This week’s cocktail special was made by mixologist Ovando Gayle, a specialist in his field and an alumnus of the Academy of Bartending, Wines & Spirits.

Gayle is a man of few words, who lights up when guests express satisfaction after the first sip.

Tonight’s cocktail is the Cinni Martell, a sensuous and elegant special, made with – among other tangy additives – a combination of Malibu coconut rum and our very own Jamaican Otaheite apple.

Here’s how you can recreate Ovando Gayle’s Apple in The Loop…



½ oz Campari

1 oz Aperol

½ oz Malibu Coconut Rum

½ oz Otaheite Apple syrup

½ oz lime juice

2 oz Pineapple juice



Add ice


Pour over ice

Garnish with Otaheite apple and Maraschino cherry
