The cantaloupe taste is very prominent as well as the flavour in the Pitaya sorbet. I really like how the pecans and coconut gave the drink extra texture and something for me to chew on. The drink it refreshing, fruity and elegant. Perfect for a lady.


One of their most popular drink is the Matcha Sensation. It’s made with two ingredients only, Matcha Green Tea and Straus Milk. Simple and delicious.
