DIY Cocktails: a sunny Florida cocktail

It's weeks like these when many of us, still reluctant to face the wind and rain of Scotland in January, dream of warmer climes.

That's why this week's cocktail takes inspiration from the sunshine state, Florida.

A favourite at our Oyster bar, the bright colours of Grenadine, pineapple and orange instantly evoke a sunnier mood…too good to save for summer.


2 oz of Grenadine syrup

2 ½ oz of pineapple juice

½ teaspoon of icing sugar


1 Fill a coconut glass with ice and add Grenadine syrup.

2 In a blender cup add two cubes of ice and the remaining ingredients.

3 Blend for ten seconds.

4 Slowly pour into glass to float the juice on top of the Grenadine syrup.

5 Garnish with a cherry, mint leaf and orange slice
