Overview

At the restaurant itself are a choice of 4 Non-alcoholic cocktails on offer: Seedside, Virgin Bellini, Driver’s Julep and Jasmine.

Seedside

What is it? : A tall clear refreshing glass of summer flavoured with spice

What does it taste like?

Gin, a spirit deriving from juniper berries, is the idea behind this drink. It starts of by using the alcohol free spirit, Seedlip Garden, which is noted for its grassy, floral taste as a base, and thus providing the setting for this concoction. Then, a touch of lime juice and mint are added to enhance it’s already entwined with nature taste. To bring these flavours to life, a touch of sugar is added to sweeten it off, and then finally topped with soda. The subtlety, not usually associated with a mocktail, are surprising and is the start of a very grown-up drink, and not just an overdose of sugar upon sugar, like most mocktails.

The light touch, works well, with the predominantly fish dinner and provided a subtle backdrop to the meal itself. The sharpness of the base drink, cuts through any sweet or heavy sauces.

Jasmine

What is it? : A sweet, fruity, sophisticated drink

What does it taste like?

This tropical beauty blends pineapple, strawberry and jasmine to give a smooth sweet taste. To give it that added silky edge, a dash of egg white is added. Lastly, a touch of lime finishes this drink and is sophisticatedly served in a coupette glass. The tropical fruits complement each other while the jasmine, a subtly sweet flavour compliments the sweet tones highlighted in this mocktail.

The sweet drink is sipped slowly through dinner complimenting the light dinner. Alternatively, it could also work well as a contrast with hearty or meatier dishes.
