A sweet & sour cocktail with some serious tang to it! Constructed with Midori, Cointreau & fresh citrus.
The classic Margarita dates back to the 1930s. Made well and you’ll be coming back for more.

The Cosmopolitan, also know as the Cosmo, has been around since the 1970s but made popular by the infamous TV show, Sex in the City.

The original Trader Vic Mai Tai calls for Amber rum and a dark Jamaican rum balanced with fresh lime and orgeat. Heavy on the rum and full of flavour.
The Breakfast Martini is a creation of the legendary bartender, Salvatore Calabrese. Created back in 1996, this is one of Salvatore’s signature cocktails.

With too many Box Car variations out there, how do you decide which one to make? With or without sugar rim? Lemon or lime juice? We’ve got the low down on the tastiest Box Car recipe you’ll come across.
Ounce Gin works remarkably well in a White Lady. The orange & vanilla notes from the gin compliment the orange liqueur and citrus within the cocktail. Chin chin!
The signature drink of the gentlemen’s club of the same name, the Pegu Club. Commonly served with either a twist of lime or fresh grapefruit peel.
