Cocktails by Tyro Coker

July sees the addition of three new cocktails to the menu by Bar Supervisor Tyro Coker - inspired by our beachside location.  

Tyro was fortunate to go on a European Bartender School course in Phuket, Thailand (http://www.barschool.net/our-schools/ebs-phuket/#) earlier in the year. The Godolphin Arms supported him in this course, which allowed his development to continue during the refurbishment closure. 

During Tyro’s 4 week intensive course, resulting in him achieving a Diploma in bartending, he learnt 72 cocktails. The course was five days per week, and 7 hours a day, which we are sure was challenging, but expect the location helped to ease him through the course! Tyro learnt the cocktails on an 18 metre long bar, with the modern training facility also having a roof top free-pour and flair station, all located in the main beach area of Phuket.

Using the knowledge gained during his course, Tyro was inspired by the seaside location of the Godolphin Arms, in creating cocktails that are simple, but refreshing.

The three cocktails that Tyro has added to the menu are:

Sea Breeze – thirst-quenching with a bite
Vodka, Cranberry Juice, Grapefruit Juice

Bay Breeze – refreshing out on the terrace on a summer’s day
Vodka, Cranberry Juice, Pineapple Juice

Dark and Stormy – for those winter evenings
Captain Morgan’s Dark Rum, fresh lime Juice, Ginger Ale

If you have a specific cocktail that you would like Tyro to make, as long as we have the ingredients he will endeavour to make it for you.
