They are all rum-based, as you might imagine given the St John’s Square venue’s Caribbean theme.

But top of the pile - the most popular - is the Reggae Rum Punch

Assistant manager Jessica Hefferon explained: “We have a lovely cocktail bar area and cocktails are definitely popular with our customers - there are 30 to choose from.

“The most popular is the Reggae Rum Punch. It is made with Wray and Nephew over-proofed rum from Jamaica - that’s 63 per cent proof - so it is very strong and it comes in a lovely bottle.

“We add to that pineapple juice, strawberry puree, grenadine and top it with bitters with loads of ice and a slice of pineapple. It is delicious.”

World Cocktail Day is a celebration of cocktails around the globe, marking the publication date of the first definition of a cocktail on May 13th in 1806.
