The Thoroughbred

Unlike a trusty steed, this cocktail’s got a spicy kick- Fever-Tree ginger beer is brought in line with a dash of Angostura bitters, some fresh fragrant lime and Bombay Sapphire. It’s then bound together with seasonal cloudy apple juice.

As 90-95% of what we taste comes from what we smell, it’s really important to get your nose right inside the glass when imbibing a mixed drink or cocktail. For this very reason, we no longer use plastic straws at Laverstoke Mill, so that you get a fuller drinking experience by smelling and tasting the drink at the same time. We use the ‘Copa de Balon’ balloon glass (available in our Gin Shop at Laverstoke Mill) for this very reason. However, if you don’t have one, use a large Burgundy red wine glass instead, as they also work well.
