Drink This: Rock Lobster’s Ribbons and Swallows

Following in the footsteps of La Carnita, Rock Lobster Food Co. is the city’s second TUM favourite that’s opened a mother ship to seemingly endless fanfare. Like its somewhat meatier cousin, Rock Lobster has a rowdy atmosphere, thanks to tunes that match its name, plus plenty of boozy cocktails — not to mention the wine on tap.

Created by Josh Lindley (previously of Campagnolo), the cocktail list is packed with seaworthy picks including a Caesar ($12) flagged with a half lobster tail. We however, opted for a slightly more tropical concoction: the Ribbons and Swallows ($10). Rife with Sailor Jerry rum, Aperol, coconut syrup and passion fruit juice, this fruity-with-a-kick drink conjures up beachy visions, bringing the summer sun a wee bit closer.
