Accent Magazine - October's Cocktail of the Month

Oct. 1, 2009 by John Collingwood

Want To Impress has teamed up with Fresh Element at BALTIC, to demonstrate the fine art of mixology in their spectacular private dining suites. This is most certainly pre dinner drinks with a difference.

As an extension of the renowned rooftop restaurant, Six, these striking modern spaces with spectacular views overlooking Newcastle Gateshead Quayside provide a unique and intimate private dining experience for up to 25 people. Menus designed from fresh, natural, local produce offer a wide selection of mouth-watering dishes.

To celebrate this collaboration, Managing Director, John Collingwood, shows another one of his new creations, The Baltic Bourbon.

37.5ml Woodford Reserve Bourbon
25ml Newcastle Brown Ale
12.5ml Cointreau
5ml Cherry juice
Orange Twist

25ml Measurer

Slowly add the remaining liquor whilst stirring
Top with further cubed ice when needed
