Craft Mocktails: Redefining Mixology at Doyle Bar

Step into  Doyle and you’ll find a meticulous selection of  three signature mocktailswhich redefine the art of non-alcoholic mixology.

At  The Pembroke, the culinary experience is enhanced by  two reimaginedclassics. The Spiced Espresso No-Tini, blending Seedlip Spice, Lyre’s coffee original, agave syrup, and fresh-brewed espresso, offers a post-dinner caffeine kick.
