New! Fresh Juice Bar at Experimental Beach Ibiza
The expert mixologists at Experimental Beach Ibiza are renowned for their abilities to concoct the greatest and most creative cocktails creations in the world, and this year, with new Chef Barman Nicolas Baptiste at the helm, the group turns their tricks to the world of fresh juices.
Introducing a fresh juice and smoothie bar to the beautiful beach restaurant on the beach at Cap d’es Falco makes perfect sense – it’s a hot and steamy summer day in Ibiza, you’re hitting the sun loungers early and you want to start your day off with a healthy start. The selection of juices, smoothies and milkshakes plus jugs of homemade lemonade and iced tea are all made from scratch, from the freshest local produce available, guaranteed to quench your thirst before you’re ready to switch to the hard stuff (but more on that in a future edition).
The fresh juices are much more than your average juice, as Nico uses his well-trained barman’s senses not just to to the job of recipe creation, but also to the beautiful presentation. Absolutely every ingredient, syrup and cordial is fresh or homemade and sourced from a local supplier here on the island – an element that is extremely important to the ECC group around the world.
Juice purists will love the classic ACE (orange, carrot and lemon), while those looking to beat the summer heat could choose Summertime (pictured second from top) – a yummy smoothie of melon, mint, , yellow pepper, cucumber, lemon and agave syrup or opt for a signature slushy creation such as the Granita (top – a deliciously zingy frozen mixture of lime, mango, passionfruit and pineapple). The Boost (above) is another smoothie of spinach, basil, pineapple and lime juice (and also Nico’s favourite), while those looking for a retro-style flavour-filled milkshake should try the Ibiza-inspired Higolo (below), a delicious blend of almond milk, locally grown figs and agave syrup.
And that’s just the beginning (hic!). Visit Experimental Beach Ibiza to pick your own potion from the extensive list, or let Nico recommend something to suit your tastes.
