Champagne Daiquiri (£10.50) 

Done it, guys. Done it. Figured out how to make champagne tastier, somehow. First we throw the champagne out entirely, recreate the flavour profile with science and combine it with Havana 7 rum. The champagne industry is on the phone. ‘Please,’ it is saying, please stop. You’ve changed the game. We’re on our knees, here’. No. We refuse to stop.

Tomato Cosmopolitan (£11)

You know that summer when you went a bit weird and tried to grow tomatoes out of a big sack of soil you kept out on a sunless balcony? And every time you gave the tomatoes plant food you secretly wondered what it might taste like? Just a swig, couldn’t hurt, could it? Just… just a sip? Well, yes, it really could. This tastes like how you thought that would taste, but is far less likely to kill you. 

A Lychee Story (£10.50)

A Daisy classic: a lychee and Thai basil spritz that hits the same off-dry sweet spot a good Reisling does, but. You know. With way more lychee flavour, obviously. Incredibly thirst-quenching: for the ideal drinking experience, try and order one around sunset. 

Five Go To Mexico (£11)

Invokes heavy ‘fanning yourself with a Panama hat by the side of a pool amidst the heat of the South American sun’ vibes, this one. The kind of margarita the Man From Del Monte would get in if he was having a big one. The Man From Del Monte, he says: sesh.

Ant Acid (£11)

Uh oh: The Most Tedious Person You Know just learned the word petrichor, and now they won’t stop going on about it. “It’s sort of like… the smell of the rain, you know?” Yeah no yeah I know. Yeah it’s earthy, yeah. But also pregnant. Yeah it’s clean but there’s a crackle to the air while the leaves are green and heavy. Yeah no I get it. Anyway: this one is the petrichor cocktail. It has meadowsweet, fig, formic acid and vodka.

Mole Manhattan (£13) 

Tastes sophisticated, like smoking a cigar in a library. Well not that, obviously: it’s a mole liqueur it take us 3 months to concoct, combined with Mexican corn whiskey and agave and Cynar. But it’s very mature, in a way you can’t quite put your finger on: you’re wearing a smoking jacket, you’re reading instead of watching TV, you’re reciting a poem from memory. You have a Masters degree. You’ve finally fucking grown up.  

Melon Baller (£11)

One of the component parts of this cocktail is so pure and wicked that it has to be kept in a glass tincture bottle like a witch might trap a haunted spirit. If you’re really nice and promise to tip well we’ll give you exactly one drop of it to slurp off the back of your hand like a drug. The effect it will have on your person is a bit like the way Popeye’s entire body reacts to spinach.  

Rum Wasn’t Lilt In A Day(£11) 

Smoked pineapple cordial combines with grapefruit soda and a large glug of agricole rum for a long, sparkling the-sun-is-going-down-and-it-is-time-to-chill-a-little, supremely crushable drink. Mad how the soft drinks industry has never made anything with a totally tropical taste, isn’t it? Take note, beverage magnates! This one’s a winner!

Sherry The Hatchet (£12) 

Why were the Famous Five always drinking ginger beer? Actually: why were the Famous Five always overhearing criminals discuss their plans, at length, while hiding inside caves? It was always smugglers the Famous Five went after, as well, wasn’t it. Just decent working men and women trying to make a living. Maybe go after the bankers, yeah? Maybe go after those corrupt PPE contracts! But no, no. The Famous Five are setting their dogs on some smugglers. Fucking cops. Anyway where wa— ah yeah. Tastes like how you imagined ginger beer tasted when you were a kid, but it has mezcal and sherry in it. AFFAB!

To Be, Chinot-to Be (£10.50) 

A love letter to going to the weird all-night shop on the corner and perusing their

soda section: bitter Chinotto soda combines with Sipsmith gin and Vanilla Galliano for something that lands somewhere between a vanilla Coke and the cough syrup you got as a treat when you were a kid. Hard to explain, easy to enjoy.

HVT (£3.50 NA)

Sweet, sharp, crisp. No, we’re not describing a premium coleslaw. It’s a drink. Although: kind of in the mood for coleslaw now. Local honey with a splash of muscatel vinegar, cucumber ribbons and tonic. 

Tequila Con Verdita (£4 / 3 for £10)

Two shots: one a perfect, Whole Foods-style green drink, and then a single measure of good tequila. It’s very ‘Gwyneth Paltrow smoking one cigarette a week’, if that makes sense. 

Martiny (£5)

We extremely voided the warranty on what our lawyers are insisting we call a ‘branded herb-based liqueur machine’ to make it pump out teeny tiny, ice-cold Beefeater martinis. 

House Cordials (£3..50/£7.50)

Our house cordials, available as a highball (with soda) or gimlet (with NA gin) – with Hay, Mango or Citrus cordials


We have Snake Oil Barbecue in residence in our kitchen.
