Liverpool’s Greene King pubs launch special cocktail for Jubilee Bank Holiday Weekend
1 year ago
To celebrate this year’s Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday Weekend, UK pub operator Greene King will add an extra special cocktail to its city centre and town pub menus for the weekend.
The ‘Queen’s Tipple’ is a resurrection of the classic French aperitif the Zaza, a mixture of Dubonnet and Beefeater London Dry Gin.
Once popular in mid 19th Century, the cocktail is a rich, fruity, and slightly bitter-sweet drink served straight and enjoyed sipped over time.
In a nod to Her Majesty’s love of Corgis, Greene King, which operates dog friendly pubs will give anyone who visits their participating pubs over the weekend with a Corgi and/or Corgi memorabilia a ‘Queen’s Tipple’ on the house.
Alex Dawson, Business Unit Director for Urban Pubs at Greene King, said:
“The Platinum Jubilee will be one of the biggest bank holidays this year and we really wanted to do something to celebrate the occasion,”
“We’ve given the Zaza a modern twist with a new name, it’s a beautiful drink which is very rarely seen on menus these days, so it’s great that we can bring it back,”
“Like the Queen, we’re big dog lovers, with the majority of our urban pubs being dog friendly, so we thought getting Corgis involved would be a fun way to celebrate and we know our teams are looking forward to welcoming our four-legged friends and their owners.”
The ‘Queen’s Tipple’ will be complimentary for those who visit a town or city-centre pub across England, Wales and Edinburgh from Thursday 2nd June – Sunday 5th June (with a Corgi or Corgi merchandise in tow).
