With this blast of Summer sunshine we are experiencing there really is no better way to cool down than with a refreshing cocktail. Here is a few top tips for you to create the perfect cocktail at home…

  1. Pop your glasses in the freezer, not only will it create a cool frosted effect that any professional mixologist would be proud of, it will also make your cocktail extra refreshing by keeping your drink cooler for longer.
  2. Treat yourself to a cocktail strainer to avoid any lumps of ice, pips or herbs. Result = a silky smooth cocktail to go down a treat!
  3. Add a fabulous garnish – well placed slice of lime or fresh herb really dresses up a cocktail.

Our cocktail of choice this week is the Wimbledon Martini (available in our Verandah Bar until 14th July). If you aren’t lucky enough to be visiting us this week then here’s the recipe for you to ‘serve’ one up at home in the sun.

Wimbledon martini


– 3 cubes of Ice

– 25ml White rum

– 50ml Cream

– 35ml Strawberry Liqueur

– 2 crushed Strawberries

– 1 fresh Raspberry to garnish

Simply pop all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker and shake til your heart’s content. Pour through a cocktail strainer and finish with a juicy raspberry…finally pop your feet up and relax.
