Cocktails, spice and everything nice
As we all know, the Great British public love a good curry, so much so, it has become a national food in the UK. This autumn the team at Smiths Hotel at Gretna Green wants to heat you up and celebrate some of Britain’s most popular dishes with you and your friends or family.
Join us on the 9th November for a special evening full of flavour and spice.
What kinds of curry do smiths offer?
In Smiths hotel, our chefs, as traditional curry heirs, prepare fresh, organic ingredients to create our own curry recipes to excite your taste buds and warm your heart. Traditionally, Indian housewives would prepare their own curry pastes from scratch instead of using a pre-prepared paste. Curry powder doesn’t exist in India! There are many, many different varieties of curry, so recipe-specific spice mixes are more common. Our team at Smiths have followed the traditional techniques and created their own spice recipes to offer you an authentic flavour.
Why are curry and cocktails a good match?
Whether you are a big fan of Chicken Tikka Masala (we use authentic Punjabi Dhaba chicken to make it) or feeling adventurous for Beef Rendang (Indonesian coconut curry), great cocktails are the perfect partners to complement your journey through these delicious flavours.
Although some people consider a fresh beer as a perfect partner for curry, we believe the right cocktail is better! Our bar team have developed an impressive cocktail list to complement our own exciting curry recipes.
To balance the spice in curry, the cocktails need to be fruity and refreshing. Chambord Fizz and Classic Champagne Cocktails are just sweet enough to cool the taste buds; Larios Strawberry Gin normally mixed with tonic can add a much-needed touch of fruit to the mix; to pep up your party night you could choose one of our classic creations with a modern twist, such as the Long Island Iced Tea, Mango Margarita or Raspberry Martini for a great finish to your special and hopefully spicy night.
Whether you are a ‘Cosmo’ girl with a penchant for Punjab food or an ‘old-fashioned’ guy with a taste of Tikka; Smiths at Gretna Green will make the ideal dinner date for you!
Come join us for a relaxing night and savour the flavour!
