From the day I landed in Nigeria, one drink which I have seen being loved by all here (including me - if I am on a non alcoholic mood) is THE CHAPMAN.
It is a simple and refreshing drink with an unique flavoring. It has the look of a tropical juice - carbonated.
The drink is usually served in beer mugs (almost every restaurant serves so) and with a different glass you miss the feel of Chapman.

Let we now see, how to make 2 mugs (500ml x 2) of Cilantro's Special Chapman.

All you need for making this special mock-tail:
  • one 330ml can of Fanta or Mirinda
  • one 330ml can of Sprite or 7Up
  • 4 tablespoons of Blackcurrant Syrup / Squash
  • 3 drops or 2ml of Angostura bitters (available in major Supermarkets, in Kano - Wellcare has)
  • Squeeze of Lemon / Orange
  • For garnising Cucumber slices & Lime wedges
  • Crushed Ice
Follow the instructions to make the amazing drink:
  • Fill both the mugs with a quarter of crushed ice
  • Pour 2 tablespoons of Blackcurrant syrup / squash into each of the ice filled mugs
  • Equally divide both the carbonated drinks and pour into the mugs
  • Add the drops of bitters - take efforts to see you are not adding much
  • Now squeeze the slices of Lemon and Orange into the mug.
  • Give a stir and garnish with Cucumber slices and lemon wedges
  • Can be presented with a cocktail umbrella and broad spring straw
Now the refreshing Chapman is ready to be enjoyed.
Hope the readers will have a try of making this drink in their house.

The drink is also available at Cilantro Restaurant & Lounge, Kano, Nigeria, specially made by its Chef.
