Northampton’s Cocktail Guide: The Aspire

Aspire_AspersIt seems James Bond has misled a generation of gents into believing a martini is the go to drink when in casino. Found in Aspers’ award winning Tanzibar, the casino’s signature cocktail is the Aspire; eponymously named after the Casino’s free loyalty scheme. (Read our full Aspers’ review)

What’s in it?

  • Bulleit Bourbon
  • Grenadine
  • Cherry Brandy
  • Lime
  • Mint
  • Berries

The Aspire is bourbon based with a hint of cherry and lime. The richness of Bulleit Bourbon is contrasted with a splash of Grenadine and a measure of Cherry Brandy. For an added kick, the casino garnishes the glass with lime, mint and berries.

Gent tip: Aspers’ are so proud of their cocktail, they are eager to make sure every gent tries one. If you join the free Aspire loyalty scheme, they will give you an Aspire cocktail on the house! Make sure to have valid photo ID though.
