Continuing our Top Ten Summer Cocktails feature we have reached the top 3
Joseph Miller, top Mixologist at Blackfriars in Newcastle, and voted second best in the world by Brockmans Gin, has been revealing his Top 10 cocktails for this summer in readiness for the Great Northern Food and Drink Festival.
“These are the top most popular cocktails which we will be serving for the summer, as well as an extensive menu, but these epitomise summer in a glass,” explains Joseph.
3. LONG ISLAND ICED TEA
This is one of my personal favourites. Equal parts of:
Pour all ingredients into a Boston tin along with some lemon juice and sugar syrup, and shake with ice. Pour into a tall glass with ice and top with Coca Cola. You can substitute the Coca Cola with Cranberry Juice, and this is called a Long Beach Iced Tea.
The Great Northern Food & Drink Festival takes place at Scampston Hall near Malton, North Yorkshire on 28th, 29th and 30th August.
There will be over 200 vendors and 20,000 visitors expected during the course of the three days.
