Beer and ice cream drink?

Yes a beer and ice cream cocktail drink, with pineapple chunks! It’s called Nikita and I tried it in Câmara de Lobos (which is were it originates) in the bar that first came up with it.

Nikita - beer and ice cream cocktail


I’d decided to take a day of mountain trekking and took a 5km stroll from my apartment in Funcal around the coast to Câmara de Lobos, and on the way stopped at the lava stone beach Praia Formosa where I sunbathed naked as it was deserted.


The walk takes you through a tunnel cave round the coast and on a wooden track across the beach.

Funchal to Camara de Lobos

Gentle day walking on the coast from Funchal to Camara de Lobos. Might have been more strenuous if I’d been able to continue round the coast after Camara de Lobos, but I didnt find a way. The route includes cutting through a coastal cliff so you got through a tunnel which brings you round at the other side and onto a wooden path taking you over the rocky beach.
