Quarantini time! Heston’s Gold Rush

Looking to up your cocktail creds during lockdown? We've rifled through Heston Blumenthal’s cocktail bible, so perk yourself up with a Gold Rush.

Heston Blumenthal's  HIND'S HEAD in Bray's Gold Rush cocktail served in a coop with purple flower

Planning on drinking your way through the summer? (Do we even have to ask?). Let us introduce you to Quarantini Time – a chance to stretch your cocktail know-how beyond a Bucks Fizz or Mojito.

Where better to start than the Heston Blumenthal’s cocktail bible from The Hind’s Head in Bray. While we can’t sit in The Hind’s Head’s Royal Lounge right now, we can tickle our tastebuds with one of its decadent drinkies. So cocktail glasses at the ready for a… Gold Rush. Complete the Hind’s Head look by adding taxidermy on your walls.
