The Untold Secret behind the Chapman drink

The true origin of Nigerian chapman is unknown but rumours of its inception are traced to the same Ikoyi club mentioned in my story above.

Ikoyi club is rumoured to have invented the chapman cocktail way back in the 30’s where a bartender made the drink for his regular customer, a British member of the club known only as Chapman.

The Chapman cocktail since then until now has been traditionally served in a dimpled mug as a sophisticated non-alcoholic drink.

And today we all enjoy Chapman.

Today been Sunday, I will be doing this Recipe to celebrate a Friend's birthday. Enjoy

Few things to note

Chapman drink is typically made with grenadine syrup or a blackcurrant drink concentrate (usually Ribena), orange soda (usually Fanta), lemon-lime soda (usually Sprite or 7-Up), angostura bitters, and garnished with citrus fruits and cucumber slices. My version will show how to make Chapman using some natural alternatives to these drinks, and while this Chapman drink is by no means a low calorie substitute, it has less chemicals and no artificial coloring but tastes just as good!
