A classic cocktail made out of things you might have in healthy supply. Combine the two, and you’ve got a great tasting drink – with the added bonus of bubbles!

  • ¾ ounce fresh lemon juice
  • ¾ ounce simple syrup
  • 2 ounces Champagne
  • Long spiral lemon twist (for serving)

To Make…

Combine gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker. Fill shaker with ice, cover, and shake vigorously until outside of shaker is very cold, about 20 seconds.

The staffed (dressed in quirky tabards) can provide a package to suit your event needs. From serving welcome cocktails to wine for your tables, bubbly for your toast and a full range of drinks in the evening. Either that, or the set and staff can be hired to serve your own drinks.

You can rest assured, if you entrust your bar arrangements to Doily’s Mini Bar, you won’t be disappointed. Helen and the team pride themselves on careful attention to detail with regard to the authentic retro look/feel and exceptional service.

The bar set can be set-up inside or outside (gazebo provided).
