Ocean Green Beach is a beautiful private beach in Prampram, a town in the greater Accra Region. The bus will pick you up at the mall at 1pm and depart on the hour trip to the beach resort. On arrival, you will start up on the first activity of the day, which is a mix and sip. Using delicious fresh and unique Ghanaian ingredients, you will learn how to make some familiar and other not so familiar cocktails with authentic indigenous elements. For example, we'll make Sangria using hibiscus tea, commonly known as sobolo, replace cocktail staples like soda water or Sprite with fresh coconut water, use local spices like ginger, cloves, and use local cane spirits instead of gin, amongst others. The idea is to fuse modern cocktails with local ingredients, which essentially is the spirit of being in the diaspora.
You will also get to try unique recipes on local drinks such as caramelized corn drink, commonly knows as asana, delicious fresh palm wine, etc. The mix and sip will have interesting twists such as, matching unlabeled spirits with their labels, rearranging recipes and following them, tasting, pick and act drink names, and other exciting drinking games to make this activity as fun and memorable as possible.
Following up on that excitement, we are going to have a buffet dinner with some of the best Ghanaian delicacies as well as some exotic cuisines. With fresh seafood from the sea, our Ghanaian raised and Canadian trained culinary chef will create some amazing dishes. The menu includes appetizers such kelewele, egg & pepper, plantain chips, etc. The main meal will also include jollof, waakye, grilled tilapia, suya, gari fotor, spicy tofu and salads with local seeds and nuts like tiger nuts etc. All meal requirements will be considered. Like a typical Ghanaian family, we are all going to eat around a long table as we recount the exciting parts of the day and the trip so far.
As we head back to the beach to catch the rest of the sunset, we are going to make a bonfire on the beach as we listen and dance to some good afrobeats music. What good would a bonfire by the beach be without listening to some good old Ghanaian folktales? After the music, we will listen to some folktales and interesting facts and trivia about Ghana with lots of souvenirs to go around such as paintings, jewelry, fabrics, organic body butters, etc. After an eventful night, we are going to head back to the mall at 7pm.
