If you’re not sure where to start, we have chosen 5 classic cocktails that we have on our menu for you to enjoy. So whether you’re looking for something fruity and sweet or something stronger, these drinks will surely please anyone’s picky palate. 

If none of the cocktails suits your taste, then take a look at our drink menu which features a large variety of cocktails to pair with any meal.  

1. Grey Goose Vodka Martini


For a classic vodka martini with a twist, order the Grey Goose Vodka Martini. This cocktail is made with Grey Goose vodka, vermouth, and olives. It’s garnished with a twist of orange peel and is sure to show your date that you enjoy a premium drink.  Two versions exist: one is stirred and the other is shaken. Both taste great. 

2. Dark & Stormy

The Dark & Stormy is a classic cocktail that is perfect for a date night. This cocktail is made with dark rum (Goslings Black Rum or Kraken Spiced Rum), ginger beer, and lime juice. The Dark & Stormy is a refreshing and flavorful cocktail that is sure to please your date.

Dark & Stormy is traditionally made with ginger beer although there are some variations of the recipe that use ginger ale and some would even use carbonated water. Feel free to experiment and perfect your drink order so you can have your own signature drink. 

If you’re doing date night at home, we recommend adding plenty of ice and a fresh lime wedge for a refreshing taste. You can enjoy the Dark & Stormy with your meal or on it’s own. 

3. Winter Margarita

The Winter Margarita is a favourite by many due to its unique taste and flavour. If you’re looking for a drink that turns heads, a cocktail made with egg whites is sure to do just that. The addition of egg whites gives the Winter Margarita its tangy and slightly sweet taste. The Winter Margarita also uses Corazon Reposado Tequila, and La Vida Mezcal. The egg whites may be substituted with AquaFaba  (a liquid leftover from cooked chickpeas and a perfect alternative to egg white) with a lime and a pinch of salt. 

There are many ways to make a white margarita, but they all have one thing in common: they’re invigorating and delicious. This classic recipe is made with tequila, triple sec, and lime juice, but there are many variations out there. Some use different types of tequila, others add fruit juices or syrups. No matter what ingredients you use, a white margarita is sure to be a hit.

4. White Linen 

There’s nothing quite like sipping on a refreshing cocktail on a warm summer night. 

One of our favourites for a night like this is the White Linen. This refreshing drink is made with Hendricks Gin, St Germain, Lemon, Cucumber, Egg White, or AquaFaba. 

What’s interesting about this drink is the addition of St. Germain which is a liquor made from Elderflowers. These elderflowers are hand-picked sometime in the late spring in France and also in the UK. You will see these tiny beautiful frothy white flowers blooming from Early May until August.

5. Passion Fruit Caipirinha 

This classic Brazilian cocktail is both tropical and easy to prepare. A Passion Fruit Caipirinha is made with Cachaca Sagatiba, passion fruit, and lime. The cachaça is a distilled spirit made from fermented sugarcane juice, and the passion fruit adds a tart and juicy flavour to the drink. 

The Passion Fruit Caipirinha is a refreshing and flavorful cocktail that is perfect for sipping on a warm summer evening. You can garnish the cocktail with the remaining passion fruit you have for an added artistic twist.
