Drinks Hottie: Roxy from Cabrito

Cabrito is certainly one of Cape Town’s hottest drinking spots. Their tequila cocktails are some of the best in town and mixing them on a regular basis is Roxy Prentice. We caught up with this brunette beauty during a recent visit to the trendy tequila joint and asked her a couple of intimate questions.

How long you’ve been working at Cabrito? 

Almost two years now, which is probably too long and I’ll be leaving soon so come and have a tequila before I go!

Where did you grow up?

All over Cape Town for the first few years but grew up in Somerset West and I couldn’t think of a more perfect place to grow up.


No… I think

You can put only one thing on your sandwich. What will it be?

I want to say nutella, but it’s fairly controversial now, so second best I’d say peanut butter

If you were a brand of tequila, which brand would you be?

Herradura, I find it weirdly feminine

Ninjas or pirates?

Ninjas for sure, mostly because I want to be one

If you were the opposite sex for one day, what would you look like and what would you do?

Maybe Justin Trudeau, and I’d just not leave the house all day, you know?

Where did you passion for the bar industry start?

To be honest out of necessity, I’m an actress predominantly, but it’s not the most consistent work so it’s good to have something on the side, and bartending is the most fun part time job I’ve had.

What was you favourite TV show as a child?

Didn’t have a TV until I was older but I do know I watched The Lion King about 100 times

Do you think people should eat the fish they catch, or just let them go?

People just shouldn’t catch fish

If you had to move to another Provence in South Africa, which one will you pick?

Gauteng, anyone who knows me knows I want to live in Joburg for at least some of my life

Have you ever thrown up in a car?

I made a taxi driver in Mumbai pull over so I could throw up outside his car, very considerate even when drunk on Indian vodka

What did you want to be when you were a kid?

One of the first things I wanted to be was an air hostess, and ended up doing it for two years. Just ticking those dreams off one by one

What is one unique thing you are afraid of?

I not scared of anything except for spiders and I know that’s not unique at all!

The most famous person you’ve met?

I once did a scene with Forest Whitaker and basically my life is complete

You’re about to walk the green mile, what do you have as your last meal?

A masala dosa
