Get the First Dates experience at The Botanist in Cheltenham, with its new love-themed cocktail menu inspired by the show.

The Botanist is giving lovebirds in Gloucestershire a taste of romance with its new, limited-edition First Dates cocktail menu.

The new menu celebrates the fact that The Botanist's Bath restaurant is the new First Dates filming location — with the special cocktails available at The Botanist venues across the country, including The Brewery Quarter in Cheltenham.

As Valentine's Day is fast-approaching, it's a great excuse to treat your special someone to a cocktail or two, with each of the four love-themed cocktails carefully crafted by The Botanist's mixologists using fruits, botanicals and sweet treats to 'arouse the senses'. 

Choose from the Love Potion, made with rose liqueur, raspberry rum, rhubarb cordial, tonic and edible glitter; the Confetti Martini, with gin, vanilla liqueur, cranberry juice, foam and sprinkles; She Loves You, with coconut and hibiscus rum, raspberry liqueur, pomegranate and hibiscus cordial and coconut cream; and the showstopping Candyfloss Royale, with a potion bottle full of Cava, St Germain elderflower liqueur, strawberry and elderflower cordial to pour over a puff of strawberry candyfloss, accompanied by a tag with a QR code to scan and see what cupid has in store for the drinker in 2024. 

First Dates cocktails cost £9.25 each and are available until Tuesday 12 March 2024.
