Summer is almost here and the new menu will be ready for this Friday 4th November and it’s FULL of dishes with fresh summer flavours. Think Akaroa Salmon cured with beetroot with parsnip puree and citrus salad, or fresh fish cervice with heirloom tomatoes, and chargrilled lime. Baby veges, fresh herbs and seasonal salads bring the textures of summer to your plate with desserts that have citrus zing and festive fruits. We see the return of some icons this menu. Crispy pork belly with Harissa and the aged Wakanui fillet with smoked mushrooms and baby spinach. There will be asparagus and broad beans and all those yummy things we like to eat over summer months!

Big welcome to Chris Hunter to the Clink Team. His new Cocktail and Mocktails have been a great hit with a blend of classics, remixes and a couple of new Clink signatures. Keeping it seasonal on here with fresh berries, mint, cucumber and basil all showing up.

Nathan Russell joins the kitchen crew this summer – he will be a great addition to the team. We look forward to seeing his creations in the coming months!

FINALLY just a reminder – if you are booking a pre-Christmas function those dates are filling up fast. With a 2 course or 3 course set menu available give us a call to see if Clink could be the perfect place for your function!

The rise of the MOCKTAIL

IMG_0485

Driver friendly, headache free mocktails have a place on the menu at CLINK!
So what is a mocktail? – essentially everything you’d expect from a cocktail without the alcohol. Several ingredients built, muddled or blitzed with enthusiasm from the bar tender!
CLINK is a destination for most Christchurch people so driving for most is a must. Serving up the mocktails or lower alcohol alternatives is essential. Like our cocktail list, the mocktails are seasonally prepared often starting their life in the realms of the kitchen. Think cinnamon or chilli syrups, cranberry and apple shrubs, pear and ginger purees all made in the CLINK kitchen for your enjoyment!
If there is nothing on the list that grabs your fancy we have recently brought in Six Barrel Soda syrups to make our own unique sodas. With great flavours like cherry pomegranate, sarsaparilla, cola six and celery tonic these are an interesting alternative to a lemon lime and bitters or a lemonade. All made with fair trade organic cane sugar right here in NZ! Of course adding a shot of gin, vodka or rum to these is also worth a try.

We’re not quite ready for the warm temperatures of Summer to be over however the dewy morning grass is getting us thinking about food and beverages that reflect the change in the air.

Personally I LOVE change of seasons to get inspired and with places like Pinterest and Instagram feeding our minds with beautiful pictures and endless ideas it’s easy to get excited. Pop over and have a look at what’s feeding the Clink Teams imagination.
