Shaking things up at WineX



Leopard’s Leap Wines was the provider of the glamorous X-factor at the Cape Town leg of the annual WineX Wine Show this week. Known for being anything but a retiring wallflower, the bold, international label innovated with a twist at its beautifully designed stand where flaring chefs flipped and tossed Leopard’s Leap bottles high enough into the air for the wine to be shaken and stirred.

To the delight of the thousands of wine aficionados in attendance, delicious “dare to be different” Leopard’s Leap wine cocktails were served in stylish martini glasses by exquisite hostesses tastefully clad in anything but demure Leopard print.

The premier wine event moves up to Johannesburg’s Sandton Convention Centre for 23 until 26 October. Gauteng residents will have the chance to sample the delightful wine cocktails developed by Liquid Chefs for Leopard’s Leap with myriad interesting ingredients including kumquat compote, basil, fresh chili and yes, even fresh granadilla also known as passion fruit.

Those with a passion for DIY on the other hand, are welcome to test out their own cocktail making prowess with the recipes which follow. But, remember to visit the Leopard’s Leap stand at WineX Johannesburg to taste the original Leopard’s Leap wine cocktails. Be certain to check back here next week for more wine cocktail recipes certain to put the X-factor into your entertaining occasions.
