TO CELEBRATE The Coconut Tree in Oxford launching a new cocktail menu today, they have launched an exclusive competition with The Guide to win a Sri Lankan supper and cocktail party for 10 

Yes, the award-winning Coconut Tree, in St Clement's, invites you to enter a competition to win a night completely on the house, where you and nine friends can experience an explosion of food flavours and enjoy an array of sweet and fiery so-called ‘cocotails’.

The evening will allow diners to enjoy the warmth of Sri Lankan hospitality and cuisine.

The Sri Lankan street food dishes are rich in Ceylon spices going back generations, with recipes from parents of the founders kitchens, all served tapas-style.

Try a traditional Hopper, a bowl-sized coconut milk pancake with an egg inside (optional), a snack eaten at anytime of day. Just mix, roll and eat, as the Sri Lankans say.

You’ll find an interesting mix of wok-style Asian infusion, to Sri Lankan curry flavours and even Portuguese and Dutch all part of the rich heritage of the islands.

There will be something for everyone – with 16 vegan dishes and multiple vegetarian options. However, if you’re a meat eater the goat and potato curry is a must, as well as the ‘clay pot fish’ (tuna).

There is a choice of 12 ‘cocotails’ – all using Sri Lankan flavours and botanicals, muddled and mixed with fun in mind.

Guests can drink from Ruby, the ceramic elephant (and known as ‘giver of good times’) in drinks containing Ceylon Arrack – a spirit made from coconut flower nectar, turmeric, Cointreau and fresh line, topped with ginger beer.

Flick through the ‘Cocotail’ menu at The Coconut Tree and find your favourite along with a visual journey around Sri Lanka.

This really is a prize to relish. Chefs will provide a feast of dishes from the menu which will be placed down the centre of your table. They simply ask that you drink responsibly, as the license requires.
