Sip on the new cocktail menu at ROKA

Contemporary Japanese robatayaki restaurant ROKA Dubai has launched an all-new highball cocktail menu. Based on the Japanese philosophy ‘wabi-sabi’ (which translates to beauty in imperfection), the six new serves menu of drinks has been given a modern twist with an array of spirits. Arguably one of the most unique highballs joining the menu is Strawberries and Cream, a playful interpretation created with an in-house carbonated strawberry and clarified cream soda, served over fresh vanilla, strawberries and cream spirit. Available daily, from 6:30pm to midnight.
