I’m quite a fan of the cocktails at Lost and Found on Bennetts Hill, so much so a few weeks ago I spent an entire Sunday in there working my way through the new menu. The following Monday was brutal…
The cocktail list has had a revamp as has the venue itself, which reopened during a snow storm in March. A popular spot for drinks and food, I last visited Lost and Found for a Boozy Brunch a few months ago. On Sundays it has a much more relaxed vibe (on Saturday nights it’s rammed) with live music on in the afternoons. It’s a lovely spot for some casual drinks with friends, with friendly staff. I enjoyed some really tasty cocktails during my recent visit that were both pretty and well made, so I thought I’d share some of them with you.
First up an Aviation (£7.95) a short drink combining Tanqueray Gin, Briottet Violette, Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur and lemon juice. Inspired by my pal Helen, who loves an Aviation, I picked this because I enjoy the sour taste and colour. A firm favourite of mine and well made by the bar staff. Onto the next and the Ms Emily B. Kingsley (£9.75) is made with Kokomo Gin, Lanique Rose, Briottet Rhubarbe, lemon juice, Franklin & Sons tonic water. This was favourite drink of the day; super refreshing and a delicate floral flavour.
Next up the La Capilla (£9.25) which was a herby delight. Thyme Sauza Hornitos Tequila, Licor 43, Benedictine, grapefruit juice, Angostura bitters and lime juice are combined for a rather moreish drink. Finally a perfectly made Old Fashioned (£8.25) completed my cocktail journey. If you’re going to have a final drink this may as well be it. Strong and short, mine was made with Bourbon (you can choose whisky and rum too) Angostura bitters, maple syrup and orange peel. It’s potent stuff, and it’s glorious.
And that’s your lot! If you’d like to check out the venue or the weekend bottomless brunch you may find this post useful.
