Cocktail inspiration from French 75

As the hospitality sector begins to fully re-open, Nottingham has been blessed with yet another great new bar to enjoy a cocktail or two.

What’s more is that French 75, which has recently opened in the city, is managed by Joe Horseman – the son of our very own Managing Director, Mike!

To get you into the cocktail mood and perhaps provide a dash of inspiration, we asked Joe and the team at French 75 to come up with their own recipe for you to try at home.

Over to you, Joe…

French 75 is a luxury cocktail bar at the top of Nottingham’s Friar Lane. Right next to the castle, the bar boasts Parisian style sidewalk seating, a Mediterranean bijou parlour, New York style cigar bar area and a secluded utopian garden. The team and I would love to welcome you to enjoy some carefully and lovingly crafted cocktails next time you’re in Nottingham.

In the meantime we have created the perfect summer cocktail for you all to enjoy at home this summer. Here is the recipe for The Suntrap Cocktail:

Add to a chilled wine glass:

  • 50ml limoncello
  • 25ml elderflower liqueur/cordial
  • Half a squeezed lemon
  • Then top up with a good soda water and garnish with lemon peel

Enjoy and we hope to see you soon!
