Spring seasonal cocktails

Ingredients foraged from the garden and the blossoming of Spring, make these latest cocktails perfect for the new season.

Our head mixologist, Tom Smith, has been busy creating a seasonal selection of handcrafted cocktails. Taking inspiration from the Yorkshire countryside, Tom has focused on using flavours and ingredients all sourced from the local area. 

Debuting at The Coach House bar this Spring, expect to see these fruity and vibrant cocktails, alongside our signature drinks we’ve all come to love.

So what’s Tom's favourite seasonal cocktails?

“My two latest creations, Regal Rhubard and Strawberry and Basil Daiquiri, are ideal for a lunch or dinner. Especially when spending a lazy sunny afternoon in The Coach House courtyard. Both cocktails were very much designed with the season in mind, and where possible we've foraged ingredients from our woodland and Kitchen Garden to create the freshest and boldest of flavours.”

Don't forget to try Tom's Garden, it's a super delicious gin based cocktail, with dashes of apple and elderflower. It doesn't get more spring like. 

Fancy giving our cocktails a go at home?
