Monday 10th October to Sunday 16th October:

Ah Lillet! That delectable aperitif that flowed at all the greatest parties throughout Europe in the 20’s and 30’s. The Lillet brothers created this blend of Bordeaux wines and hand crafted fruit liqueurs and it is still produced today in Podensac, France where the idea was originally conceived.  It’s fruit flavours are beautifully enhanced in this cocktail by the addition of fresh raspberries and a good splash of Schweppes Russian Wild Berry.


Monday 17th October to Sunday 23rd October: White Lady

You can’t go far wrong with a classic Gin cocktail and the White lady is certainly that. Using British Tanquery gin, fresh lemon juice and a splash of cointreau, it is just the refreshing, citrusy drink you need to brighten your day, carry you into dinner or freshen you up after a long day or a long leisurely dinner. So yes basically any time of the day is White Lady time!
