With the weather warming up and people escaping once more into their gardens for BBQ’s, bars opening up, and generally some sense of ‘normal’ returning, Joseph Miller, top Mixologist at Blackfriars in Newcastle, and voted second best in the world by Brockmans Gin, will reveal his Top 10 cocktails for this summer over the next 10 weeks, exclusively 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.


This is another classic recipe:

35ml tequila added with around 15ml triple sec (Cointreau)
20ml lime juice
5ml agave syrup (sugar syrup is good if you don’t have agave syrup)

Shaken and strained into a classic Martini glass with one half of the glass salt rimmed. Margaritas are dynamic to interpretation, you can add fruit such as watermelon or mangoes into the mixture. It can be served on the rocks and is a great sipper in the sunshine.
