Mead Cocktails


Bees Knees

1 measure of Irish Gin

2 measures of Atlantic Dry Mead

½ measure of honey syrup

½ measure of fresh lemon juice

Shaken and poured in a saucer cocktail glass with a lemon twist garnish.

This is a mead take on the classic 1920's prohibition cocktail. Back then the addition of honey and lemon was used to mask the taste and smell of bathtub gin.

Red Bonny Sangria

1 measure of Cointreau

2 measures of Wild Red Mead

2 measures of cranberry juice

dash of lime juice

Serve over ice with an orange slice.

This Celtic Mead Sangria is inspired by Kinsale’s infamous red-headed pirate Anne Bonny.

Created by Debbie Foott at the Blue Haven Hotel, Kinsale.
