Majestic's Old Fashioned

Old Fashioned


A classic cocktail that marries Bourbon with a mixture of simple syrup and bitters.

Ingredients:
50ml of the best quality Bourbon – we recommend Woodfood Reserve Bourbon Whiskey
One teaspoon of simple syrup (or to simplify, one crushed brown sugar cube)
2-3 dashes of Angostura Bitters
Orange peel to garnish

Method:
Place the simple syrup or sugar cube, bitters and the whiskey in an Old Fashioned glass and mix
Fill with desired amount of ice – we recommend 1 large cube to prevent over-dilution
Stir until the glass is chilled
Garnish with orange peel

Our insider tip: If you want to try something a little different, switch up the traditional Old Fashioned for a Dark Rum Old Fashioned. For this, we love Brugal 1888 Double Aged Rum.

Majestic's Negroni

Negroni


This highly refreshing Italian aperitivo is a perfect balance of three complementary parts.

Ingredients:
25ml Your favourite London Dry Gin
25ml Campari
25ml Sweet red Vermouth - we recommend Regal Rogue Bold Red
Slice of orange to garnish


Method:
Add all ingredients into a tumbler glass
Fill with ice

Stir until the glass is chilled
Garnish with a slice of orange

Our insider tip: If you fancy a lighter version of this cocktail, you can transform it into a Negroni Sbagliato by substituting the Gin for 50ml Prosecco. For everything you need, check out our Negroni Sbagliato Cocktail Kit.


Majestic's Kir Royale

Kir
Royale


Elegant and unfussy, this is a fabulous French cocktail to enjoy before or after any meal.

Add your Créme de Cassis to a flute glass

Our insider tip: Add a raspberry or blackberry to the glass for a pop of freshness. Find everything you need in our Kir Royale Cocktail Kit.

Baileys
Espresso
