Boulevardier

£10.00

Take a negroni, remove the gin, add Bourbon. TADAA! You’ve made a Boulevardier. A bit more complex than a normal Negroni but well worth the effort. Bourbon, Campari and Sweet Vermouth. Good things come in 3’s.

Manhattan

£11.00

If you order a Manhattan, and your waiter is in a bad mood, you’re going to get hit with what sounds like a very stupid question. “Sweet, dry or perfect?”. A good waiter will ask you the same thing but then explain what the hell they are on about. A Manhattan is a short cocktail made of Bourbon, bitters and vermouth. Sweet means it’s made with Sweet Vermouth (surprisingly), dry means its made with…. Dry vermouth! Perfect means it’s made with a mix of the two. Sweet is easier drinking, dry is a bit more old school and perfect is in between. Ask for the drink how you think you’ll like it, and now I’m going to be hunted down by angry bartenders for letting you into the inner circle.

Mint Julep

£9.50

Woe betide the bartender who puts citrus into this cocktail. They should be dragged out into the street and shot. I apologise but it happens more often than I care to think about. The staple drink of the Kentucky Derby, it’s a mix of Bourbon, mint, bitters and sugar. That’s it. No citrus. Never citrus. It’s not a bloody deep south Mojito! I apologise, I ranted, it happens. Mint Juleps are delicious. When they don’t have citrus in.

Old Fashioned

£10.50

Woe betide the bartender who puts citrus into this cocktail. They should be dragged out into the street and shot. I apologise but it happens more often than I care to think about. The staple drink of the Kentucky Derby, it’s a mix of Bourbon, mint, bitters and sugar. That’s it. No citrus. Never citrus. It’s not a bloody deep south Mojito! I apologise, I ranted, it happens. Mint Juleps are delicious. When they don’t have citrus in.

Vieux Carre

£11.00

Named using the French term for what’s now known as the French Quarter, the Vieux Carré traces its origin to the bar back in the 1930s, and first appeared in print in 1937, in Famous New Orleans Drinks and How to Mix ‘Em. With rye, Cognac, sweet vermouth, and plenty of bitters, it’s as rich and decadent now as it was back then, and still remarkably evocative of the Big Easy.

O.G Sazerac

£9.50

The big O,G. The daddy, the genesis Sazerac. Before it was unavailable the famed New Orleans drink was made with French brandy, instead of the Rye it oft. is today. It’s the deeper, darker, more sophisticated version, that puts its offspring to shame, with a richer, fuller flavour.

Sidecar

£9.50

As with most cocktails, the origins of the drink are hazy (be suspicious of those who state with certainty when or where the Sidecar was first mixed), but this entrancing mixture of brandy, lemon juice and orange liqueur started making the rounds in the most fashionable watering holes in London and Paris during the 1920s

Americano

£8.00

So before there was the Negroni there was the Americano. And no I don’t mean the coffee. A mix of Campari and Sweet Vermouth topped with soda, its a much less boozy easy sipper than its cousin. You can spend many an hour knocking them back with very little ill effect.

Aviation

£9.50

In its early days, aviation was just about the most dashing thing around, and the whole idea of taking to the sky was as fantastic a dream as any. Back then, it was all leather flight jackets and pilot’s goggles, the roar of the propeller and the wind in your hair; now, we’re stuck with cramped seats, missed connections, and walking around in public in our socks. Bring back the glory days of flight with this mix of Sipsmith Gin, Maraschino, lemon and Violette liquer.

Bramble

£9.50

Created by a very nice chap called Dick Bradsell back in the 80’s, he also gifted us the Espresso Martini for which we should all be truly thankful. A mix of Beefeater London Dry Gin, lemon juice, sugar and Creme de Mure (blackberry), its short and dry with just enough fruit to disguise the fact that you’re slowly getting very merry.

Corpse Reviver #2

£10.00

A drink with a slightly scary name. It’s called a number 2 as there’s actually 3 variants of this cocktail, number 2 uses Gin as the base. Add a bit of Lillet, Cointreau, lemon and the tiniest touch of Absinthe and your golden. Called a Corpse Reviver as they used to say that 2 of these could bring someone back from the dead, 2 more will kill you again. Maybe that’s what everyone was drinking in the Walking Dead?

French 75

£10.00

A beautiful classic cocktail named after something truly depressing. This drink takes its name from the 75mm artillery gun used in the first world war. Yeah told you it was a bit depressing. That being said the cocktail is bloody great, Sipsmith Gin, lemon juice, sugar and prosecco. It’s refreshing, tart, herbal and bubbly as all hell.

Gin Martini

£9.50

I’ve worked so many places where bartenders and waiters seem to take it as a personal challenge to make Gin Martinis (and Vodka Martinis for that matter) the most complicated thing in the world to order. They’re really easy. To order anyway, to drink one takes a bit of an effort as you’re basically drinking neat gin. A Gin Martini is a stirred down double measure of Gin with a bit of dry vermouth. Despite its name dry vermouth is actually a little bit sweet. You’ll first be asked “what gin do you want”, we use Sipsmith but try anything you like, you’ll then be asked wet or dry. Dry means less vermouth, wet means more vermouth. Wet is easier to drink (relatively) dry is a bit more hardcore. Then you’ll be asked olive or twist. Olive means….. wait for it…. we put an olive in. Twist means a bit of lemon peel. If they really want to be difficult they’ll then ask if you want it Dirty. Dirty means adding a bit of olive brine. Makes it salty. Here I go again breaking down barriers, how dare I.

Last Word

£11.00

I could give you history for this. I will not. Quite simply the best cocktail ever created, and I promise I’m not just spouting my own opinion…. probably. A concoction, for there is no other suitable term, of Gin, Chartreuse (a delicious French herbal liquer that has a colour named after it), Maraschino (cherry) Liquer and lime juice. Buy one. Buy two. Now.

Negroni

£9.50

Awwwww look at him! Our little Americano got all growed up! Take an americano, take the soda out and replace it with a shot of Sipsmith Gin. Apparently called a Negroni because Count Otto Negroni asked his bartender for an Americano (also available on our menu) with a bit more punch. Sipsmith Gin, Campari and Sweet Vermouth brought together in a match made in heaven. For the uninitiated it might be a bit of a shock, it starts out bitter as all hell and then mellows into something much more tasty. If you’ve never had one then approach with caution but its well worth the effort

Singapore Sling

£10.00

Originally from the Raffles Hotel in Singapore, it’s a busy mix of Sipsmith Gin, Benedictine, Cherry Heering, Triple Sec, lemon, pineapple and soda. Ironically you can’t get a good one in the Raffles Hotel anymore, they make a big old premix and apparently it’s a bit dire. Our’s isn’t dire. Our’s is lovely.

Tom Collins

£9.50

Classic cocktails all tend to follow a very basic set of rules, normally no more than 3 ingredients, and a combination of strong (booze), sharp (citrus) and sweet (sugar). The Tom Collins is no exception, Sipsmith gin, lemon juice, sugar and a soda top. It’s basically the adult version of cloudy lemonade.

White Lady

£9.50

Basically a gin sour, another classic cocktail that uses a spirit, a citrus and a sugar. Sipsmith Gin, lemon juice, sugar, Cointreau and egg white. A great drink, if you want it without the egg you feel free to ask, but please just trust me, egg in cocktails doesn’t taste of egg, just makes it silky smooth and a bit frothy. Live a little, leave the egg in.

Vesper Martini

£10.00

James Bond does not drink Martinis! I mean fine, he does, in many a movie, but in the original Casino Royale novel he drinks Vespers. A Vesper is basically the bastard offspring of a Gin Martini and a Vodka Martini. Why decide which when you can have both? Gin, Vodka, and Lillet, a very punchy, very sophisticated, very…. Bondish cocktail. You also don’t get asked the endless questions you get asked by bartenders when you order a Gin or Vodka Martini.

Amaretto Sour

£9.50

I always wonder about the name of these, as Amaretto is one of the sweetest things known to man. But then that happens when you are a liquer made from Amaretti Biscuits. We make ours with a mix of Four Roses Bourbon and Lazzaroni Amaretto to tone the sweetness down just a touch. Then it’s finished with lemon juice, Angostura bitters, and egg white. 

You can have it without the egg white but trust me, you’ll miss it if you do.

Aperol Spritz

£9.50

Take Aperol, add prosecco, finish with soda. You know what this is afterall. Orange and refreshing, perfect for sitting in the sun, sitting downstairs, sitting in your living room….. anywhere really

Kir Royale

£9.50

A very very traditional mixture of Creme de Cassis (blackcurrant liquer) and prosecco. It’s basically fizz and black but still well worth a go, eminently quaffable.

Caipirinha

£9.00

A “little countryside drink” from Brazil. Made from Cachaca (a brazilian rum made from sugar cane), fresh muddled lime and sugar, it’s deceptivly simply and strangely close to a Daiquri, however the Cachacha imparts a whole over level of flavour to them. I love them, the only problem is they hit your table, hit your tongue and suddenly you’ve gone through 5 of them and you’re a little bit wobbly

Daiquri

£9.00

Nobody knows where this drink came from. I like the story of Dr.Jennings Cox who apparently was an engineer in Cuba. He was out working and only had a bottle of rum, some sugar, and some limes on him. As one does. He mixed them together and the Daiquri was born. 

We serve our’s as it was meant to be, no added fruit, no juice, just the holy trinity of Cuban cocktails.

Dark And Stormy

£9.50

Whilst arguably it isn’t actually a cocktail, basically being a large Dark Rum & Ginger beer, it still holds a place in my heart simply because it features in one of my favourite films, “Cocktail” starring Tom Cruise. Yes, I am a a bartender geek. We make it the traditional way using fresh squeezed lime and Goslings Black Seal rum.

Hemmingway Daiquri

£10.00

So there was an author called Ernest Hemingway, who by all opinions was a bit of a lad. And a lush. He used to ask the bartenders in the La Floridita club in Cuba to make these for him. We don’t put quite as much Rum in as Hemmingway did but then I have licensing to deal with. Take a regular daquiri, get rid of the sugar, add Maraschino Liquer and balance with pink grapefruit juice. Sweet and dry at the same time with a bit of a boozy kick

Jungle Bird

£9.50

The taste of 1970’s Kuala Lumpur’s Hilton. Bracing fruity tropical drink of rich rum, pineapple juice, and a bitter backbone provided by the famed red aperitif, Campari. A perfect drink for the less summery of summer days, which round our ways are more regular than in the tropics of its conception. Welcome to the jungle baby.

Mai Tai

£9.50

In my opinion one of the best drinks to be born from the Tiki Culture craze that sprang up post depression America. The whole idea was that people needed to escape the memories of the Depression and Tiki drinks, with their heavy use of tropical rums and fruits filled that niche superbly well. A short boozy mix of White rum, Dark rum, orgeat (almond syrup) and lime juice. If you have only ever had a bad Mai Tai I’d love the chance to change your mind about this cocktail.

Mojito

£9.50

You know them, you love them, don’t tell any of my bartender friends but I happen to love them as well. A mix of rum, mint and lime is just a match made in heaven. It might not be the coolest drink anymore but a well made one is a gift from the heavens.

Pina Colada

£9.50

If you like piña coladas. And gettin’ caught in the rain. If you’re not into yoga. If you have half a brain. If you like makin’ love at midnight. In the dunes on the cape. Then I’m the love that you’ve looked for. Write to me and escape

Refashioned

£12.50

Basically the rum version of an old fashioned, we use Mount Gay XO as the base. I’d love to give you a more technical reason but the only one i have is that it tastes delicious

Zombie

£11.00

Not the song by the Cardigans but another drink born out of Tiki Culture. This one was created by a chap called Don The Beachcomber. A blend of 5 different rums, 2 liquers and tropical goodness it’s sweet and easy drinking but they used to say that 3 of them would turn you into a Zombie, so proceed with caution.

El Diablo

£10.00

Really, who’d a thunk that the zippy New-World spirit from the agave would match so well with a demure liqueur flavored with an Old-World fruit? But there’s just some kind of romance between the two that defies explanation; all you need to know is that separately, they can be very entertaining, but together, they’re dynamite. We mix Ocho Blanco tequila with blackberry liquer, a bit of lime juice and then top it with ginger ale.

Margarita

£9.50

Another cocktail made from a deceptively small list of ingredients. This iconic Mexican libation takes Ocho Tequila, Triple Sec (orange liquer) and lime juice and smashes them together in a beautiful fashion. If you remember tequila from that time you raided your mums liquor cabinet and got messily drunk this could be the way to reintroduce tequila into your diet. The ultimate question though? To salt or not to salt. Not to salt, in my opinion, We actually put a bit of Saline (salt water) in the drink when we mix it so does it really need the rim?

Paloma

£9.50

One of my favourite drinks and incredibly easy to make. Which is a plus when you work in a bar. Traditionally it would be Tequila and fizzy grapefruit (think Lilt), we make ours with fresh pink grapefruit and soda. Tall, fizzy, refreshing, pink. Banging cocktail.

Tommy’s Margarita

£9.50

A margerita for true tequila lovers. Created by a chap called Julio Bermejo in “Tommy’s Mexican” in San Francisco, this drink uses a reposado tequila rather than the blanco found in other margaritas. Reposado means rested, basically the tequila has sat in a wood barrel for a while. It also gets rid of the triple sec, replacing it with Agave Nectar, basically a sugar derived from the Agave plant, which tequila is made from. All that explanation aside this drink is really about the tequila and nothing else. If you like margaritas you’ll like this, I promise you

Bloody Mary

£9.50

They don’t just have to be for brunch! Sipsmith Vodka, Tomato Juice, Spicyness. Tell your server on a scale of 1-10 how hot you want it, but don’t say 10 unless you really mean it, bartenders tend to take that as a challenge.

Cosmopolitan

£9.50

Carrie Bradshaw loves them, I happen to love them too. Once upon a time a delightfully good bartender called Dale DeGroff came up with a drink of Stolichnaya Citron Vodka, Cointreau, a wee bit of lime and cranberry juice. The mans genius was deciding to spray flaming orange oils over the surface of the drink. Ostensibly to add another layer of flavour, actually because it looks bloody cool. Don’t listen to the stereotypes, a well made Cosmo is a brilliant thing

Espresso Martini

£9.50

The other half of Mr.Bradsell’s legacy, (the other half being the Bramble) apparently a model, possibly Kate Moss, asked Dick Bradsell for a cocktail “that would wake me up and F**K me up”. Whilst i couldnt possibly condone getting F**KED (thanks to licensing i have to champion responsible drinking), these are great. Mix Stolichnaya Vodka, Coffee Liquer and then some more coffee. It’s better than ordering a vodka and Redbull

Swiss Cartel

£9.50

A bit more of a modern classic rather than a classic…. classic. This tequila twist on a negroni comes to us from Meaghan Dorman at The Raines Law Room – New york. Swap the gin for an aged Ocho Reposado, swap the Campari for Amaro Montenegro and why not, lets keep the Sweet Vermouth.

Vodka Martini

£9.50

I’ve worked so many places where bartenders and waiters seem to take it as a personal challenge to make Vodka Martinis (and Gin Martinis for that matter) the most complicated thing in the world to order. They’re really easy. To order anyway, to drink one takes a bit of an effort as you’re basically drinking neat vodka. A VodkaMartini is a stirred down double measure of Vodka with a bit of dry vermouth. Despite its name dry vermouth is actually a little bit sweet. You’ll first be asked “what vodka do you want”, we use Sipsmith but try anything you like, you’ll then be asked wet or dry. Dry means less vermouth, wet means more vermouth. Wet is easier to drink (relatively) dry is a bit more hardcore. Then you’ll be asked olive or twist. Olive means….. wait for it…. we put an olive in. Twist means a bit of lemon peel. If they really want to be difficult they’ll then ask if you want it Dirty. Dirty means adding a bit of olive brine. Makes it salty. Here I go again breaking down barriers, how dare I. (please don’t mention that this is the same description as the one for the Gin Martini, i know)

French Martini

£9.50

The only thing French about this drink is that it uses Chambord. I might be coming up against false advertising now but we don’t actually use Chambord in our French Martinis. We use Creme de Mure (blackberry). Why? Well it just works better. Stolichnaya Vodka, Creme de Mure and pineapple juice. Sweet, frothy, red…. i have to stop now before i make an innuendo.

Long Island Iced Tea

£9.50

If anyone wants to tell you that this drink originated in prohibition times that person is a liar. They might tell you that this drink is the same colour as iced tea. They are a liar. In prohibition times booze was hard to come by, you want to tell me that they brought together 5 different spirits from 5 different countries in one cocktail? Whatevs. I think that a bartender in the 80’s asked a guest what they like and were told “everything”, so they gave the guest everything, Vodka, Gin, Rum, Tequila, Cointreau. And Coke.

Godfather

£9.50

Not just one of the best movies, and sequel ever made (as long as you ignore Godfather 3. And please ignore Godfather 3), its actually a quite decent cocktail. Sort of halfway between an Old Fashioned and an Amaretto Sour. Jamesons and Lazzaroni Amaretto, stirred down to stop it inducing a diabetic coma. If you like the sweeter side of life this one might be for you.

Rusty Nail

£9.50

Deceptively simple but still a great little short. A mix of Johnny Walker Black Label whiskey and Drambuie Whiskey Liquer. Drambuie is sort of hard to explain, basically a scotch liquer flavoured with honey and heather, plus a lot of other stuff. Scottish and more Scottish, get it before devolution happens.

Whiskey Sour

£9.50

The drink that gave birth to Amaretto Sours…. i’m really not sure if i can forgive the Whiskey Sour for that… but C’est la vie. Johnny Walker Black Label shaken with lemon, sugar, and egg white. As always you can do it without the egg but if you do you’re sort of missing the point

Pisco Sour

£9.50

From the chilly mountains of Peru comes a light, and refreshing sour. No words should be necessary. It’s just awesome.

Negroni Sbagliato

£9.50

A slightly boozier version of an Americano. Sweet Vermouth, Campari and finished with prosecco. The most Italian thing since pasta.
