The Victoria and The Albert: Two New Cocktails to Celebrate V&A’s Opening

As the ‘City of Discovery’ gets set to welcome the opening of the stunning new V&A Museum Dundee, Apex Hotels is celebrating the occasion with the creation of two bespoke cocktails.

The four-star hotel is just a 10-minute walk from the V&A museum. Dundee is the only city outside of London to have such an attraction.

David Montgomery, barman at the Apex City Quay Hotel and Spa, has watched as the site has transformed the waterfront. And along with the rest of the city, he can’t wait for it to welcome the first wave of visitors.

That’s why he has used his knowledge of classic and modern cocktail recipes to craft drinks worthy of toasting the new addition.

The hotel wanted to create something which would reflect the importance of the event. And the flavours will transport drinkers on a journey through history.

Both celebrate the food and drink culture of Dundee, featuring local Verdant gin, Aperol and Mackays Marmalade gin alongside grapefruit liqueur. Really easy for you to make them at home! You can follow the recipe below.

V&A Cocktail Recipes: 

Victoria Cocktail 

40ml Verdant Gin

20ml Aperol

25ml Mackays Marmalade Gin

5ml Grapefruit liqueur

¾ teaspoon citric acid

Enjoy the delicious Victoria cocktail!

Albert Cocktail
