Perfect drink to have with some oysters on our patio in the sun!
The Blackberry Treasure is a balance of fruit and citrus. Idea behind it was to make something for the patio that was simplistic in nature, but complex in flavour that could pair well with oysters and seafood from our menu. The base of the cocktail is Cazadores tequila blanco- a perfect match with oysters and citrus. Other liqueurs involved are L’Heritier-Guyot Creme de Cassis, fresh hand picked blackcurrents from Dijon France and paired with Luxardo Marachino Liqueur adding a beautiful nose of aromatics and a deeper richer flavour that adds to the fresh muddled blackberries. To balance out the sweetness of the liqueurs and to add some complexity to the cocktail we use orange bitters and fresh lemon. The lemons acidity finishes off the cocktail and brings it to life making for a refreshing patio cocktail. – Beverage Manager, Neil Charlesworth
