Cheers to World Cocktail Day!

Yes, it’s World Cocktail Day on May 13th 2019! What a great day to try your hand at cocktails and mocktails – both of which are very ‘on trend’ at the moment.

World Cocktail Day is a celebration of cocktails around the globe, marking the publication date of the first definition of a cocktail on May 13th in 1806.

A New York newspaper once defined a cocktail as “a stimulating liquor, composed of spirits of any kind, sugar, water and bitters…” in response to a reader’s question. A cocktail, as we know it, is used to refer to a drink that contains two or more ingredients with at least one of the ingredients alcohol. The word ‘cocktail’ has now become embedded in our drinking vocabulary as the drinks are widely accessible with their ingredients easy to adapt to suit every taste.

Before you dust off your cocktail shaker or raid the herb counter at the supermarket, you can now enjoy a fantastic, hand crafted one at China Fleet. We are pleased to announce we have a new cocktail supplier here with a whole range of new drinks. Craft Cocktail Company produce professionally mixed cocktails using the finest natural ingredients and premium spirits. Created by the owner of the world-renowned London Cocktail Club and multi-award winning mixologist JJ Goodman, they lock their love of cocktails into every bottle.

So if you don’t know your Sunset Spritz from your Reggae Rum Punch, fear not…..let us guide you to a taste sensation and a sure recipe for success!

Definitely cheers to that!
