Cocktail Menu May 2018.

Concept.

In 1872, Professor Jerry Thomas wrote "How to Mix Drinks, or the Bon Vivant's Companion", which was the worlds first cocktail book. Within the  book there are over 200 recipes for what the The Professor calls "fancy drinks", each separated into 12 categories. In 2003, Gary Regan wrote "The Joy of Mixology", and redefined the cocktail families for recent resurgence of the cocktail world. This menu is a marriage of both, taking six categories from each book and designing drinks around them. Each drink therefore is entirely different from the last, meaning there is a drink here for everyone. We're sure you'll enjoy our creations however, if you don't spot anything that tickles your fancy, please feel free to order off the menu.

Aberdeen is a city that has a long and compelling history, and this menu has been designed to the you on a touch of some of the many fascinating locations scattered throughout the Granite City.

Each cocktail has been designated with a colour, and with every cocktail, you will receive a badge.
