Classics A brief history of the Cocktail.
The first description of the word 'cocktail' that appeared in print was in 1806, in the Balance and Colombian repository, a publication from Hudson New York. A gentleman wrote in and asked the question 'what is a cocktail', in which the editor replied, a cocktail is stimulating liquor composed of spirits of any kind, sugar, water and bitters. Since then the cocktail has gone through many transformations. Our Classics list is like a time line of the greats ranging from the 1800s
modern day. If your favourite is not on there please ask the staff and they will do their best to accommodate. Happy Drinking.
Mint Julep: 20 Bourbon with muddled mint leaves and sugar all tossed together with crushed ice. The history of the Mint Julep is a little cloudy; we do know
that the first time it appeared in print was around 1803.
Originally made with a peached brandy, the julep
nowadays is served with bourbon. It is also the national
drink of the Kentucky derby.
Pimms No1: 18 Pimms topped up with lemonade and garnished with seasonal fruit. Pimms was first produced in 1823 by a gentleman called
James Pimm. It is a gin based spirit with quinine and herbs
and is also meant to be served as an aid to help
digestion. It was originally served in a no1 tankard, hence
Sazerac: 22 Remy Martin VS stirred with Peychaurds Bitters and sugar, Served with a Lee Fee absinthe wash. Mr Peychaurd invented his bitters in the late 1790's for
medicinal purposes, While in New Orleans he started
working with a local Bar owner and mixing the bitters with
a Cognac (Sazerac de forge et Fils) that was being
imported. This cocktail is now considered the official
cocktail of world cocktail week.
Sours: 20 Whisky or Bourbon shaken with lemon juice and sugar. Stained with a dash of bitters. The sours started of a whole big family of cocktails from
the Collins to the Fizz to the Rickey. It also started the way
for the margaritas, Sidecars and Daiquiris. Sours can be
made with almost any spirit or liqueur!
Dark and Stormy: 20 Goslings navy seal rum mixed with fresh limes and Goslings ginger beer. There is a bit of mystery behind this classicA bartender
made a sailor a glass of ginger beer and left out the rum.
The rum then gets added and it creates a dark cloud
over the ginger beer. The sailor then quoted Thats a
storm cloud that neither a fool nor a dead man would
Martinez: 19 Tanqueray Gin shaken with Martini Rosso and Maraschino liqueur. The Martinez is the grandfather of the Martini. Originally made by Jerry 'The Professor' Thomas. This drink was made for a gold miner on his way to the town of Martinez. The Drink then reappeared in Thomass guide in
1887. Manhattan: 20 A blend of Canadian Club 12yr, Rosso vermouth and Angostura bitters. The Manhattan was invented in at a banquet in the
honour of the Presidential candidate Samuel J Tilden, in
the Manhattan club in New York by a Dr Iain Marshal.
Old Fashioned: 20 Bourbon Whiskey stirred with Sugar and bitters.
The description of the Old Fashioned very much fits the
description used in 1806 to describe a cocktail. The name
however was first used in the Pendennis club in Kentucky.
It was the favourite drink of President Harry S Truman.
Mojito: 18 A classic simple mixture of Bacardi Rum, fresh limes, sugar and Mint. All served up with crushed ice. The history of the Mojito is a bit of a myth. One story is
that it used to be the drink of Sir Francis Drake back in the

the drink soon started to change and by the early 1900s
it was unofficially the official drink of Cuba

gin and used local produce to mix up this drink.
French 75: 17 Gin shaken with lemon juice and sugar topped with bubbles.
Invented in Harrys Bar in Paris, a customer referred to this
drink as in having the same kick as the 75mm howitzer
artillery gun used in the 1st world war.
Mary Pickford: 18 A mix of Bacardi Superior Rum, Pineapple juice with a
dash of Maraschino liqueur and a drop of grenadine. This cocktail was named after the original American
sweet heart. Created by a bartender in the hotel Seville

Negroni: 20 A classic balance of Plymouth gin, Martini Rosso and Campari. Count Camillo Negroni walks in to a bar, and after a bad
