixes. Just make sure to bring along a designated driver or grab an Uber when you’re ready to head home.
