Have a Movember Cocktail & Support Charity

Movember is fast becoming a time of year when you will see many guys sporting old-fashioned 'tashes around town. It's all to raise awareness and funds for men's health issues, in particular testicular & prostate cancer, which I'm sure you'll agree is a very good cause. 

Colin (our Sous Chef) and Brad (Bar Supervisor) from Waterloo have taken it upon themselves to support this good cause & grown 'tashes this Movember! To support them we are producing a Movember Cocktail menu called, "Tails & Tashes" & we will be giving proceeds from the cocktail sales to the Movember charity.

Here's some examples of what you can sample on the menu:

The Ron Burgundy... “Hey Ho! Poppa Burgundy’s here!”

As Ron Burgundy loves scotch, this cocktail is made up from Bells and Drambuie, with a dash of Butterscotch for less harshness. Served over ice, Poppa Burgundy style. £6.50

The Hulk Hogan... “I’m the man who made Wrestling famous!”

Famous for his “white handlebars”, this is a cocktail which uses Maker's Mark, fresh raspberries and white chocolate. It is a twist on the classic ‘old fashioned’, and is bound to make you rip your vest off! £7.50

The Tom Selleck... “Son, never throw a punch at a redwood!”

As Thomas Magnum was a ladies’ man, this is a sweet cocktail using Jim Beam, fresh orange slices, sugar, and egg white all shaken up. It’s finished over ice and is sure to get the ladies drooling. £7

The Charlie Chaplin... ”You'll find life is still worthwhile, if you just smile.”

This classic cocktail is renowned in America. It, like Charlie Chaplin is a bundle of laughter and consists of Jim Beam, Sweet Vermouth and Campari stirred up and served on the rocks. If this doesn’t tickle you then I don’t know what will! £7

Salvador Dali... ”Painting is an infinitely minute part of my personality.”

This "artistic" cocktail is full of flavour. It is made from bourbon, gin, orange and fresh lime. It portrays Dali’s paintings with flavours and is finished with fresh nutmeg and grated ginger. Aqui esta! £6.50

Freddie Mercury... ”I won’t be a rock star. I will be a legend.”

This cocktail will rock you! With cherry Red Stag, mint leaves, fresh fruits and sugar it is a take from the classic ‘Mint Julep’. It is built over crushed ice and decorated with mint and berries. Now that gets you singing! £7.50

Please remember that proceeds from these cocktail sales go to the Movember charity, so your assitance is appreciated!
