Three of the best: Summer cocktail recipes

1 August 2018 / Food /

As we continue to bask in this glorious British sunshine, we’ve come to love a refreshing and summery tipple more than ever.

The Glasshouse’s terrace is the perfect spot to savour a pre-dinner drink, especially with this summer’s Ayala Brut Nature Bar pop-up. So, we asked our head bartender, Tom Doherty, to share three of his favourite cocktail recipes that lend themselves perfectly to a warm summer’s evening.

Rhubarb Cosmopolitan

A quintessential English twist on a modern classic

Rhubarb Cosmopolitan at The Grove hotel, Hertfordshire

Combine the Chase Rhubarb Vodka, Cointreau liqueur, lime juice, cranberry juice and La Fee Rhubarb Bitters (if using) in a cocktail shaker with some ice. Shake vigorously for 10 seconds before fine straining into a cosmopolitan glass. Finish with a garnish of orange peel.

Limoncello Bellini

A refreshing and light concoction to tantalise the taste buds, this has become a firm favourite on the Ayala Brut Nature Bar pop-up’s menu.

Spoon the raspberry puree into a Champagne glass, followed by the limoncello, and then gently top up the glass with Ayala Brut Champagne. Give it a gentle stir before serving straight away.

Garden Orchard

This is a refreshing non-alcoholic invention, which is best garnished with freshly-picked mint.

Prepare the green tea and leave to cool. Muddle the cucumber in a Boston glass before adding the green tea, lemon juice and agave nectar with some ice. Shake vigorously for ten seconds before fine straining into a jam jar. Garnish generously with a sprig of mint and serve.

Please ensure to check all allergens in the ingredients before serving.

Please note that our cocktail menu changes regularly, so not all the above cocktails will be available at The Glasshouse
