The country is buzzing with anticipation for the World Cup and the Slug and Lettuce bar team in Marlow have embraced the spirit of Brazil by presenting a selection of exotic drinks for summer – the Carnival Cocktails – which will be introduced on Wednesday 7th May.
“Our carnival cocktails range is colourful and fun, inspired by the culture of South America, ” said Nicola Stuart, marketing manager at Stonegate Pub Company. “We will be featuring six new drinks including classics with a twist such as the Cuba Libre – a blend of Havana Club aged 3 years; lime; sugar and Coca-Cola, served in a tin. Guests can also enjoy the classic Caipirinha, but with the option of adding morango (strawberry) or maracujá (passion fruit) for a fruiter flavour.”
Savour the Copacabana Crush, a concoction of Disaronno; Midori melon liqueur; lime and cranberry juice, try the creamy Soleros – a blend of Passoã passion fruit liqueur; Midori melon liqueur; Absolut Vanilia; orange and pineapple juice; milk and cream or sip on the fiery Blue Brazil Zombie – a mix of Havana Club aged 3 years; blue Curaçao; pineapple juice and Schweppes lemonade, served in a zombie glass.
Nicola added: “In addition to the cocktails, the menu also features a new shot – the Friendly Cashew, a traditional Brazilian favourite. First, chew a cashew and then cleanse your pallet with the smooth Sagatiba Cachaça.”
To complement the new drinks choice, the food team at the Slug and Lettuce have created a Street Food Platter, presenting guests with an appetizing mix of exquisite choices including char-grilled chimichurri-glazed churrasco skewers such as steak, king prawn, chicken breast and spicy sausage; croquettes, potato wedges, artisan bread and a selection of sauces.
