Stonegate’s Classic Estatehas launched a new drinks menu for the summer season. The new menu, which will be available for three months from Monday 1 June until Tuesday 1 September, sees a focus on fruit flavoured beverages.
The new drinks range introduces fruit based cocktails in the form of a Strawberry Spritz (above) – a sparkling summer sensation of delicately soft Galanti Prosecco sweetened with strawberry daiquiri puree, as well as strawberry flavoured Pimms with a hint of mint. This fruity twist on the popular seasonal favourite provides the perfect summer cooler and is great for sharing with friends.
Also on the menu is Liefmans Fruitesse, a refreshing beer that is ripened on real cherries in the cellar. Blended with natural fruit juices of strawberry, raspberry, cherry, billberry and elderberry, this provides the perfect thirst-quencher on a hot summer’s day.
Gins for the summer season
The menu hosts a selection of five gins to deliver the ultimate summer gin and tonic menu, each served to perfection in its own beautiful glassware or teapot serve. The collection includes Bombay Sapphire, Whitley Neill, Gin Mare (above), Tanqueray No Ten and Hendrick’s gins, which can be served alongside Fever Tree tonic and various fruit wedges.
The star of the gin collection is Hendrick’s Flora Dora sharing cocktail, which is a concoction of gin infused with cucumber and rose petals, mixed with lemon juice, strawberry daiquiri puree and Fentimans ginger beer, served in a classic tea set.
Sam Maynard, Marketing Manager at Stonegate Pub Company, said, “We have worked with various drink suppliers to develop a range of gins with distinctly different flavour profiles. Using high quality gins such as Whitley Neil, which is distilled in small batches in an antique copper pot, we are giving our customers the choice to try a wider range of new products. The Spanish Gin Mare, is a must try for gin lovers, as it challenges preconceptions of what gin should taste like and is set to be a big hit!”
