Cocktail of the Week from Drury Buildings
Cider Berry Smash €8.50
The nights are longer and colder, and people are migrating to the winter cider cocktail. A mix of fruit reminds the drinker of the classic combination of apple and blackberry – yet another staple of comfort during dark evenings and cosy weekends. Additional spice from cloves adds an earthy aroma to this limited edition cocktail, and an extra floral flavour element to contrast with the sweetness of the berries and cider.
Cider Berry Smash is a long drink, perfect to drink slowly and enjoy. Although it has both cider and Irish Shortcross gin in it, the booze factor is significantly reduced by the length of the drink, the ice content and the relatively low percentage of the cider (5.3%), picking up the trend of low-alcohol long drinks from 2015.
All in all, it’s a comforting, yet refreshing, light drink that can be enjoyed all night, or as a palate cleansing aperitif before dinner. Cheers!
