Gypsy Caravan became a favourite go to during summer for myself and my bestie. We were drawn there by the now infamous frozé. It is without a doubt the best summer drink if you enjoy a good rosé and to be honest even in winter I still want it.
It is located in Ponsonby down a lane behind Golden Dawn, it is also where Miss Mooshines is.
One day while scrolling through instagram I saw a post about flaming cheese and the rest was history, it was something I HAD to try. Basically they bring out a skillet and pour ouzo over which is an anise-flavoured aperitif and then set it alight. It really is fun and it tastes unbelievable.

During the week of the Gin Jubilee in Auckland Gypsy Caravan also did a weekend of frozen gin and tonics. Unfortunately I missed out of these but instead got to try gin infused with hibiscus.

It is best to head to Gypsy Caravan when it is sunny as the majority of their seating is outside. The decor is really beautiful with eccentric patterned pillows and dream catchers overhead. There is also actually a caravan.
