After a long workweek or a particularly stressful day, we’re totally on the nice cocktail or a liberally poured glass of red wine vibe. Our foodie is here to show you exactly what to get and where to get it, next up on our drinks hunt: Nok by Alara

Owing to its attachment to Alara, one of the most talked about concept store in West-Africa, Nok is definitely one place in Lagos to try out. The intimate setting of the entire space is perfect for a quiet date, or a mid-week catch up with friends. Our favourite pick: the Guavarita cocktail.

The Guavarita gives your tastebuds a burst of different flavours, while the taste of the alcohol is masked nicely. There is a spicy kick that lingers in your mouth after the sweetness of the guava juice, and you’re at the bottom of the glass before you know it. The cup is rimmed with Cameroon pepper and salt, which adds aesthetic pleasure to the experience.



Pro Tip: Don’t be fooled by the masked taste of the alcohol, it will hit you before you get up from your seat! Drink responsibly!
