Bounce along for cricket cocktail.

THE Ashes test in Cardiff is just a week away, and it appears the cricket will not be the only new arrival in the city next week.

Cardiff's Laguna Bar at the Park Plaza Hotel has created a limited edition cocktail especially for the event The Bouncer is a long tequila-based drink mixed with lime, grapefruit and cranberry, and according to staff at the bar on Greyfriars Road, is the perfect summer drink to sip after watching the drama unfold in Sophia Gardens.

Laguna's bar manager, Gian-andwith a full house expected in the Laguna Bar, I wanted to create a cocktail to mark this sporting occasion.

"In a Bouncer I have used the Reposado tequila to give the drink a smoky flavour, to give a nod to The Ashes, while the combination of the fruit juices make it tangy and lively.

"In cricket, 'a bouncer' is a strong, tactical move which can throw the batsman off if he isn't playing in an attacking manner.

"To keep it in line with it's name, I've made sure our cocktail has a similar kick to it."
