To raise funds for his staff, King Kurt, the mastermind behind Cause Effect Cocktail Kitchen, has been doing live brandy tastings and cocktail masterclasses every day during lockdown. Watch the series below, or catch him live on his Facebook page daily around 2pm SA time. And please support his team by buying cocktail bonds for the bar; R200 gets you six spritzers, once the bar is open again. Contact Kurt at kurtcocktail@icloud.com for info.
