The undisputed king of the cocktail. Classy, suave, and above all delicious, whichever variation you prefer. Our Martinis are all made with Brokers London Dry Gin unless an alternative is requested.
The perfect ratio of five parts gin, to one part dry vermouth. Always stirred, never shaken. Olive or twist? Your call. Want it wet (more vermouth)? Prefer it drier (less vermouth)? Let us know
Exactly as above only with the gin switched out for Stolichnaya Vodka.
If you really do prefer your martini shaken but not stirred then this is the one to order. Vodka, Gin and dry vermouth combine to create this literary classic (it was invented by Ian Fleming as the drink of choice for the hero of his new novel, Casino Royale.)
Not all martini type drinks are dry. This sweet little beauty combines Gin, Sweet Vermouth, and Triple Sec. Highly recommended for newcomers to the martini world. In fact, highly recommended for everybody.
A straight up standard dry martini, but the olive or lemon twist has been done away with, and replaced with a pair or pickled cocktail onions. Don’t be put off by the sound of it. It’s by far and away co-owner, Jamie’s personal favourite Martini variation.
Forget the Vodka Redbull. This is the original boozy pick-me-up. Rich espresso coffee, a double shot of Stolichnaya Vodka and coffee liqueur combine to make this delicious modern classic.
All Time Classics
Some cocktails transcend time. Fashions fade in and out but these drinks are ever-presents on any self respecting cocktail menu. For good reason.
What the Martini is to gin, the Manhattan is to bourbon. The beautiful harmony of American whisky and sweet vermouth. Just a dash of bitters and a few drops of maraschino syrup round off this untouchable classic.
A classic straight up gin cocktail. With the current gin boom this lime infused beauty is a firm favourite. If you love gin, and the sharp sweetness of lime, look here and nowhere else.
As the name suggests, this is a very venerable drink indeed. The only other mixed drink which gives it’s name to the glass it’s made in. Canadian Club, gently stirred with ice, sugar and angostura. Its sounds simple, but it’s actually very very clever.
Take an Old Fashioned and jazz it up with Creole bitters and a hint of French quarter absinthe. The absinthe hogs the headlines but it’s the Peychaud’s bitters that make this New Orleans cocktail sing like Nina Simone. Stirred with ice but never served with it.
Simple but perfectly formed. Equal parts Brokers gin, sweet vermouth and Campari are blended together to create this beautiful classic. More Italian than Michaelangelo eating a pizza, in a gondola…
The national drink of mexico. Part of the ‘sour’ family, the classic blend of Tequila, Cointreau Triple Sec and fresh lime is an absolute must if you’ve not had one before.
If the Margarita is the national drink of Mexico, The Daiquiri must surely be Cuba’s. Brugal White Rum, fresh lime and Cointreau Triple Sec make this classic sour. Forget all the modern variations of this one with all their fruit pulp. The classic Daiquiri is untouchable.
This old school favourite comprises a double shot of Brokers Gin that is made sweet and sour with the addition of lemon juice and syrup, topped off with soda water. Essentially a Gin sour lengthened with soda. The perfect long drink.
Another contender for national drink of Cuba. Brugal White Rum, fresh lime and Angostura Bitters, all topped off with cola. It’s about as good a long drink as you can get!
There’s a common misconception that the Black Russian has cola in it. It doesn’t. 2 shots of Stolichnaya Vodka and a shot of Coffee Liqueur, shaken with ice and served straight up. It’s sweet, rich, dark and delicious! If you want it lengthened with coke, it becomes a Colorado Bulldog and if you’d prefer its creamier cousin, lengthened with fresh milk, it’s a White Russian. Na Zdorovie!
‘Mules’ or ‘Bucks’ as there are sometimes known are another generic family of classic cocktails. A long drink, our mules are always a double shot of base spirit mixed with fresh lime juice, topped off with fiery ginger beer. The Moscow Mule is the famous one, and the Dark and Stormy has become a modern firm favourite.
Dark & Stormy
Brugal Dark Rum, fresh lime juice and ginger beer
Stolichnaya Vodka, fresh lime juice and ginger beer
Gin Gin Mule
Brokers London dry Gin, fresh lime juice and with dry ginger ale in place of the ginger beer
Cognac, fresh lime juice and ginger beer
Southern Comfort Whiskey, fresh lime juice and ginger beer
Just because it’s pink, it doesn’t mean it’s for girls! A sharp and sweet blend of Stolichnaya Vodka, Cointreau Triple Sec orange liqueur, fresh lime and cranberry juice. Now where did we put those Manolos?
Long Island Ice Tea.
What the Beatles are to pop music, The Long Island Ice Tea is to cocktails. Crazy popular, and for good reason. Half a shot of all the white spirits, (Brokers Gin, Stolichnaya Vodka, Brugal White Rum, Cointreau Triple Sec and Tequila Blanco) sharpened with lime and topped off with coke. Shake it up baby.
Sex On The Beach.
Remember the 80s? We do!! Stolichnaya Vodka, peach schnapps, raspberry liqueur, cranberry and orange juice go to make this crassly titled classic.
Del Boy’s favourite, and for good reason! Mahiki Coconut infused White Rum, shaken with pineapple juice. A 60’s staple that deserves it’s place on any menu! We know its deeply unfashionable, but we just cant help but love it! Go on… have one and show all your friends how cool you are by how ironic you’re being!
Surely A Classic In Waiting
The Tuppenny, a chilly December night in 2016. Two old friends, Shaun Buswell and Sam Bates are contemplating what to drink next.
“I know, I’ll have a Amaretto and Cream Soda” muses Shaun. “Hmmm… Tastes a bit like a bakewell tart! Try it.” he remarks, handing the drink to his friend.
“Hmmm yeah, it is like a bakewell tart!” exclaimed Sam. “tell you what, stick a cherry in and it and you’ll have nailed it.”
And thus, was born, ‘The Bateswell Tart‘. A double shot of Amaretto, topped off with Soda Folk Cream Soda, and a maraschino cherry.
