Summer Cocktails at The River Lee
There's nothing like a cocktail in the sunshine
Some drinks just go hand in hand with the summer. This is the season for ice-cold daiquiris, with rum, tropical fruits and plenty of Caribbean vibes. Or for a classic Gimlet, a simple and refreshing cocktail with gin and freshly squeezed lime juice. This is the time for fresh, zingy flavours, all accompanied with a dose of sunshine.
The River Lee has your summer sorted, with a brand new Martini Menu filled with the kind of cocktails that make you want to sit out on a balmy evening and catch up with friends. There’s no better place than on the Terrace on the Weir, either – you can unwind on this pretty, riverside terrace bar and make your way through the excellent selection of drinks. With enough options to suit any taste, there will definitely be something to tickle your fancy.
Take a look at the options below, from Cosmopolitans to Martinis, made with the best spirits on the market. And if you’re completely stumped, have a chat to one of the friendly and knowledgeable members of the bar team – they’ll be sure to recommend something you’ll love.
