"If you like Pina Coladas made with champagne ..."
We never really count on Pina Coladas, especially when it's mild. Just the thought of all the coconut milk and the juice curdling in our guts like quark with pineapple *. And then Chris Moore of Coupette creates the Champagne Pina Colada - two sizzling fingers that are raised everywhere to Poseurs by the pool. A kind of snowball for the summer, which is already faked in bars around the world.
It is the flagship of Coupette's summer card: a wave of mint-infused watermelons, carbonated apple juice with calvados, and rhubarb-negroni - as we can imagine tasting a hipster. These drinks are not only refreshing ... they are refreshing; Like an icy glass of Robinson after playing five sets with Novak Djokovic, it's clear. But also, for example, a political leader who does not talk from the back of his head.
These drinks speak for themselves: you will not find any exploding palms or Club Tropicana on the bow (in fact they had a chic ivory tickler with them when we were there). This is a stylish, dimly lit joint for those who want to enjoy the summer in nifty little blasts while waiting for all the nonsense of the heat wave to pass.
