Harrogate Welcomes the World Official Cocktail

Harrogate Welcomes the World Official Cocktail

In celebration of the UCI Road Cycling Championships coming to Harrogate, Visit Harrogate want visitors from around the world to be welcomed and the success of the new world champions to be toasted with a brand new cocktail.

We gave the challenge of creating the new drink to Dario Luis winner of Harrogate's bar person of the year award at Harrogate Hospitality & Tourism Awards, 2019.

The inspiration for the drink comes from the fact that many of our international visitors will be experiencing marmalade on toast for the first time at breakfast during their stay. Dario wanted to celebrate this British tradition within the cocktail.

Dario’s cocktail, called Marmalade on Toast, is a work of art and very dramatically served with a foam top that is blow torched and served with 2 slices of cake that are “toasted” with the same blow torch and a ramekin of marmalade on the side. It uses locally made Slingsby Marmalade Gin and Slingsby Gin infused Marmalade to complete the Harrogate heritage of the cocktail. This cocktail will be available in Harrogate at The Fat Badger and SCRAN at the Yorkshire Hotel throughout the UCI championships.

Richard Spencer, Director of Visit Harrogate, said: “Harrogate as a destination represents not just the best of Yorkshire but the best of British. Marmalade on toast is associated with traditional English breakfasts, and of course Harrogate is home to the finest tearooms. It’s fantastic businesses have come together to create a bespoke Harrogate tipple.”

For anyone who is not an award winning bar person a simplified version of the cocktail, named the Harrogate Welcome has been created that can easily be made at home.

Please feel free to make and serve either of these cocktails under the title “Official Harrogate Welcomes the World” cocktail.
