Recipes from the bar
5 cocktails served full of coastal flavours.
Devon and Cornwall have always been up there in the UK’s favourite foodie destinations. With its ready availability of fresh seafood and thriving culture of independent and artisanal producers of some of the most delicious ales and spirits you can imagine, it’s really no surprise. To celebrate and support our seaside roots, we’ve compiled a list of 5 cocktails now being served at Fistral Beach Hotel chocked full of coastal flavours.
The Rose Garden Cocktail
Crafted along the wild Cornish coast, Tarquin’s Gin was launched in early 2013 and very quickly found its way into shops and bars not just in Cornwall, but up and down the country. People couldn’t get enough of Tarquin’s deliciously Cornish flavour profile. Distilled with 12 different botanicals, many of which are sourced along the wild Cornish coast where their distillery is nestled, this gin is the perfect spirit to make up our Rose Garden. With delicious flavours of junipers, elderflower and rose, Fistral’s Rose Garden cocktail is the perfect companion on your stay with us. To taste it for yourself, request this cocktail the Cornish way at the bar!
What better way to refresh your palette and your summer afternoon with this irresistibly fresh and punch authentic Mojito Especial being served at Fistral’s Bay Bar. Its perfect combination of sweetness, citrus and herbaceous mint flavours remind us of the sea spray of the wild Cornish shores, with a touch tropical Caribbean flavour muddled in.
Elderflower Spritz (August cocktail of the month)
Once regarded as one of the most magically powerful of trees, elder is a favourite amongst mixologists, especially at this time of year. Our refreshing Elderflower Spritz will delight your taste buds– with its fresh and floral notes combined with its bubbly nature, you’re sure to enjoy this classic summertime drink.
The Gin Martini
Nestled amongst traditional boatbuilders and only accessible by boat, Salcombe Distilling Co. creates exceptional, handcrafted gin with quality at the forefront. If you’re after a cocktail that is delightfully loud, piney and has subtle fruity notes, our Gin Martini with Salcombe gin is the one for you.
This cocktail doesn’t mess around when it comes to flavour. Our Absolut Passion cocktail has an intense aroma of sun ripened passion fruit, followed by notes of raspberry and lime fruitiness. This sweet and smooth tasting beverage is the perfect choice for those wanting to relax, unwind and bask in the Cornish sunshine.
