These were some pre-dinner cocktails I had with D and our fried L.
I chose a Cucumber Cool cocktail; Beefeater Gin, lime juice, sugar cane syrup, tonic, infused and garnished with fresh cucumber. I thought it was lovely, and refreshing but a bit heavy-handed with the cane syrup.
L felt for a classic, the Pina Colada. She told us her coconutty concoction was nice, perfectly sweet..but nowhere near the amazing Pina Coladas she had on her recent cruise.
D chose a Wiser’s Boulevardier; a whisky cocktail with Campari and orange rind. He thought there was too much orange rinds, which made it a bit bitter.
We did have dinner, not just cocktails! I’ll post the food soon…stay tuned!
