Apart from serving meals 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, Roxy Jr. Cafe also serves up a good selection of cocktails and other alcoholic beverages. There are at least 70-plus cocktails on the menu, divided into sections with interesting categories like "Sour Area", "Cocktail Area" "Dita Area", "Shooters" and "Party Squad". Drinks include the Jager Special (NT$100/shot, NT$200/glass), with the Jagermeister served from a chilled Jager machine for a tantalizing aftertaste. Peter Pan (NT$200), the drink introduced below, is a made with the base liquor of Martini Extra Dry vermouth. Other highly-recommended drinks, particularly for the ladies, include the Frozen Strawberry Margarita (NT$220), served in a salt-rimmed glass for a smoother overall flavor. When you get hungry, try ordering a plate of the Spicy Bafflo Wings (NT$200), made with the chef's own secret recipe and ideal with a pint of beer.
