You'll be left speechless by our incredible cocktails!

THE USUAL SUSPECTS

There are thousands of reciped for cocktails, but only a select few are universal to the entire drinking public.

FRENCH MARTINI
A fruitier version of the vodka Martini.
Raspberry Vodka, Chambord black raspberry liqueur and pineapple juice.
Shaken hard to create a delicious frothy head.

BLOODY MARY
Popular to cure the dreaded hangover (or cause one if you aren’t careful!)
Vodka and tomato juice seasoned to your liking.

MAI TAI
The origins of this cocktail are much disputed by two former industry giants - both claiming their recipe was first. Here is our recipe; Rum, Orange curacao, lime, orgeat, angostura bitters and pineapple juice. Surely a cocktail worth fighting for.

OLD TOM COLLINS
Like homemade lemonade with gin - what’s not to like??
Choose Regular, raspberry, strawberry or passionfruit twists.

WHISKY SOURS
Bourbon, Lemon juice, sugar syrup and eggwhite.
Don’t be put off by the raw eggwhite, it creates a smooth creamy texture.
Served in a traditional sours glass or on the rocks.

STUCK IN A RUT
Unique to us here at Sant Yago as it was created for one of our regular customers.
Creme de Cassis, peach schnapps, apple juice and a touch of soda.

MATADOR
A similar structure to the Margarita, but sweetened with some pinapple juice.
Matador is a brand of tequila, though usage of a specifically branded spirit here is variable.

SIP IT IN STYLE

We’ve all heard the saying: “You are what you eat.” But since the social culture of city life generally involves someone crafting a drink like a magic potion, the greater truth is you are what you drink.

ESPRESSO MARTINI
A boozy ‘pick me up’ or after dinner cocktail – the espresso is shaken with vodka, Kahlua, ameretto and sugar.
Alternatively add cinnamon, or ginger for a twist.

BELLINI MARTINI
A Bellini without the bubbles. Short and strong! Crème de Peche and smooth Grey Goose.

RUSTY NAIL
The ultimate Scottish cocktail! Scotch whisky has a fairly biting edge, but counterbalanced with the honeyed and herbaceous tones of Drambuie is a match made in heaven. Served with a warming orange peel.

REVOLVER
Made with rye-heavy Bulleit bourbon (Revolver – Bulleit… Get it?!) this 2003 craft cocktail is a great break away from the herbaceous flavours normally associated with bourbon cocktails. Accented with orange bitters and highlighted with coffee liqueur.

‘TAIL AS OLD AS TIME

Cocktails by their ancestral definition are composed of a spirit, bitters, sugar and water. Sugar might sometimes be in the form of liqueurs an cordials.
Water generally in the form of ice. These classics will never grow old.

OLD FASHIONED
Hailed as THE oldest cocktail, our preference of bourbon would be Woodford Reserve Distillers Select. A medium length bourbon with a woody heartiness and sweet finish.
Muddled with brown sugar and Angostura bitters, all stirred to 20% dilution.

TREACLE
Invented in the 1980’s by Dick Bradsell, the Treacle is a simple affair, but drinks dont get much better than this. It’s not much more than a rum-based Old Fashioned with apple juice, but these twists lend to a truely great drink.
With the apple served seperately you can judge the sweetness for yourself.

NEGRONI
Invented in Florence in 1919 at Caffe Riviore - when Count Negroni asked for an Americano cocktail (sweet vermouth, Campari and club soda) with gin swapped in for the standared soda.
This Cocktail has made gin palatable for many generations.

SAZERAC
One of the quintessential cocktails of new orleans.
Estimated to have first appeared around 1890, it may not be for everyone for the simple fact it contains absinthe which can easily dominate. Whiskey, Bitters, white sugar served in an absinthe rinsed glass.
Doesnt look much when served, but is unadulterated premium spirit perfectly mixed.
