If you still haven’t planned something special for Father’s Day, then consider taking him to Carnelian at the Rock. Enjoy tapas and cocktails in a relaxed environment on the veranda of this Joburg restaurant.

SURPRISE DAD: Gift ideas for father’s day

These cocktails devised by George Hunter and Cameron Henning, both critically acclaimed in their own right and who together won the Absolut Team Edition 2018 bartending championships. The cocktails are inspired by the likes of Frank Sinatra and Captain Jack Sparrow.


The French 75 is a must. A mix of premium gin, lemon juice, sugar syrup and sparkling wine. The French 75 cocktail celebrates the firepower of the WW1 French 75mm field gun, a symbol of hope.
