CLASSICS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

CLASSIC COCKTAILS

COSMOPOLITAN £6.95
The very original Cosmo used to be made with gin. However, we enjoy the later version by Toby Cecchini, which in time became the something of international standard. Stolichnaya Premium Vodka, Cointreau, fresh lime, cranberry juice and touch of simple syrup.

CLASSIC MOJITO £6.95
The origins of Mojito are subject to debate. However, a story suggests that it traces back to 16th century drink ‘El Draque. Our version consists of Brugal Anejo Especial rum, fresh mint leaves, fresh lime juice, simple syrup and just a touch of soda water.

BRAMBLE £6.95
The Bramble was invented in 1984 by Dick Bradsell, England’s cocktail connoisseur, at Fred’s Club in London’s Soho. Fresh blackberries, Bombay Sapphire gin, crème de mure, fresh lemon and a splash of sugar syrup.

Hugo Ensslin first published the formula for the Aviation in his 1916 Recipes for Mixed Drinks. A tasty, well-balanced drink with Hendricks gin, Luxardo maraschino, crème de violate and fresh lemon juice.

Invented around 1915 by Ngiam Tong Bong at Raffles Hotel in Singapore, this favourite classic of ours consists of Bombay Sapphire gin, Cherry liqueur, Cointreau, Benedictine, a touch of pineapple juice, bitters and topped with soda.

MARGARITA £6.95
The Margarita was invented in October 1941, at Hussong’s Cantina in Ensenada, Mexico, by a bartender, Don Carlos Orozoco for Margarita Henkel, the daughter of a German ambassador. Our version of it is Reposado Tequila, mixed with fresh lime, gum syrup and Cointreau.

OLD FASHIONED £6.95
The First written mention of the word cocktail comes from the Morning Post and Gazetter, 1978, London. We stick to the definition of cocktail from 1806. Maker’s Mark, sugar cube cherry maraschino, with orange slice and bitters. However, feel free to ask your bartender if you would prefer a spirit of any other kind.

MAI TAI £6.95
Mai Tai translates from Tahitian to meaning “Out of this World”. The cocktail came to light in 1944 in Oakland’s Trader Vic’s. There, Victor Bergron, put together Mount Gay Eclipse Rum mixed with fresh lime juice, orgeat syrup, orange-flavoured brandy liqueur, pineapple juice, orange juice and Brugal Blanco Rum.

DAIQUIRI £7.95
The name Daiquiri is also the name of a beach near Santiago, Cuba, and an iron mine in that area. The daiquiri was supposedly invented by an American mining engineer, named Jennings Cox, who happened to be in Cuba at the time of the Spanish-American War. Our version is made with Santa Teresa Rhum Orange, fresh lime juice and sugar syrup. Flavours available: raspberry, mango, passion fruit and strawberry.
