Turtle Bay Durham launches sizzling new tropical cocktail menu

Turtle Bay Durham has announced a brand new cocktail menu as well as two new “Steel Bottom Beers” which will launch on 12th September, serving up some much needed sunshine as the Autumn months beckon.

Turtle Bay Durham has ramped up its island-style beach bar vibes to keep the heatwave mood going right through to Autumn with an expertly curated new cocktail collection, all designed to make the magic of the “Caribbean social” part of the everyday here in Durham.  With a mix of classics given a signature Turtle Bay twist to brand new creations and the launch of  a Caribbean favourite, Steel Bottom Beers, an escape awaits on Durham high street this Autumn.

The brand new cocktail creations include the Caribbean Candy Sour with Kingston 62 Gold Rum, amaretto & falernum, green melon liqueur, apple, grapefruit and fresh lime…. A wicked sweet and sour blend that will transport guests to sunnier climes in an instant.

Turtle Bay have also added their trademark island vibes to a stone cold classic as they launch their own new take on the espresso martini, with the aptly named Dessert Island cocktail. This salted caramel martini is the perfect after dinner drink, consisting of dark rum, Tia Maria, cold brew coffee, salted caramel sauce and vanilla. It’s a dreamy and decadent dessert in a glass.

The team have also re-worked a classic long island to bring guests the Tobago Tea which includes Duppy White rum, vodka, tequila, gin & triple sec, grapefruit, mango and fresh lime.

As well as the brand new creations, Turtle Bay have brought back old favourites with a fresh twist, such as the refreshing Jamrock Punch with gin, passionfruit, strawberry, apple, grapefruit & fresh lime, adding another deliciously fresh new gin cocktail to the tropical mix. And back by popular demand is the infamous Tingwray, made up of Wray & Nephew, white rum, grapefruit and fresh lime, it’s a perfect combination of strength and flavour and one designed to kick Autumn off in style.

A totally new experience coming to Turtle Bay are the Steel Bottom Beers, inspired by one of Jamaica’s most iconic drinks. Steel Bottom Beers take their name from the shot of rum at the bottom of the glass and the result is a supercharged glass of Red Stripe.  Guests can pick from a classic Jamaican Shandy, cold draft Red Stripe with a shot of Appleton Estate rum, mixed with fiery ginger beer and bitters, or a Pink Stripe, cold draft Red Stripe sweetened with watermelon, grapefruit and strawberry and given Extra spirit with a shot of Duppy spiced rum.

The brand ew cocktails, as well as many of the Turtle Bay favourites, are included in the Caribbean Social’s famed Happy Hour. Happy Hour runs all day until 7pm, and again with the Late Happy Hour from 9:30pm Sunday-Thursday and from 10pm Friday and Saturday.
